MSU changes gun policy

Dec. 7, 2012 —     Morehead State University’s Board of Regents agreed Thursday to change the institution’s weapons policy to comply with a ruling of the Kentucky Supreme Court.

    The revised policy allows someone with a concealed carry permit to bring a weapon onto MSU property if it is stored in a container that is part of the original equipment of a vehicle, such as a trunk or glove compartment.

    The policy change is expected to comply with the high court’s decision stemming from a case at the University of Kentucky.

    In other business, the Regents appointed a new treasurer. Beth Patrick, chief financial officer and vice president for administration, succeeds Mike Walters, who retired last month. Patrick recently returned to MSU after a year on the executive staff at UK.

    The board also approved awarding of an honorary doctoral degree to Dr. George Kerr, now of Morehead. Dr. Kerr is a nationally-recognized physicist and a 1962 MSU graduate..

    Also given approval was the naming of the Bill and Regina Mack Student-Athlete Technology and Learning Lab within the EAGLE Center. Mack, a former faculty member and coach, and his wife, Regina, were recognized for longtime support of MSU.

    The board approved the purchase of the former Olgie Gilliam residence on Lee Avenue. Future use of the property has not been determined.
