Titus J. Blackmon
<p">That is how Titus J. Blackmon, M Ed '88, describes his relationship with MU.
Blackmon, who served as President of the Mizzou Alumni Association (MAA) Board of Directors in 2007-08, says he fell in love with MU the first time he stepped on campus as a junior in High School.
Through the years the love-affair with Mizzou has grown. Early in his career with State Farm while working in cities in Kansas he often found himself the sole Tiger fan among Jayhawks. He says he would call up his sister, a Mizzou alumnus, for a little help: "We would get into school fight song battles. I would put my sister on speakerphone, and together we would take them on."
A member of the Mizzou Legacy Society since 2007, Blackmon's dedication shows through more than his extensive involvement with MAA. At the age of 46, Blackmon is creating a Mizzou legacy through a planned gift of insurance that will benefit MAA and the MU College of Education. Blackmon is married to Gloria and they have a daughter named Glenda.
