A familiar face and University of Cincinnati alumnus will be taking over Starbucks this summer.
Does the name Ullman sound familiar? It should to Cincinnatians.
In 2007, Ullman and his wife made a $10 million gift to the College of Design and in 2016 UC showed its gratitude by renaming the school. It's now the Myron E. Ullman, Jr. School of Design, which honors his father.
