Our family members are very fortunate to have benefited from generations of knowledgeable and devoted University of Iowa professors who inspired their students to think creatively, adapt quickly, and embrace emerging ideas and technologies to support the health and wellbeing of others. On behalf of the past and present proud Hawkeyes of our family, we are humbled and honored to receive the University of Iowa Family Spirit Award."

The Bogue Family will be formally recognized as the 2021 recipients this fall.
