Kimberly Mullins-Blair Empowering the Dream

Kimberly Mullins Blair has been an Office Associate in the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders (SCSD) since 2002 and splits her gifts between the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders and the Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music through automatic payroll deduction.

In her own words, Kim describes why she is Empowering the Dream:

I know my contributions go to help projects around my department and it makes me feel in a small way, that I am helping grow and develop our School of Communication Sciences and Disorders.

I also give to the Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music. Since 1988, my father has been the announcer behind the U of M Band and has been dubbed the “Mighty Mouth of the South.” While growing up, I spent many hours around the Mighty Sound of the South and wished that more band scholarships were available so that more students could participate in the band. I hope that my giving, small as it is, can go to help bring scholarships opportunities to the band.

I use automatic payroll deduction because it is easy and painless. For years, I heard about giving back to the U of M, but when I thought about taking money out of my take home pay, I got kind of stingy. Taking it out before it ever hits the bank makes me miss it less... giving out of your paycheck can be a hard pill to swallow, particularly since we haven’t had raises in years. I can honestly say, however, that since I started donating to the U of M I have never wished that I had the money back. For a small amount, probably less than you will spend on lunch today, you can give back to the University and help fund projects for years to come.
