Alumni Giving – National Alumni Center Building Committee Update

We first want to acknowledge the passing of our dynamic leader and co-chair of the Alumni Center Building Committee, David Walters. David was very committed to raising the money required to build the National Alumni Center. He has laid the foundation for a successful campaign to achieve the objective of raising the $2.8 million for the construction of the facility. He will be greatly missed.


Congratulations to all UAPB Alumni who were recently elected as public officials, as well as those who have remained in office and continue to serve these United States of America. The recent election was rewarding, as well as disappointing in several areas. Nevertheless, we continue to move forward as a people.
