The Murray State University Hopkinsville Regional Campus KEA-SP (Kentucky Education Association-Student Program) Organization was recently recognized for several state awards in Bowling Green, Ky. Awards included Outstanding Outreach Program, Outstanding Newsletter, Outstanding Underclassman and Outstanding Local Advisor.

The MSU Hopkinsville KEA-SP was awarded for the Rodeo Reading Round Up they held as part of the group’s outreach initiative. More than 120 kindergarten students attended the event at the Hopkinsville campus for a day of music, games, reading, dance, and arts and crafts.

Outstanding Underclassman Jackie Roeder was instrumental in writing grants for the local group as well as being an integral part in the KEA student program and outreach in Hopkinsville.

MSU Hopkinsville KEA outreach projects for the 2012-13 school year include Book Character Day and Storytelling at Martin Luther King Elementary School, Read Across America CAT-A-VAN tour, the donation of over 400 books to kindergarten through second grade students at MLK Elementary, and volunteering at the Christian County Cares Festival of Trees, local Salvation Army and at the Rotary Club of Hopkinsville annual auction.

“Murray State is very proud of the outreach efforts of the KEA-SP Organization at MSU-Hopkinsville Regional Campus and the awards they have won,” said Dr. Brian Van Horn, dean of Center for Continuing Education and Academic Outreach. “This group, under the leadership of Beverly Fort, our MSU-Hopkinsville education coordinator, exemplifies the quality of education that students receive at MSU.”
