I Dear Dr. Howard:
On September 15, 1977, my administrative responsibility as vice president of
Murray State University was passed to my successor Dr. Richard C. Gray. Now that this
administrative change has occurred it is appropriate that I resign as treasurer of the
Board of Regents.
Please accept this letter as my resignation as treasurer of the Board of Regents
effective October 1, 1977. It has been a genuine joy and honor to work with you and
the other fine members of the Board during my 9% years as Vice President for Adminis-
tration and Finance.
I look forward with keen anticipation to my new responsibility as Executive
Director of the Murray State University Foundation. I hope to render effective service
to this great institution through this new position.
My sincere thanks to you for the excellent leadership you are giving as the
Chairman of the Board of Regents. The future of Murray State University is in good
hands and its star will continue to glow brighter.
