Greg Lange

Greg Lange was introduced to the grandeur of Juneau by his mother, Nancy (McDowell) Lange, who was born and raised in Juneau and has had family in the area since 1928. He graduated from Juneau-Douglas High School and UAJ (now UAS), a true home-town boy. While at UAJ, he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting (1984) while working for the Department of Public Safety as an Accounting Clerk.

Greg became a teacher in 1995, and has been in the education field ever since. He is very excited to be an active alum working directly with UAS’ newly-established advisory committee for the UA College of Education. He is currently a high school teacher in Edmonds, WA presenting “math renewal” to struggling and challenged freshman and sophomores.

Greg has also carried his Juneau and Eaglecrest-bred love of the mountains and outdoors into his professional work through programs designed to introduce his students to the snow. For 12 years, he worked with a ski bus company that coordinated and transported almost 600 Seattle middle and high school students to local ski areas on Friday nights. Finally, remaining a torch-bearer for the spirit of Juneau, Greg has been active in coordinating the Annual Seattle-based Juneau-Douglas Picnic each July since 2007, which is in its 77th year.

Serving on the UAS Alumni Association Board of Directors allows Greg to positively contribute to UAS, Juneau, and Southeast Alaska through active engagement with UAS staff and alumni and friends, who add so much vitality to the university and region.

Roberta Stell

In her own words: “As a retired educator and one who has a vested interest in the well-being of the University of Alaska Southeast, I feel I can contribute in many ways to the programming and activities of the Alumni Association. I remain knowledgeable and active in educational issues in Alaska and want to see the Alumni Association continue its strengths in numbers of members and in impact on current and future students at UAS. UAS serves students from the around the state and the alumni goals and activities should promote ways alumni from around the state can be involved and benefit from the activities the UAS Alumni & Friends Association.”
