On Friday, Oct. 13, UAA's largest alumni tradition saw more than 300 UAA graduates and partners pack the Alaska Airlines Center auxiliary gym for the annual UAA Alumni Association Homecoming Luncheon to reconnect with their alma mater while raising donations to benefit UAA programs and scholarships. In just one hour, the gathered alumni raised over $10,000.
In collaboration with the Anchorage School District, this year's theme was partners in education, and featured stories of the importance of an Alaska education and the critical roles we all serve in providing educational pathways to our next generation of leaders. This year’s presenters were keynote speaker Cal Williams, Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters ’22, community activist and past president of the NAACP Alaska chapter; and guest speaker Brad Hillwig, M.B.A. General Management ’10, founder and CEO of Greatland Studios.
