Governor's Scholars Program

Dear Concerned Parent or Guardian,


   In regard to an event earlier today on the Murray State University campus, all participants in Adventures in Math and Science (AIMS), Governor Scholars Program (GSP) and Commonwealth Honors Academy (CHA) have been accounted for and relocated.  As you may be aware, at 4:53 p.m. this afternoon, an explosion occurred in New Richmond Hall.  The cause of the explosion is believed to be a gas leak.  Individuals are being asked to stay out of the affected area until emergency officials have given the all clear.  Any on-campus visitors within the affected area are being relocated.  Counseling services will be provided as needed.

  Any concerned parent or guardian may reach the University at 270-809-4142.  All other persons should monitor the website for further updates.


Bob Davies, President
