@Tilka - You may want to check your facts. I'm not sure how raising $85
million in private and non-state funds is leaving SUU in a financial mess. On
top of all his great accomplishments at SUU, President Benson has been a
remarkably fiscally responsible leader. Eastern Kentucky is getting an
incredible leader and a great man!
I'm happy for him but sad as well. We lose a great man and Eastern
Kentucky gets him. Good luck in the future President Benson.
Congrats to Mike Benson, lets hope the next President can help the University
recover from the financial mess he left it in.
Hope SUU will be able to select an equally capable president as Dr. Michael
Benson. Provost Bradley Cook comes to mind.
