The Alumni Connection - Brad Uptmore - 1998
The path to personal and professional success is not always a straight line. No one knows that better than Brad Uptmore (’98). The now award-winning Public Information Officer for the Southlake Police Department said he wasn’t always so certain about how he could make his mark on the world.

Brad Uptmore is a South Lake Police Officer and this year, Uptmore and his team won the Public Relations Society of America’s (PRSA) Silver Anvil Award, which he described as “the Oscars of the public relations world.”

The award was presented in New York City, and it was for Most Effective Campaign.

College Wall of Honor
We need your help!
Dear Vanguard College Preparatory School Alumnus, Alumna and Alumni Parents, 

Help us fill the wall! 
We have a list of over 30 Vanguard Athletes
who played at the college level who we are contacting to feature on the
Collegiate Wall of Honor in the Swanson Gym.  

The inspirational Wall of Honor highlights alumni who are or who have participated in a college athletic program as a player or coach. This includes any division - NCAA Division I, II, III, NAIA, or Junior College. 

If you have played in one of these divisions, we'd like to highlight you!
This past year the Vanguard Athletic program had six players sign with college teams. This is a huge accomplishment for those players and we hon or those students. 

Please let Greta Knoll or Coach Will Curtis know if you have any questions.
