The third in a series, “The Razorback Family: Generations,” will premiere during the 2010 Pride of Arkansas Tour in February. Produced by UA Productions and the Arkansas Alumni Association, the video features the work of University of Arkansas students Clint Fullen ’10, Joel Eikenberry ’10, Erin Gilleece ’07, ’10 and Kelly Brophy ’13.
You may see people you recognize in the video as University of Arkansas graduates share memories of their alma mater and what it means to be a Razorback while historical campus photos flash on the screen. One graduate tells of her family, which boasts five generations of University of Arkansas alumni.
The video is part of the 30-minute program at each of the 47 stops across Arkansas and in chapter areas of Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri. This year’s journey will include an added stop in Hope, and three separate events in the Little Rock area, giving those residents more convenient options.
While the goal of the tour is to celebrate the Pride of Arkansas – our current and future alumni, this is also your opportunity to learn more about what’s happening at the University of Arkansas and the Arkansas Alumni Association. Plus, you will have the chance to connect with alumni who live in your area. And, of course, no Alumni event would be complete without Calling the Hogs.
The kick-off event will be at the Arkansas World Trade Center in Rogers on Feb. 1, and the grand finale is scheduled for Feb. 26 at the Janelle Y. Hembree Alumni House in Fayetteville. Even if there’s no tour stop in your hometown, we encourage you to find one near you, bring your family and friends, and come join us at any of the Pride of Arkansas Tour stops.
