College Alumna Featured in Halftime Spot

[Dr. Rosemary LoGiudice with horse]In June 30 Dr. Rosemary LoGiudice, a 1981 graduate of the College, was filmed for this year’s national halftime spot to be aired on ABC, ESPN, and CBS during Illini football and basketball games. She was one of about a dozen alumni selected for the spots, which feature alumni at various locations on campus saying such things as “This is where I learned to teach” and “This is where I learned to lead.”

Dr. LoGiudice was filmed in the College’s nuclear scintigraphy suite with Attila, one of the Trakehner horses that were part of the Kosterka estate gift to the College. Her line was “This is where I learned to heal.”

In the final segment of the spot, all the alumni say, “This is where I learned to live.”

After many years owning a very successful mostly equine practice in Manhattan, Ill., Dr. LoGuidice took a position as assistant director for Membership and Field Services and SAVMA Advisor at the American Veterinary Medical Association about 3 years ago. She flew her plane to Urbana for the shoot and wowed the production crew with her professional and enthusiastic delivery. Be sure to watch for her and Attila during the games later this year. Or check out the campus Web site where it can be viewed as streaming video.
