University of Kentucky

Welcome to Greater Nashville!


  Nashville Area Alumni on Facebook (login required)


All alumni are welcome to join in the University of Kentucky alumni network.

If you are new to the area, send me an e-mail. I would be happy to meet you and talk to you about the community and our club.

If you are looking for a closer connection to the University, you can find it here. Each year we hold several events for local alumni and young alumni. Some of these events include watch parties for UK basketball and football games, student recruitment receptions, social outings to cultural and sporting events including Sounds baseball games, scholarship fundraisers and an annual Summer Picnic just to name a few. We would love to have you join us for all of them. It is through the support of dues paying members that we are able to provide programs such as these.

If you are not from Nashville but happen to be in the area during one of our events, feel free to stop by. Any UK Alumni are always welcome.

Please let me know if you are interested in becoming more involved in the club or if you have suggestions on how we may better serve our membership.

Sincerely,

Harvey Jacobs
President

Mission

The Greater Nashville University of Kentucky Alumni Club is the local chapter of the University of Kentucky Alumni Association.  Our goal is to promote the University of Kentucky and keep our alumni connected. 

Annually, the local Alumni Club provides funding for scholarships for one or more Tennessee area students attending the University of Kentucky.  In 2008 the Greater Nashville UK Alumni Club presented a $1,000 scholarship to two deserving students, Heather Carlin and Michael Crady.  Both students are attending the university and are able to boast of great success stories.  This year our club has again awarded two $1,000 scholarships to local students, Jacob Allen and Annessa Motes.  Both students are excited about what is sure to be a successful academic career in Lexington.  

The GNUKAC won the Scholarship Award for out of state clubs for the year 2005 and the Best Friend-Raising Programs Award for out of state clubs two years in a row for 2006 and 2007.  In 2008, the club received two awards for out of state clubs: Best Contribution to Student Recruitment and Best Contribution to Membership. For scholarship information, please contact the UK Admissions Office.
