Sebo, a 1958 graduate of BGSU, began his one-year term as chairman at the University's board meeting Friday. Governor Robert Taft appointed him to the BGSU board in 2002.

He also provided the lead gift for construction of the Sebo Athletic Center named in his honor. In addition, he established the Bob Sebo Football Scholarship, the Bob Sebo Endowed Scholarship in Jazz Studies and the Bob Sebo Lecture Series in Entrepreneurship in the College of Business Administration.
