It was a beautiful day at the UAS Noyes Pavilion when the Auke Lake Trail dedication ceremony was held June 11. Chancellor John Pugh thanked campaign co-chairs, Laraine Derr, Christine Phillips, and Jim King Sr. and the donors to the campaign that helped UAS raise over $1.22 million, with $999,274 in private support and $223,982 in public support through the Alaska Trails Initiative. Former governor and campaign donor Bill Sheffield, for whom a new bridge is named, was in attendance as well as former legislator and donor Arliss Sturgulewski.
University of Alaska Southeast's Alumni & Friends is the go-to organization for people who want to support UAS in a fun and meaningful way. Led by President Jerry Burnett (MBA '87, MPA '89), the board has recently been focusing on two of its goals: Supporting its multi-regional alumni base and encouraging student success through its scholarship fund.
