Murray State University officials say “everything is moving along as planned” as students move into the residential colleges this week ahead of the next academic year. Vice President of University Advancement Adrienne King led local media around the residential area on Wednesday and described progress made on rebuilding efforts following an incident in June in which a blast from a suspected gas leak destroyed New Richmond College and damaged nearby buildings.
With classes already underway, Murray State University President Bob Davies stopped by the WKMS studios to give an update on leadership staffing changes that occurred over the summer as well as a look forward at future and current construction projects.
Following a national search, Murray State University has named its new Vice President of Marketing and Outreach. Dr. Adrienne King will begin her duties on September 1, pending approval of the board of regents.
