Winners Chosen for the 2015 Joe Metzger Award for Innovation

The Toledo Walleye and Hobsons have been named the recipients of the inaugural Joe Metzger Award for Innovation.

This award was established by the Division of External Affairs at the University of Toledo to honor a man who had innovation in his blood. It will be given annually to individuals or teams who bring an innovative spirit to their plans

The Walleye were chosen for their work on WinterFest, presented by ProMedica. And Hobsons, an education company, was selected for their three-day higher education seminar, Hobsons University.

John Metzger and Todd Beringer represented Metzgers on the selection committee, and Beringer said these organizations were selected because their projects showcased “ingenuity, partnership, and a vision for the future.”

The Walleye and Hobsons were presented with their awards at the fifth annual Tie One On event presented by the University of Toledo. Since 2010, Tie One On has helped raise more than $100,000 to increase prostate cancer awareness, $35,000 of which was raised at this year’s event.
