Jerry Gore African-American Heritage Scholarship
Jerry Gore African-American Heritage Scholarship Fund
The Jerry Gore African-American Heritage Scholarship Fund has been established in recognition of someone near and dear to the African American Alumni Group -- the late Dr. Jerry Gore. A graduate of Morehead State University, and an employee for 27 years, Dr. Gore had a profound impact in promoting African American heritage and paving the way for significant change at MSU.
The African American Alumni group rallied together to raise over $5,000 to support student scholarships in 2013. These scholarship contributions, combined with future contributions, will support students for years to come. Meeting the fundraising goal of $20,000 will move this scholarship fund to the endowment level -- meaning this fund will remain in place permanently, awarding scholarships year after year.
