Scholarship Formally Established

November 29, 2017

Thanks to the support of MSU alumni and friends, the Morehead State University Foundation has formally announced the establishment of the Jerry Gore African-American Heritage Scholarship. The scholarship is a memorial recognition for MSU alumnus, Jerry Gore (76) and was established by members of the African American Alumni Affinity Group. 

Gore was a three-time MSU graduate who served the University in a variety of positions for 27 years before retiring as the Minority Student Affairs Director. 

Nearly 150 alumni came together to make contributions totaling over $32,000 to endow the scholarship. The endowment will be managed by the MSU Foundation and investment income will be utilized to award a scholarship to an MSU student on an annual basis. 

Thank you to all those who contributed to the project!
