Towers Magazine - Putting Others First

Towers Magazine - Putting Others First

Editor's Note: This and other stories appear in the Fall 2016 edition of Towers Magazine, available online now.

“My work aligns with my core values.”

Honesty and kindness make Robin Rentfrow Campbell ’02 the perfect champion for the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption as its senior director of corporate relations. She considers herself a conduit for the foundation’s mission and all for which its namesake stood.

Campbell worked closely with Dave Thomas and the Wendy’s executive team before and after attending Otterbein to earn her bachelor’s degree as an adult.

“I loved Mr. Thomas’ belief in the underdog. Along the way, I’ve learned it has to be about putting others first,” said Campbell, who is passionate about reminding others that every child deserves a loving home and a safe, permanent family.

“I remember this little guy waiting to be adopted; he just wanted someone who would hold his hand so he could go trick-or-treating,” she said.

She keeps the photo of that child’s first Halloween with his adopted family where they’re all dressed as superheroes as a reminder.

“My work means a little boy or girl gets the best gift of all: a family.”
