Tennessee Alumnus

Centennial Alumni: Fall 2017

From about 370,000 alumni representing every University of Tennessee campus, we’re bringing you stories of just 100 of the most highly accomplished grads who reflect the whole as Alumnus celebrates 100 years of continuous publication.

The first of three, near-equal installments of Centennial Alumni profiles appeared in the winter issue. In the spring issue, we brought you the second installment. In this, our fall issue, we are bringing you our final installment.

All this year, as we celebrate our centennial, the magazine is reflecting on where the university has been, where we are now and where we’ll be going in our efforts to strengthen the proud tradition of academic excellence. You’ll see that excellence reflected in the stories of our Centennial Alumni. We invite you to read about them and enjoy the sense of pride that comes from being part of our UT alumni family.
