First UAB National Alumni Society President
It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of UAB alum and Birmingham civic leader, William M. Voigt (MBA '72) known to many of us as Bill, who passed away Tuesday, March 31 after a long battle with cancer and Parkinson’s disease.
Bill Voigt was a loyal UAB alum and you could find him and his wife, Linda, at almost any UAB event. They were dedicated to the mission and vision of our university and it was this dedication that led them to establish the UAB William M. Voigt Student Scholarship (Click HERE to support the William M. Voigt Student Scholarship). This scholarship is based on leadership, community service and extra-curricular activities which were traits modelled by Bill Voigt.
Join the UAB National Alumni Society in congratulating Coach Jerod Haase and his team on their recent Conference USA Tournament Championship and appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
Students, employees, faculty, and staff are invited to this special event at the UAB National Alumni Society House for a FREE dinner.

At UAB, we know that knowledge is a powerful thing to create and share. Our university's impact on education, health care, and quality of life cuts across classes, cultures, and continents and reaches from Birmingham out to the far corners of the globe where our alumni teach, lead, and serve. Each day, and with every new graduate, that reach grows.
This year, we are continuing to visit your communities to see firsthand how the knowledge cultivated at UAB is changing your world.
