Athletics Hall of Fame

Sue Engel

Sue Engel has been named the 2014 John S. Glas Honorary Letter Winner. The John S. Glas Honorary Letter Winner Award was created in 2011 and recognizes an individual or individuals who were not student-athletes at BSU, but who have had a major impact on BSU athletics, much like the late John Glas did during his 34-year tenure at BSU. This included his roles as Vice President for Finance and briefly as acting President. His strong support of athletics earned him the honor of having the Fieldhouse named after him upon his retirement in 1975. Currently serving as the Sales and Marketing Director at First National Bank in Bemidji, Engel is a well-respected member of the community and has been very active within the Bemidji State community. A member of Beaver Pride from its inception, she is also the chair of the Gift Procurement Committee for the Green and White Auction and was on the First National Bank Women’s Golf Tournament committee for many years. Engel is an avid fan and supporter of all BSU athletic programs which, leads to her and her husband, Steve, attending not only many BSU home events, but also traveling to cheer on the Beavers at many road destinations.
