MSU Athletics achieves 100 percent giving from full-time coaches and staff


MSU Athletics achieved 100 percent participation from full-time coaches and staff in donations toward the University’s annual Eagle Excellence Fund, demonstrating the true meaning of “One Town. One Team.” 

Supporting Morehead State’s athletic department by providing the best academic and athletic resources available, the Eagle Excellence Fund directly impacts the lives of both current and future student-athletes. 

“It is so gratifying to know that our athletics staff recognizes the value of supporting our student-athletes through their own personal and private financial commitment,” said Director of Athletics Brian Hutchinson (96). “Knowing that everyone on our staff participates in our annual giving program should be proof that an investment in athletics at MSU is important to our collective success.” 

Senior Associate Director of Athletics Brad Smith, who spearheaded Morehead State’s “One Town. One Team.” initiative, knows that success can only be obtained if each member of the MSU community believes in a common goal. 

“Our ‘One Town. One Team.’ message goes far beyond branding,” Smith said. “With all full-time Morehead State coaches and staff giving 100 percent financially, it means we believe in our students and the academic mission of the University and we want others to be a part of it.”
