Thursday, August 07, 2014

Bryan College Development Director Blake Hudson is leaving to take a position with UTK.

President Stephen Livesay told faculty and staff:

Congratulations and special thanks to Blake Hudson as he prepares to begin a new opportunity on August 18!  I deeply appreciate his love for our Lord and work with Bryan College over the past five plus years.  Among his many accomplishments, he facilitated two successful Presidential Briefings, greatly expanded our Bryan Opportunity Program Dinners into our largest fund raising scholarship event, coordinated the beginning of the President’s Roundtable, expanded our planned giving and estate planning program, developed strategic donors for the College, developed and expanded Career Services, restructured and streamlined the Advancement Department and enhanced the overall footprint of Bryan.  We look forward to Blake’s future success and will cheer him on from Bryan College."

Mr. Hudson said, "It has been an honor to serve as the Vice President of Advancement at Bryan College.  I believe good days are ahead for the college, but it is time for me to move on to another opportunity.  I have accepted the position of Director of Advancement–College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Tennessee with a start date of August 18th.  The analogy of a relay race comes to my mind as I leave Bryan College. I have run a small leg of the race and now it is time for me to handoff the baton to someone else.  I will continue to cheer for the success of Bryan College."
