Eddy Stewart has qualified for the Season 7 Finals of the smash TV show American Ninja Warrior.
A 2006 UAB graduate, Stewart reached the finals after a strong showing at the Orlando Finals earlier this summer.
UAB senior Halli Williamson of Oneonta says it would be impossible to put into words what she has experienced in Kampala, Uganda, during a nine-week internship this summer.
The UAB Student Alumni Society member, 22, volunteered with Sozo Children, a non-governmental organization with an office in nearby Avondale. She applied for the program and was accepted, and she and 12 other interns raised $5,000 each to take the trip. Sozo has four children’s homes in Kampala, and Williamson assisted in the group’s work toward The Village Project, which will be a full village with homes, a school, a church and a medical clinic.
