University of Tennessee Alumni Chapters offer a way to connect alumni and friends across the country while supporting the university and local communities. The award-winning alumni chapter for the Triangle Area (Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Chapel Hill) of North Carolina is no exception.
Earlier this month, the group participated in a Miracle League baseball game, in which each alumnus befriended and partnered with a special-needs child. By giving only a few hours of their time, our alumni made an impact in the life of several children.
Last August, the chapter hosted their annual event at Backyard Bistro in Raleigh with Kellie Jolly Harper, UT alumna and head coach of women’s basketball at North Carolina State University. The group was intrigued by Harper’s experience playing for Lady Vols Head Coach Pat Summitt and was inspired by her journey to become a head coach as well.
If you live near the Triangle Area, there are numerous upcoming ways to get involved. Join the chapter for a community service project on Saturday, April 30, to build a house for a local deserving family. The group will meet at 8 a.m. and work until 2 p.m. Learn more.
On May 12, join UT alumni for a day at the ball field! Bring your family and friends to meet fellow alumni and watch the Durham Bulls take on the Indianapolis Indians. The cost of the event is $15 per person, which includes a game ticket and a food and beverage credit. Learn more.
And save the date for May 24, when the chapter hosts Bruce Wheeler, professor emeritus of the UT Knoxville Department of History. Wheeler will discuss “Who Is the Most Influential UT President?”
