(Kimball) Joseph with a UIU Alumni Award for Service to Country.
Ann Joseph, aka Angie, graduated from Upper Iowa University in 1982 with a degree in Business Administration and Political Science. She was in the ROTC Program at Upper Iowa and decided that the military would be her way to travel the world and get out of her small hometown of Fayette, Iowa. She had no idea that she would make the military her career. Angie entered the Army in 1982 and has been in the military ever since. In those 30 years she has been with the force, Angie has proven her leadership abilities by commanding her own Battalion and having the respect of her troops despite the fact that she is a female. In July of 2004 Angie was promoted to Colonel, which is a huge accomplishment in the military community, and an even bigger accomplishment for a female in the military. Angie has been a role model to the young men and women she has trained over the years, and she is also a role model to her two daughters. Although it has been almost 30 years since Angie graduated from Upper Iowa University, she continues to come back to the University and present her mother's scholarship award. She has also spoken during women's leadership week about having a successful career in a predominately male workforce.
