Morehead State University Alumni Association Board President Jason Rainey and president-elect Dr. Jason Marion presented Dr. Wayne D. Andrews with a resolution granting him honorary life membership in MSU’s Alumni Association. The Alumni Association Board of Directors unanimously voted to pass the resolution in January 2017.
Officials of Morehead State University along with members of its Board of Regents, local and state legislators today (Tuesday, June 20) honored a distinguished Eagle alumnus, Rocky J. Adkins, who says, he is “an Eagle from the top of his head to the bottom of his feet.”
The group dedicated the new dining facility, “The Rocky Adkins Dining Commons.”
“I can’t think of anyone else that deserves this more than Rocky,” said Dr. Wayne D. Andrews, MSU president. “What he has given to and means to this University, is an outstanding legacy.”
