UWAA President's Message
Fellow alumni, we are halfway through our 120th year of service to alumni and students, and I am pleased that more alumni are becoming members of the association each day. We are moving towards our goal of 20,000 members by June 30, 2015. UWAA membership is meaningful and never more so than when you have the opportunity to participate in significant decisions that advance the association. In March, we shared with you a plan to restructure the governance model, an outcome of a year-long strategic planning process. Incident to this evaluation, the UWAA’s Board of Directors has written and proposed a restatement of its bylaws, designed to strengthen the governance function and expand outreach to our alumni throughout the world.
To promote the excellence, distinction and uniqueness of the University of Wyoming to the people of the state, the nation and the world, and to foster a spirit of loyalty and community among its alumni, students and friends today, tomorrow and forever.
Degrees for Success
Alumna Stephanie Sherrodd’s degrees from UW helped her achieve CEO status.
Stephanie Sherrodd is the CEO of Texas Dow Employee Credit Union (TDECU). TDECU is one of the largest and fastest-growing credit unions in Texas. It serves Houston and other communities along the Gulf Coast. Although Sherrodd lives and works in Texas, she still flies the Wyoming flag at home and keeps some UW memorabilia in her office.
“We Are Wyoming” was the 2014 Homecoming theme. The week of festivities kicked off Oct. 11 with The Big Event, where UW gave back to the Laramie community through service projects. The week continued with a variety of events and student competitions around campus and town, including downtown community window painting, Homecoming sing, car push and spirit relay.
Thank you to the 500+ alumni and friends who donated to the Scholarship Club and to the holders of Brown & Gold Wyoming license plates for funding 100 percent of the scholarships. A list of the 2014 Scholarship Club donors may be viewed at uwyo.edu/alumni/scholarships.
