MSU Student Government Association rallies for higher education

RFHE-400-300.jpgOn Feb. 12, members of Morehead State University’s Student Government Association (SGA) traveled to Frankfort in order to let their voices be heard at the 2019 Rally for Higher Education. The rally, which was organized by the Kentucky Board of Student Body Presidents, had roughly 200 college students from eight public universities in attendance.

“The Rally for Higher Education is one of the most important events of the year,” said MSU SGA President Brandon Bryer. “Our rally is designed to advocate for the future of higher education from the students themselves and share with state legislators the importance of prioritizing higher education and treating it as an investment for the future, not as an expense of today.”  

The annual event assembles student government officials from across the Commonwealth and provides them with an opportunity to speak directly with state legislators to share their concerns and personal stories.  

Lori Ann Dobson, a junior social work major from Louisville, took to the podium to speak about her personal story and the impact that an education from Morehead State has had on her. Dobson said, “My intent was to let people know higher education has tremendous powers to change the trajectory of one’s life. I’ve battled my own share of adversity, and higher education turned that adversity into opportunity.”  

MSU involvement was at an all-time high, with 24 SGA members in attendance. This is the largest group that MSU’s SGA has ever sponsored to attend the rally.
