PIKEVILLE, Ky. –
University of Pikeville
alumni and friends recently reconnected over dinner at Kanye Prime Steakhouse,
located in one of Nashville’s trendiest neighborhoods, the Gulch. Even with
their beloved UPIKE miles away, alumni in legendary Nashville don’t let
distance keep them from giving back and contributing to the vibrancy of their
sustain the university in many ways,” said Howard Roberts, dean of UPIKE’s
Coleman College of Business. “Their participation in university-sponsored
events, volunteerism and donations make an impact that is immeasurable but is
highly valued by the university. An active alumni base generally indicates that
graduates feel like they received a quality educational experience on this
campus. The UPIKE alumni base in the greater Nashville area is strong and
our visits there are well attended.”
In attendance to
dine with guests and update them on all things UPIKE were President Burton J. Webb
and First Lady Kay Webb, Vice President of Advancement and Alumni Relations David
R. Hutchens and Roberts. Conversations circled around how the university in
many ways has changed but remains steady on its foundation of family-like
support, innovative learning and student-centered opportunities.
With events like
the one Nashville, alumni like Randa Newman (‘10) are able to keep up with the
university that continues to impact them.
“I had so
much fun at the UPIKE alumni dinner in Nashville,” said Newman. “It was nice to see familiar faces, meet new
friends and dine in one of the best restaurants in the city. UPIKE will always
hold a special place in my heart because of the amazing people working diligently
behind the scenes to provide opportunities for students in an underrepresented
region. It means a lot to me that UPIKE makes a continuous effort to stay in
touch with alumni and is always exploring ways to grow and improve. I’m forever
proud to be a Bear!”
