Jacob Sobieck

BEMIDJI—Jake Sobieck has joined the BSU Alumni & Foundation as director of annual giving for Beaver Athletics.

Sobieck will oversee all annual giving activities for Beaver Athletics, coordinate the foundation's Beaver Pride club and serve as a liaison to the B-Club — a sport-specific alumni program for former Beaver student-athletes. He will also coordinate athletics fundraising events such as the bi-annual Green and White Dinner and Auction.

Before joining the foundation, Sobieck spent nearly two years as intramural coordinator at BSU, where he managed a staff of 15-20 employees. He also worked as a public relations and marketing assistant for BSU's Gillett Wellness Center.

Sobieck earned both his bachelor's and master's degrees at Bemidji State. He has a bachelor of arts in psychology with a coaching certificate and a master of arts in teaching.

Sobieck began on June 15. He succeeds Adrian Dunn, who held the position since 2015. In May, Dunn was promoted to gift officer with BSU Alumni & Foundation.
