The University recently launched a new ad campaign highlighting the impact of alumni in the Toledo community and the career success they have achieved with their UT degrees.

The campaign is featured on 14 billboards throughout Toledo and in print and digital ads. The ads include an array of graduates from varied generations and academic backgrounds. The featured alumni include:

This billboard at Monroe Street and Douglas Road is one of 14 in the area that are part of UT’s new ad campaign focusing on local alumni and their success stories.

• Bob Savage, co-founder of Savage & Associates;

• Robin Whitney, vice president of real estate and construction for ProMedica;

• Prakash Karamchandani and HoChan Jang, co-owners of Balance Pan-Asian Grille and Bubble Tea;

• Dr. Romules Durant, superintendent of Toledo Public Schools; and

• McKenzie Kuehnlein, reporter for 13 ABC.

The ads direct to utoledo.edu/alumni with more information about the featured participants and their UT experiences.

“We have so many success stories at UT and are proud of our graduates’ accomplishments,” said Barbara Owens, UT associate vice president for marketing and communications. “We want to raise awareness of how these alumni are present and contributing to the Toledo region, and also remind area high school students about the opportunities for success at UT.”

The campaign will run through March.
