Alumni Association Ram Award

Alan Zartarian ’69, seen here with his wife, Marilyn ’70, has sat on just about every major board URI has to offer. He is among the select few to have attended all six NCAA tournament victories by the men’s basketball team. For these reasons and more, Zartarian has been honored with the URI Alumni Association’s Ram Award. The first recipient since 2005, he was honored during the Feb. 19th men’s basketball game against UMass. “I have a passion for URI,” Zartarian said. “It started out with athletics, particularly football and basket-ball. Over the years, it has grown into support across the board.”
