During the 82nd annual UF Homecoming Parade on October 7, CLAS hosted its traditional homecoming barbeque in front of Keene-Flint Hall off University Avenue. Thanks to a generous donation from Kathy Amick Cardwell (BA, English, 1969), Joe Ganey (BS, Zoology, 1973) and Joe Jacoby (BA, Political Science, 1974), hungry Gator fans were treated to a free Sonny’s Real Pit Bar-B-Q lunch and potato chips provided by Golden Flake Snack Foods while enjoying display tables and exhibits set up by CLAS departments and organizations. The CLAS Student Council (CLASSC) entered a float in the parade, while linguistics alumna Kendra Todd (BA, 2000) served as a grand marshal.

Winner of season three of Donald Trump’s The Apprentice, Todd was awarded a CLAS Outstanding Alumni Award during a special awards brunch on campus on October 8 preceding the homecoming football game. She served as keynote speaker at the ceremony and was honored along with nine fellow alumni: Ava G. Byrne (BA, sociology, 1976), Ulla M. Connor (MA, English, 1971), Juan C. del Valle (BA and MA, geography, 1993 and 1996), Manuel L. Diaz (BA and MA, Latin American studies, 1969 and 1970), Robert O. Kincart (BS, chemistry, 1972), John W. Mintmire (BS and PhD, physics, 1976 and 1980), Glenn M. Parker (BS, zoology, 1986), Albert A. Sanchez, Jr. (BA, philosophy, 1975), and Eric A. Wagner (PhD, sociology, 1973).
