Alumni Awards Ceremony Still Planned for June 8
High waters on the Iowa River may make navigation to the Levitt Center for University Advancement a little trickier, but the university building remains open for business—and the 2013 University of Iowa Alumni Association Distinguished Alumni Awards luncheon still is planned for Saturday, June 8.
With North Dubuque Street closed near Mayflower Hall, and potential closures at North Riverside and Rocky Shore drives, organizers have planned an alternate route to the Levitt Center. Attendees should be mindful of possible delays and plan extra time to ensure safety.
The Distinguished Alumni Awards recognize the outstanding achievements and service of UI alumni and friends. The 2013 recipients include two Tippie alumni, Stephen Rasmussen and Kenneth Leuer, and Professor Emeritus Gene Savin (see earlier press release).
