JOANIE IGEL DUGGER '80 STEPS DOWN AS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF UAAA

On March 31, 2018, UA Education Foundation (UA+Ed) and UA Alumni Association (UAAA) Executive Director Joanie Igel Dugger '80 stepped down to embrace new adventures and opportunities.

During her sixteen years leading both organizations, Joanie created and implemented many innovative and creative projects while working to build the database of all UAHS alumni and to help maintain alumni connections.

Taking on the responsibilities of Executive Director of UA+Ed and UAAA is Alice Finley, who previously worked with Joanie as the UA+Ed Program & Project Specialist for UA+Ed. Alice writes:

Dear Upper Arlington Alumni,

I am honored to accept the position of Executive Director of the Upper Arlington Education Foundation and Alumni Association. As all of you know, Joanie Dugger has done an amazing job leading us for the last 17 years. Her passion and dedication are unparalleled. I am grateful to have worked beside her for many years and learned so much about the Upper Arlington Schools and our rich traditions.

I've been a resident of Upper Arlington since 1996. Neither my husband, Price, nor I grew up here - I graduated from Hamilton Township and Price from Gahanna. We met at Capital University and married in 1985. I taught special education (SBH) in Southwestern City Schools for 10 years before starting a family. We have two boys, Rees (UAHS '11) and Perry (UAHS '14).

We moved to Upper Arlington primarily for the great schools. Our boys both received an amazing education from incredibly dedicated, passionate teachers. And, despite being "outsiders," Price and I have assimilated well and have been active volunteers in the schools as well as many neighborhood organizations and programs.

My involvement with the Education Foundation started as a Golden Bear Bash volunteer 10 years ago. I became a trustee in 2012 and was chair of the board in 2013 and 2014. I filled in "temporarily" to help Joanie Dugger, the Executive Director, in the office in 2015 and after a year, became a permanent part of the staff as the Program & Project Specialist.

In my years at the UA+Ed Foundation, I've helped with, and attended, alumni events such as the Golden Bear Rock Fest, Fourth of July Block Parties, and the UA Alumni Day Open Houses at the High School.

I look forward to working with UAAA president Ron Johnson and all the alumni to support and celebrate the tradition of excellence in education in Upper Arlington.

Go Bears,
Alice Finley

      
DEADLINE ! NOMINATIONS FOR 2018 UAAA AWARDS DUE BY APRIL 30

Each year since 1993, the UA Alumni Association has honored our graduates in two categories. They are as follows:

An OUTSTANDING ALUMNUS is an alum (or group of alumni) who has generously dedicated his or her time to the service of the Upper Arlington Alumni Association and its mission. This service can include volunteer time dedicated to the schools or the community.

A DISTINGUISHED ALUMNUS is an alum (or group of alumni) who is honored for his or her personal educational or career achievement.

See the list of previous recipients of the Outstanding and Distinguished Alumnus Awards.

Print the downloadable form and mail it to us.
   

IMPORTANT: YOU MUST BE A MEMBER OF UAAA TO NOMINATE AN ALUM. Not a member yet? Please join here. Dues are $20/year, or you can become a Life Member or a Golden Bear Member and save money over the years. Also, we offer a payment plan if you are interested. See details here.
  
SAVE THE DATE!    UA ALUMNI DAY ON SUNDAY, JULY 1 FROM 1 - 4 PM

ATTENTION ALL ALUMS!

Please save the date of Sunday, July 1 from 1:30 - 4:30 pm, when all alums are invited to gather at the high school for UA Alumni Day. Reunion classes are building this event into their reunion party schedules, and we will be inviting former teachers and administrators too!

During Alumni Day, we will award the 2018 UAAA Outstanding and Distinguished Alumnus Awards (nominate someone, if you're a UAAA member). Deadline for nominations is April 30, 2018.

We'll display a wide selection of historic UAHS memorabilia, and the Bear Essentials School Store will be open so you can purchase UAHS spirit wear and souvenirs. Enjoy lunch at one of the food trucks (cash basis) and enjoy a performance by the UAHS Marching Band! Visit with other alums and former teachers and administrators while walking the halls of our great high school.

We'll have UAHS student guides throughout the afternoon for tours of the high school, and remember: residents of Upper Arlington recently passed a levy/bond issue to provide the funding to tear down the current high school and build a new one on the property, so this may be your last opportunity to tour our alma mater.

We hope to see all our alums at the high school on July 1. SEE ALL THE DETAILS HERE.

100 YEARS OF UA! CELEBRATE UPPER ARLINGTON'S CENTENNIAL!

2018 will be a year full of Centennial celebrations here in Upper Arlington. To see a full schedule of events, please visit the Centennial website.

The Centennial logo, left, was created by UA alumnus and graphic designer Jenny Buell Ledman '90, as a gift to the City. Jenny built the design around UA’s Golden Bear, with prominent text, a burst of fireworks as a salute to UA’s most popular community celebration, the Fourth of July, and featuring the tagline “A Cherished Past | A Golden Future.”

