* UE's Oldest Alum to Be Featured on NBC Today Show

It’s not very often that an institution gets to celebrate the 105th birthday of an alum. We wanted to let the UE family know that we submitted Altha Warren Plane’s birthday to the NBC Today Show to consider for Willard Scott’s section acknowledging 100+ year old birthdays. We have received confirmation this afternoon that barring any major breaking news, natural disaster, or the like, that she will be featured in Willard’s segment this coming Monday, August 15. (Her birthday is the next day).  The segment should air between 8 and 10 a.m. in both the eastern time zone and the Evansville television market (it’s just an anomaly of the way the show airs here). Wherever you live, if you want to make certain that you see it, please set your DVRs for the Today Show for the entire 7-10 a.m. time period on Monday. If something happens and the segment is cancelled, they will call University Relations with an updated date and we will pass it on.  Cheers to Ace Altha!! 


Upcoming Events

* United Way Day of Caring Sign Up Is Underway

Each year UE supports United Way by allowing employees to volunteer during business hours on the United Way Day of Caring. This year it is Friday, Sept. 9. UE employees who are interested in participating are asked to complete the volunteer form at this link. Employees DO need supervisor approval, but are not required to take leave time to participate. UE will volunteer again this year with Evansville ARC and ARC Industries on several projects. The projects are listed on the volunteer form. Please indicate your preference of projects and we will try to accommodate your choice. UE has been a proud leader in Day of Caring participation in past years. This year President Tom and Dr. Sharon Kazee will be joining our team and they encourage your participation. We would like to have many more volunteers to join us this year!

All Day of Caring workers are invited to an early morning breakfast at the Centre before starting work. Evansville ARC and United Way greatly appreciate your time, hard work, and willingness to serve our community.  Thank you!
Please fill out the volunteer form and return it to Brian Conner in Ridgway University Center, room 229, by Aug. 10 (if you want to be able to choose your T-shirt size) and no later than Aug. 29 (your choice of T-shirt size can not be guaranteed).
