HENDERSON, Ky. (WEHT) – Murray State University’s President Bob Jackson was in Henderson speaking to the rotary club.

Jackson talked about the special programs the university is implementing.

One of those is Murray State’s new Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders, which will open next week.

Jackson also travels the Commonwealth encouraging alumni to stay involved with their Alma Mater.

And most of the time, he is trying to recruit students and telling of the opportunities the school offers.

“The president of any institution needs to be seen and needs to be out and needs to be spreading the good word of their institution. Murray State University that’s my alma mater, and I’m very, very proud of it.”

Jackson has been focusing on recruitment efforts since taking over the full-time president position in early March.

He says he wants students to know about Murray State and its nationally recognized programs.
