PURPOSE: The purpose of this program is to recognize and honor African Americans and others for their contributions to their communities and the Commonwealth of Kentucky. This program is sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Affairs and supported by the Dr. Marvin D. Mills and Eunice Mills Leadership Endowment. This program provides an opportunity for our diversity scholars to interact, engage and network with professionals from the government, higher education, the community and corporate leaders across the Commonwealth.

    This program rotates between Murray, Paducah, and Hopkinsville to facilitate participation and involvement between these three communities. These three communities are selected because we have a major MSU presence in each of these communities, i.e. Hopkinsville Campus, Paducah Campus and Murray Campus. This program has been well attended by local, county and state officials.

    The President’s Initiative: Creating Community and Building Partnerships. These are the two components of the President's Initiative to which this program addresses. This program creates community by exposing our diversity scholars to key stake holders in the Paducah and Hopkinsville area. This program builds partnerships by providing opportunities for members of these communities who have been affected by MSU to assist us in our programmatic and development efforts. Also this program allows diversity scholars to become more active in these communities by making them more aware of the opportunities for service.
