The JA Alumni Board successfully held their 20th Annual Homecoming Tailgate Party.  This year’s tailgate took place on Saturday, October 18th, 2014 beginning at 12:30pm before the UofL Cardinals played the North Carolina State Wolfpack and won 30-18!

Our “Distinguished Justice Chefs”, Danny Glidewell and Terry Keeling grilled hotdogs, bratwurst, hamburgers and chicken for an ALL YOU CAN EAT menu whch included sweet potatoes, greens, mac & cheese from the local restaurant "Food 4 the Soul" and all the condiments, snacks, deserts and chips.

The weather was cool, the attendance was great, the atmosphere was festive, the food was excellent and abundant.  The door prizes were plentiful, thanks to local supporters of the program like KingFish Restaurants, The Car Butler car wash, etal.  The new Dean of A&S, Dr. Kimberly Kempf-Leonard joined us before the game.
