During the August meeting, Sam J. Winterberg IV (Zeta Rho–Arkansas-Fort Smith ’09) was one of seven new members introduced to the University of Arkansas – Fort Smith Alumni Advisory Council.
“The UAFS Alumni Office relies heavily on the Alumni Advisory Council work and engagement,” Alumni Director Jasmine Smith said. “The time and energy each member puts back into the institution is deeply appreciated.”
Thirteen graduates make up the Alumni Advisory Council which strives to engage and strengthen alumni participation and create lifelong experiences for all UAFS alumni.
Originally from Oregon, Winterberg lived in different parts of the United States and overseas before his family settled in the Arkansas River Valley in 2000. UAFS provided academic programs he was interested in, a growing campus community, and the “ability to get involved on campus without getting lost in the crowd.” Wingerberg graduated with his bachelor’s degree in information technology in 2009 before receiving his MBA from Mississippi State University in 2014. While at UAFS, he “actively participated in campus life while learning how technology is used to solve problems and drive value for organizations.” As an involved student in the Order of Omega, Kappa Alpha Order chapter president, and vice president for the freshman honor society, Alpha Lambda Delta, he joins the Alumni Advisory Council with a background in serving the university. Winterberg looks forward to “giving back to the University that provided so many opportunities.”
