BSU grad wins alumni award

BEMIDJI—BSU alumnus Brent Glass received Students United's 2016 Andrea Ruesch Outstanding Alumni Award during the organization's November Delegates Luncheon on Saturday in Minneapolis.

Glass is being recognized for his achievements as a former Students United executive director who is credited with establishing the group's initial student leadership scholarship. He later pursued professional student services roles at both the college and university levels, where he worked with student populations to increase student success and to encourage involvement in the campus and state student communities.

Glass is currently the system director and operations manager in the Academic and Student Affairs Division at the Minnesota State system office in St. Paul. He earned his bachelor's degree at BSU and his master's degree at St. Cloud State University. He is currently pursuing a doctorate in higher education administration at St. Cloud State.

The Students United Outstanding Alumni Award was established in 2012 to honor the memory of Minnesota State University, Moorhead, graduate Andrea Ruesch, who passed away in 2009.
