Davies says his teenage daughter, who has a desire to be the Executive Director of the Kentucky Horse Park, earnestly told him that for her to achieve that goal she’d need to attend Murray State University for its pre-vet program and equine science program.

The report depicts university progress and/or lack thereof during Dunn’s six year tenure. Faculty Senate and Staff Congress members questioned board chairman Dr. Constantine Curris about many aspects of the report this week. <a href="http://wkms.org/post/msu-regents-voted-against-new-contract-dunn-based-individual-feelings-and-experiences">Curris stands by the work</a>. Dunn takes issue with a number of elements, “I think on the academic performance side, to some degree, there was a little bit of cherry picking that went on to make a worse case than what exists,” Dunn said.
