Chamber Mix & Mingle with MSU

On Tuesday, August 29, 2017 the Morehead State University Alumni Association and the Floyd County Chamber of Commerce held a Mix and Mingle to welcome the new MSU president, Dr. Joseph “Jay” Morgan to the area.  The event was held at Bre’s Brickhouse in Prestonsburg and attended by alumni, community leaders and friends of MSU.

Dr. Morgan began his tenure as Morehead State University’s 14th president on July 1, 2017. A few of Dr. Morgan’s top priorities include stabilizing enrollment, improving MSU’s rankings and reputation, and educating the campus community on the new performance funding model. He also wants to put a heavy emphasis on connecting with the campus community, alumni and the region on a grassroots level and devoting more private fundraising efforts to establish more scholarships for students.

Morgan holds a B.S. degree in agriculture science and business, and an M.S. degree in agriculture science from Murray State University. He earned his Ph.D. degree at Oklahoma State University in agricultural education with a minor in management and significant course work in educational administration.
