Carol Hillsman Sagers ’79 MEDIA, founder and consultant of CHS Marketing Consultants, has been named a 2012 Chicago Illini of Year by the University of Illinois Alumni Association. The award, cosponsored by the UIAA and the Chicago Illini Club, was created in 1997 to recognize the accomplishments of Chicago-area graduates of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Three distinguished alumni who live and work in Chicago or one of its suburbs are honored each year, and the selection is based primarily on overall career achievement, positive impact on the Chicago community, and demonstrated interest in the University.
