U-M associate director of choirs and associate professor of conducting Eugene Rogers, conductor Joel Thompson, and audio recordist David Lau also won awards for the documentary.
Last night UM-Dearborn celebrated the public announcement of our $50 million Victors for UM-Dearborn campaign. Hundreds of people were on campus for a VIP dinner, the public announcement and many other related alumni/campaign events. The event was a great success. Much of this success is attributed to Michigan Creative. Your team never said no, never compromised Michigan quality or excellence and really helped my team move these projects forward in ways we never could have imagined. We cannot thank you enough for your team’s hard and great work!
We have received so many positive comments about Legacy, our case statement, the video, and I am sure the website in the days to come (it went live late yesterday). Thanks again for everything – you all really made UM-Dearborn (and my team) look good last night!
