Blake Bixler is a May 2018 graduate of Truman State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science with a minor in political communication. Blake was born in Lee's Summit, MO and after initially enrolling at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, Blake transferred to Truman State University in Kirksville. While his classes and his time with the university's speech and debate team challenged him to think critically, he credits Truman for creating a sense of belonging. Blake's main activity outside of class was being a member of Truman's traveling Ultimate Frisbee team in which he served several executive positions (Public Relations, Vice-President, Risk Manager, and Coach). His time with the team helped him understand the importance of challenging yourself while being a role model to others. He hopes to help students find a similar sense of belonging in his role with MCAC."
