Mar 25, 2013

Murray State University’s Office of Multicultural Affairs has bestowed a retired Kentucky Council on Post-Secondary Education official with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Sherron Jackson of Frankfort served as CPE’s associate vice president for budget, policy and planning. He retired in December after 34 years of service. The award honors African Americans for their contributions to their communities and the Commonwealth.

CPE President Bob King praises Jackson’s leadership and equal opportunity advocacy, especially for minorities and disadvantaged students. Among Jackson’s accomplishments were Kentucky’s 2009 release from the Partnership Agreement with the Office of Civil Rights and a statewide policy on diversity for public colleges and universities.
