KSU President Featured On CNN

Posted on January 28, 2015

CNN recently aired a story about Kentucky State University President Raymond M. Burse whose story about giving $90,000 of his salary to help the university’s lowest-paid workers went viral over the summer.

“I don’t mind giving up some of what I have been able to obtain through life in order to be a small help to them in their own lives,” Burse told CNN.

It was also noted in the story that Burse did not stop after voluntarily taking a pay cut. He later surprised KSU football player Deshon Floyd, who graduated in December 2014, with the remaining $2,000 he needed for an internship in New Zealand. And, in December, Burse offered high school shooting victim Javaugntay Burroughs of Louisville a full scholarship.
