Here's a piece of our UFAF history:  In 1968, Mr. Norris met Bruce Lee for the first time. He later co-starred in "The Return of the Dragon," which was his first significant role.
Submitted by Diane Huntemann, UFAF Historian
After 23 years of service to UFAF (7 in student member services and 16 as UFAF’s Director of Operations & Development), Mr. Steve Nelson has chosen to pursue another professional opportunity for which he feels the same kind of passion as he has felt while serving UFAF. Effective Jan. 1, Mr. Nelson will resign his position as UFAF’s Director of Operations & Development to pursue a blossoming career in baseball with the National Pitching Association. He will remain an active member of UFAF, and will remain a member of the UFAF Board of Directors.
UFAF is pleased to announce that effective Jan. 1, 2017 Mrs. Tara Cox will assume the role of UFAF’s Director of Operations & Development. Mrs. Cox, a longtime member of the UFAF Board of Directors, is already heavily involved in UFAF’s development efforts, as well as in staging the annual ITC, and is extremely qualified to both carry on, and to lead completely new development efforts that will help UFAF to achieve its tremendous potential for doing good in the lives of individuals and in the world.
Please join us in wishing both Mr. Nelson and Mrs. Cox well in their new endeavors!
