Murray State University is dedicating two spaces on campus on Friday in the new Engineering and Physics Building. 

The ‘Dr. Gary W. Boggess Science Resource Center’ will house computer stations, study areas and a conference room. Boggess served as the dean of MSU’s College of Science for more than 20 years. His work also led to the creation of the Science Resource Center in the Blackburn Science Building.

A two-story, brick walkway connecting the new building to Jones Hall will be named the ‘Timothy D. Jones Gateway.’ The Murray native is son of Dr. Jesse D. Jones who was recently named an MSU Distinguished Alumni for his contributions to the university and the chemistry and pharmaceuticals industries. Timothy Jones has a career with Valero Energy in New Orleans.

Both namings are made through donations from Dr. Jesse D. Jones.

The dedication is at 3 p.m.
