This past weekend, the UK Alumni Association hosted a legacy @seeblue event for high school age students and their parents. They had the opportunity to gain insight into the college admissions process, catch the Big Blue Spirit, and hear from current UK students about life as a Wildcat. To learn more about the legacy initiative program, visit www.ukalumni.net/legacy.

A big blue welcome to our Board of Directors who are in town for today's meeting! We appreciate their service to the @universityofky!

The UK Alumni Association Board of Directors and staff are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of UK Alumni Association President Peggy Meszaros on Monday following a brief illness. A Hopkinsville native, she received her master’s degree in home economics from the UK College of Education in 1972 and went on to receive a Ph.D. from the University of Maryland in 1977. She led a distinguished career in higher education. From 1985 to 1993 she served as dean of the UK College of Human Environmental Sciences. During much of that period, she served on the UK Athletics Association Board. She was inducted into the UK Alumni Association Hall of Distinguished Alumni in 1995, was a founding member of the UK Erikson Society, a member of the UK Fellows Society and Women & Philanthropy, as well as a Life Member of the UK Alumni Association. She retired in 2015 as the William E. Lavery Professor of Human Development and director of the Research Center for Information Technology Impacts on Children, Youth, and Families at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State College (VT). From 1993 to 1994 she was dean of the College of Human Resources at VT and from 1994 to 2000 served as senior vice president and provost, the highest-ranking female in the history of that institution. Peggy displayed remarkable leadership ability, an energetic spirit, strong respect for others and a warm smile. She had a tremendous loyalty to the University of Kentucky and the UK Alumni Association and was recognized in 2011 with the UK Alumni Association Distinguished Service Award. Susan V. Mustian, president-elect of the UK Alumni Association, said, “I’ve had the honor of working closely with Peggy the past two years and the privilege of her friendship. Her dedication to the University of Kentucky Alumni Association was tireless, and her support of our great university was immeasurable.”
