UHS Distinguished Alumnus Award Celebration

What We Do

UHS Distinguished Alumnus Award Celebration

Please join us Saturday, Sept. 17, at the Urbandale Golf and Country Club for the UHS Distinguished Alumnus Award and Celebration! Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

The UHS Distinguished Alumnus Award and Celebration committee is a sub-committee of the Urbandale Alumni Association and made up of seven volunteer Urbandale High School alumni. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit part of the Urbandale Schools and Alumni Foundation. This committee was organized to plan, promote and execute a new event which would include a nomination and selection of an Urbandale alumni for their distinguished contributions to the community with award presentation and a fundraising event with proceeds going towards Urbandale High School scholarships.

The Urbandale Alumni Association mission is to connect alumni, supporters and community by promoting a sense of pride and engaged participation through programs, education and student scholarships and we are hoping we hit all the marks in this event!

Congratulations to Rick Kading, Class of 1976, for being named the first Distinguished Alumnus of the Year!
