Murray State University special (#2)
Renee Shaw speaks with two community leaders in Murray who are making a difference in the lives of minorities and low-income youth.
Murray graduate and staff member Doris Clark-Parham, director of Adventures in Math and Science at Murray, talks about the program’s success in encouraging minorities to pursue careers in math and science.
David Hudspeth, a Murray resident active in the Main Street youth program, talks about how the program provides activities and events for at-risk youth that encourage holistic health for mind, body and soul.
Finally, Renee interviews one of the first African-American professors at Murray State University, Dr. Marvin Millsnow. Now a Lexington resident, Millsnow discusses his work with the Centers for Disease Control, and how he still supports Murray by recruiting minorities to attend the Western Kentucky school. The school has recognized Dr. Millsnow’s efforts by naming a multicultural center in his honor on campus.
