 Staff Spotlight



I'm Brian Blackburn, Associate Director in the Office of Financial Aid. I've been with UMO for six months. I've been In Financial Aid for 20 years and in education for my entire career. One of the reasons I stay in Financial Aid is I love being able to assist students in following their dreams. There is no better feeling than seeing a student go from Freshman to Graduating Senior and knowing they are equipped to go out and conquer the world.
