We love to hear what our alumni are doing! Here are just a few of the notes we’ve received recently…
Alumna Ashley Hogan-Gancarz writes: “I just wanted to send a few pics from my recent volunteer trip to Rwanda! I made sure to bring a Tennessee T-shirt with me and gave it away with a whole suitcase of clothes to the community when I left. I was in Rwanda this February to help build a three-classroom block onto a primary school with 20 co-workers from Turner Broadcasting Europe.”
Andrea Lankford (’86) has published her fourth book, Ranger Confidential: Living, Working, and Dying in the National Parks. Lankford writes, “Recently I was interviewed on “WVMetro Outdoor News” by ANOTHER UT grad, radio host/and outdoor writer Chris Lawrence. During the interview, we talked about ANOTHER UT alum, ranger Noel McJunkin, who is in the book. Pretty cool.”
