My name is Montanna Blanchard and I am currently a senior at Auburn University graduating in May 2020 with my degree in Hospitality Management with an Event Option. My passion for events started when I was eighteen and worked a charity gala called Runway to Hope. I was fortunate to continue working with the Runway to Hope event coordinator on many other opportunities. That experience and my current position as a Banquet Captain at The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center have helped me grow into the professional I am today. Throughout my time here at Auburn University I have had the privilege to earn my Level One Master Sommelier, work the 2019 Master’s Golf Tournament, tour Northern California and go to Washington D.C. to tour Susan Gage Caterers. These opportunities would not be possible without the money that is raised at the Hospitality Gala. These experiences are unlike any other and is what makes Auburn’s Hospitality Program unique. I am thrilled to be a part of the 2020 Gala Class and cannot wait to see how it all comes together in April.
