Katherine and Brian Blankenburg

Katherine and Brian BlanketburgKatherine’s father was a Biology professor at UW-Stout. Katherine grew up going to the biology laboratory on Saturday mornings as her father prepared for the upcoming week’s classes. Katherine recalls her father discussing how so many students struggled to afford college, as he had as a student, and this subsequently resulted in him playing an instrumental role in starting the Stout University Foundation. “Brian and I established two scholarships and included UW-Stout in our estate plans as a way to honor my parents and help young people achieve their dream of obtaining a college degree.”
