OHIO Today writes about Ohio University alumnus Frank Zammataro in a story headlined “Alumnus honored for decades of mentorship inspired by Alden, Rollins and Ohio Fellows.”

In October, Zammataro received the first-ever Select Leaders Robert D. Walter Leadership Legacy Award from the Ohio University Business Fellows.

Frank Zammataro, BS ’63, spent more than seven years at Ohio University, eventually earning a degree in biological sciences. But it was a gig he landed on campus in 1962 as the University was welcoming its 15th president that steered Zammataro to a successful career in business and inspired him to dedicate the past 25 years to serving the Ohio University students of today.

“When I look back at my life, every time it seemed like I was hitting a wall somewhere, somebody would step up and turn me around and turn me in a different direction,” Zammataro said.

When Zammataro was at OHIO, those somebodies were President Emeritus Vernon R. Alden and one of Alden’s former Harvard University colleagues, J. Leslie Rollins.
