Where Did You Get Your Start?
Over the course of his career, Blaine Anderson has called many places home, including Memphis, Vancouver, Salt Lake City, Louisville and Houston, to name a few. But he's never forgotten the start he received as a student at St. Cloud State University.
"I was a political science and business marketing major, a member of the student senate for three years, and on the student finance committee," Blaine says.
"I have always been a supporter of the athletics program," he adds. "As a student, I got to be on an athletics search committee. It was fun interacting with people I had seen on TV like professional sports players and business leaders.
"I have such fond memories of these times and still stay in contact with people I met."
Leaving a Legacy
Blaine currently serves as vice president of sales and revenue management at Schulte Hospitality Group, but he made it a priority from the very start of his career to think about leaving a legacy at St. Cloud State.
"I think it starts with your upbringing," Blaine says. "My parents are very involved in their community and very big on giving back."
The year after Blaine graduated, he designated the St. Cloud State University Foundation as a beneficiary of his estate.
"I feel like I gained a lot from the education I received," Blaine says. "It's a good idea for all St. Cloud alums to consider where they got their start in life and consider making it a habit to write an annual check and potentially leave a legacy through a planned gift. It's the right thing to do."
