A benefit for Trojan Athletics, SpectacUALR is the largest annual fundraiser at UALR, raising more than $750,000 for UALR student-athletes in the first four years of the event.
The 2013 SpectacUALR honoree is Dr. John Wilson, the 1995 recipient of the UALR Alumni Association Distinguished Alumnus Award for Excellence. Dr. Wilson also received the 2009 Asklepion Award from the Arkansas Medical Society, given to one physician annually that embodies the values of the medical profession through leadership, service, excellence, integrity and ethical behavior, and enriches patients, colleagues and the community through dedicated medical practice. Dr. Wilson spent 38 years at OrthoArkansas until his retirement in 2007. Two years ago, he missed treating patients and began working again at UAMS in orthopedic triage.
Sponsorship opportunities are also available for SpectacUALR 2013 by contacting Andrea Angel at 501.569.3393 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
