About the UWAA


In 2016, the UW Alumni Association hosted the first Golden Graduates Brunch, honoring Huskies who graduated 50 or more years ago. That same year, they also created the Golden Graduate Distinguished Alumnus Award (GGDAA), given to an alumnus who has demonstrated sustained, long-term and meaningful engagement with the UW. We are pleased to recognize these esteemed graduates who embody the best of the Husky spirit.

For 57 years, Frazer was the voice of the Husky Marching Band. Through rain, sleet, wind, snow and hot sun, he announced close to 2,000 songs, from “The Star Spangled Banner” to “Bow Down to Washington” and “Tequila.” In doing so, he become a legend, creating countless memories for generations of Husky fans who could not imagine game day at Husky Stadium without his golden voice.
