Iget, Iger, whatever. Just get that check in the mail, Bob
Hey, Ithaca College, em, here's a tip: If you're going to mention one of your most famous and wealthiest alumni on your website and in your magazine you might want to spell his name correctly.
In researching our snark-filled take on the newly formed children's advocacy group TrueChild, which cited how its operations director Danny Baker was an award-winning graduate of Ithaca College, we decided to see if Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger, a slightly more well-known Ithaca alumnus had won any awards from his alma mater.
He hadn't, but a Bob Iget, who is apparently the chairman of Disney (Iger is only president and CEO, not chairman) received the "Edgar `Dusty' Bredbenner Jr. Distinguished Alumni Award." Way to go Mr. Iget. Actually, the chairman of Disney is John E. Pepper Jr. (Yale, '60).
In fairness to Ithaca, the `R' and the `T' are right next to each other on the keyboard.
