As part of The Promise Lives Campaign, the Ohio University Alumni Association (OUAA) hosted its largest alumni event for the Cincinnati and Dayton areas.
On Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2012, more than 225 alumni and friends met at the Great American Ballpark in downtown Cincinnati to celebrate together with Ohio University President Roderick J. McDavis and two special alumni guests: Fox Sports Broadcaster Thom Brennaman and WLWT-TV Sports Director Ken Broo.
Brennaman earned his Bachelor of Specialized Studies (BSS) from Ohio University's University College in Communication Studies and Political Science.

One of the highlights of the evening was when President Roderick J. McDavis conferred the degree of alumnus Thom Brennaman."Thom couldn't attend in June," said Romine. "So we took commencement to him. It was a special moment, indeed."
