This year’s officers of the UT Alumni Association are an experienced lot, and two of them are second-generation alumni leaders.
President Ford Little (Knoxville ’86) is the son of Becky Little (Knoxville ’62), former treasurer of UTAA, and treasurer Kim Cross (Knoxville ’85) is the daughter of Hunter Wright, association president in 1999.
The other 2008-09 officers are no strangers to UT alumni work either. President-elect Dan Brown has been active in the Williamson County UT Alumni Chapter and served on the UTAA Board of Governors since 2005. Mike Moss, this year’s UTAA vice-president, is a two-time president of the Shelby County UT Alumni Chapter, a Board of Governors member, and a former member of the UT Martin alumni board.
Debbie Ingram, national chair of annual giving, just completed a term as president of UTAA and is a former president of the Hamilton County UT Alumni Chapter.
The officers serve 1-year terms. As president-elect, Brown automatically will move up to president next June.
