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
