Morehead State University Receives $1 Million For Theater Program

Morehead State University in Morehead, Kentucky, has received a $1 million grant from the W. Paul and Lucille Caudill Little Foundation to endow a faculty chair in theater and expand one of its theater programs.

In addition to endowing the chair, the funds will support the university's Theater in the Schools program, which performs university productions in Appalachian elementary and secondary schools. The program also brings students to the campus for summer programs.

"I think it's going to make available a lot of opportunities that otherwise might not be there," said Barbara Ender, MSU vice president for development and CEO of the university foundation.
