Meet the Harlaxton Society Officers
President — Steven Bugg '86 of Newburgh, IN

My fondest memories of attending UE relate back to Harlaxton. During my sophomore year I experienced the Harlaxton magic and was able to meet relatives living in England, visit many unique places and develop lifelong friendships with students from UE and other colleges that I still have today. I also was blessed with being able to take my wife, Kathie, on a summer trip to Harlaxton a few years ago so she should could also experience the Harlaxton magic.
When the opportunity presented itself to serve on the Harlaxton Society Board it provided me with an opportunity to give back to Harlaxton and to UE. I jumped at the opportunity to support Harlaxton with my time and talents in order to make sure that the Harlaxton magic lives on. Harlaxton is a gem that the University of Evansville owns and I am so pleased to serve as the president of the Harlaxton Society Board of Directors in 2012. I look forward to working with a very energetic board to accomplish our goals and objectives to keep the Harlaxton tradition alive and well at UE for years to come!
Vice president — Karla Farmer Stouse '80 M'84 of Arcadia, IN

I have been an avid fan of Harlaxton since the first day I journeyed up that manor drive as a freshman. While visiting Harlaxton with my own students in 2010, a conversation with UE faculty/Harlaxton board member Linda Phillips raised the possibility of my joining the board. I jumped at the chance to give back to a place that has been so influential in my life, a home that continues to offer me many significant relationships and enlightening experiences. I am grateful for the opportunity to support other students who are making their own Harlaxton journeys, and I am eager to make a Harlaxton experience a reality for as many people as possible.
