MSU closed, event planned for MLK Day

Morehead State will be closed Monday, Jan. 16, in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Administrative offices will be closed, and classes will not meet. However, the University will host a special event to commemorate Dr. King's legacy.

Dr. William Turner will speak at 6 p.m. on the third floor of the Adron Doran University Center (ADUC). The lecture is free and open to the public.

A native of Harlan County, Turner has spent his professional career studying and supporting marginalized groups. He is best known in academia for his research on African American communities in Appalachia. He has held positions at Winston-Salem University, Kentucky State University, the University of Kentucky and Berea College. At the time of his retirement in 2017, Turner was a research scientist leader at the Prairie View A&M University College of Agriculture and Human Sciences, where he led the collection and analysis of data on underserved, economically insecure Texans.
