As a proud graduate of EKU and a retired member of the staff, I wish to join others who have commended the Board of Regents for their choice of an interim president. I had the pleasure of working with and for Doug Whitlock for more than 20 years and feel strongly that the Board could not have chosen a person who loves the University more deeply.

He is a man of integrity and he will serve in this important capacity with dignity.

He has the University’s best interest at heart and, perhaps, more importantly, he has the best interest of the students at heart.

He truly wants every student who walks on that campus to succeed. I can speak from experience because I venture to say I would not have three college degrees today without his encouragement, counsel and support.

He believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. My hat is off to you Mr. President.

Thank you for all you did to enhance my life. I shall be forever grateful.
