NAS Urges Alumni to Take Action
I am writing to you as President of the National Alumni Society at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and I am honored to address not only UAB alumni, but the alumni of the UA System, including those members of our Tuscaloosa and Huntsville campuses. We view each of you as valued family members.
It is unfortunate that my colleague at the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa has addressed a letter to UA Alumni stating that Senate Bill 348 would be highly detrimental to the UA System and all campuses. In support of the position, Mr. Warren states three things, each of which individually and collectively could not be further from the truth.
Dear Members of the UAB National Alumni Society,
Please allow this to serve as official notice to all UAB National Alumni Society active members that a special meeting has been called by the active membership to discuss the following agenda items:
The agenda items to be discussed will be as follows:
- A statement from the NAS calling for the immediate re-instatement of the Football, Rifle and Bowling programs.
- A progress report by the NAS Board regarding the statement issued in January.
- Further discussion on OSKR.
This meeting will take place on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. at the UAB National Alumni Society House. The Alumni House is located at 1301 10th Avenue South, Birmingham, Alabama, 35294.
James W. (Wes) Smith
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 modeled by Bill Voigt.
Torrey Ward was a great basketball player for the Blazers but he was more than that, he was a great man.
He was an exemplary son, a great father, a dedicated coach, a mentor to his players, a friend you could count on, a man who always stood up for what was right and at the same time loved to pull a prank and joke around. Torrey Ward had integrity, character and a great sense of humor. His smile lit up the room when he walked in and he always had a smile.
He was a family man and loved his children, mother and grandmother deeply. He loved the game of basketball but also loved the game of life.
Torrey Ward will be missed by all that knew him.
Registration opens at 4:00 p.m. and the race begins at 6:00 p.m. at the UAB National Alumni Society House at 1301 10th Avenue South (next to Snoozy's).
