How We're Building Huntsman

Gary, ‘63, and Karen, ‘65, Black

Gary and Karen BlackUSU Alumni of the Year, 2009
Huntsman School of Business Distinguished Executive Alumnus, 2002

Karen and I met while crossing the Quad at USU, and our experience at Utah State shaped our lives. All four of our children are Aggies, and we now have grandchildren attending Utah State. We are proud to be Aggies, and grateful to be associated with the university. The various businesses we have been associated with over the years have benefitted greatly from the education we received at Utah State.

Karen and I provide a scholarship to business students because we want to provide the same types of opportunities and experiences we had at Utah State. I have served on the National Advisory Board of the Huntsman School since 2008, and have seen the tremendous growth of the school during that time. Karen and I are so excited by the opportunities the school provides to young people.

We are Building Huntsman because we are so grateful for Utah State. You too can Build Huntsman. It’s as easy as visiting campus, speaking in classes, mentoring students, hiring Aggies, and if you’re like us, encouraging your grandkids to choose USU.

Every one of us has the power to help

Build Huntsman and propel us forward in our journey to the top-tier. It’s as simple as:

  • Coming to campus
  • Speaking in a class
  • Mentoring students
  • Hiring our students
  • Making a gift