To commemorate the first 100 years of Upper Arlington, the UA Historical Society is presenting the book A Cherished Past, A Golden Future: Celebrating the First One Hundred Years of Upper Arlington. The book has more than 200 pages depicting UA's first 100 years through easy-to-read stories and vibrant photos, both old and new.

DEAN COLOSIMO '83 - SIMO'S PASTA SAUCE

Dean Colosimo writes: My Father prepared his pasta sauce every Sunday for our family. He was the town barber, and always made extra for friends, neighbors, and customers to take home to their families. As a kid, I remember the neighborhood folks bringing the containers back to my dad asking for refills while telling him how good his sauce was. Thirty years later, I decided to revive this family tradition with my two sons.

We have been consistently certified at the highest level by the American Animal Hospital Association.

THIS "BEARS" REPEATING    ALUMNI NEWS
1948 and
1950

Over the Rainbow, The Road Taken is a collection of stories of the adventures of a couple who in their late forties decided to follow their love of learning and experiencing the natural world by making their avocation become their retirement vocations as U.S. National Park Service rangers.

Frank Starr '48 and Penny Clemens Starr '50 spent two seasons interpreting the wonders of Jewel Cave National Monument in the Black Hills of South Dakota and a season as the Glacier Point rangers in Yosemite National Park. They thought they would spend summers for the rest of their lives in Yosemite, but they were asked to work the following season (April through October) at Brooks Camp in Alaska's Katmai National Park. They couldn't turn down the chance to live, learn and work with the brown bears of the Brooks River. That experience put them on the course of seeing and learning the Great Land: Katmai National Park and Preserve, Aniakchak National Monument and Preserve, Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, and the Noatak River National Preserve.

UAAA FAQs ... LET US ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS!
  

Q. MY NAME ISN'T ON THE BEARALUMS.COM SITE ANYWHERE!

A. Because we respect and protect our alums' privacy, we list names and email addresses on Bearalums.com ONLY when they are personally submitted by the alum. We do it this way because some people prefer not to have their email address available on a public web site.

 If you are not listed on your class page but wish to be, please complete this form.

   
Q. MY NAME IS ON THE LOST LIST, BUT I AM RIGHT HERE!

A. If you see your name at the bottom of your class page as a "Lost Alum," even if you are listed in the email section of the page, all this means is that we don't have a current MAILING ADDRESS for you. Please update your information here, and we'll remove you from the Lost List right away.

If you see someone else's name on the Lost List at the bottom of each class page, and you know his or her location, please let us know, or contact that classmate and ask him or her to contact UAAA.

   
Q. I GRADUATED / MOVED / GOT MARRIED / CHANGED MY NAME BACK TO MY MAIDEN NAME
A. We hope you'll remember to contact UAAA to let us know any changes in your status, your name, your address, phone number, and email. Keeping our database accurate is very important to us, and allows class reunion chairmen and other school-related groups, such as athletic teams, musical organization, to reach you when something exciting is happening.
   
Q. MAINTAINING OUR TWO UAAA DATABASES

A. Our goal is to maintain the most complete and accurate database that we possibly can. We are asking for your help! And thank you to those of you who have helped us through your membership dues; your financial help allows us to provide the ongoing hosting and maintenance fees of our Web site.

When we started Bearalums.com in 2000, we had approximately 320 email addresses in our database; we currently have more than 13,000 alums' email addresses listed on Bearalums.com!

   
Q. WHO DO I CONTACT FOR WHAT?
A. Different departments of UAAA handle different requests, but we'll make sure that you get to the right person!

BE SAFE! IMPORTANT NEWS ABOUT YOUR PRIVACY AND SECURITY

IMPORTANT: We want to make sure that everyone understands about UAAA's two separate databases.

DATABASE 1: THE ONE THAT IS NEVER PUBLIC! We have one database that contains the name and graduation year of each Upper Arlington High School graduate. This database also contains the each graduate's home address, phone number, and other information such as the teams and clubs to which he or she belonged. We can call on this information when a certain group, such as a sports team, wants to have a gathering or celebration.

DATABASE 2: THE ONE ON BEARALUMS.COM The other database consists of names and email addresses for Bearalums.com. Each name and email address has to be submitted personally by the alum, since not all grads wish to be listed in this public forum. On the Bearalums.com web site, the email addresses are divided by graduation year, and at the bottom of each list is a "Lost Alumni" list, consisting of the names of people from that class for whom we have outdated home addresses.

Please know that UAAA values and protects your information. We will never share or sell any of your personal information under any circumstances.

IMPORTANT: Even if we have your email address, you will be on the Lost list until we have updated home address information.

Please use the UPDATE MY INFORMATION forms to submit or change your Bearalums.com listing.

NOTE: Although nearly everyone has moved toward electronic communication, we still encourage our reunion coordinators to do a general mailing to their classmates using address labels generated from Database 1, since not every alum is registered with an email address on Bearalums.com, and certainly not all alums use Facebook. This method helps us find out which home addresses are no longer valid so that we can try to find our lost alumni.
