Belinda Tate's rise to executive director of the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts even surprises herself. "I never expected to have a career in the arts," she tells WMUK's Earlene McMichael on WestSouthwest today, her two-year anniversary at the KIA. "While an undergraduate at Yale, I was a math major -- applied math with a concentration in operations research." Then she got a job in the Finance Department at the Yale Center for British Art in her sophomore year. What happened next shows the power of mentors, of which she'd had several while in college.
