It’s an honor to own a San Angelo-based business and give back to the university who helped me grow into an entrepreneur. Knowing I can directly influence the next generation of business-owners is an incredible feeling.”</p> <p class="blockquote-author"><strong>Blake Vincent</strong>, Class of 1996</p> </blockquote>
