The Distinguished Alumni Achievement Award from the University of Iowa will go to my dearest friend and “Queen of the Lot” co-star Tanna Frederick next year, for an amazing life of achievement post her college years. She beat out Ashton Kutcher and other alumni for the honor. “Thanks, Tommy, I am so appreciative of this. I loved my years in Iowa and I am proud to say that I attended the University of Iowa, and am still grateful for the confidence and the education they instilled in me. I truly believe it’s helped me in my life thus far, and I hope to continue making them as proud as I am of the school,” said Frederick.
This award is granted to University of Iowa graduates or former students for significant accomplishments in business or professional life or for distinguished human service to their community, state, or nation. What’s next for Frederick? There is much chatter in Tinseltown about her budding film career, and she’s still wowing audiences in “Sylvia,” directed by the legendary Gary Imhoff at the famed Edgemar Theatre for the Arts in Santa Monica.
Look for more news soon on the beautiful actress and environmental activist.
