LEXINGTON, Ky. (July 3, 2014) — A free three-minute film detailing the connection Transylvania University has with Lexington will air at 11 a.m. on July 5 at the Kentucky Theatre in downtown Lexington. The film, which was produced by Lexington marketing firm Bullhorn Creative, features several community members talking about the various ways Transylvania contributes to the cultural, intellectual, and economic vibrancy of the city.
“We collaborated with community stakeholders to create a positive message that gives the entire city ownership in making the university’s strategic plan, Transylvania 2020, a success,” said Billy Van Pelt, co-chair of the board’s Friends Relations Committee. “The video will be used to garner support and engagement from individuals across the country and to encourage connections with both Transylvania and Lexington.”
Marcia Cone, also a co-chair of the committee, said, “Transylvania University has been an integral part of the history of Lexington—and the state of Kentucky—and has influenced the history of our nation. It has remained a stable core of our inner city neighborhood for over two hundred years and continues to expand its footprint and economic impact.”
