University names new Greek Life coordinator

Kendall Harris, a Murray State graduate student, was named the new Greek Life coordinator by the Office of Student Affairs on Monday.

Harris was extended a one-year contract to fill the position temporarily and the position will be advertised again during the 2014-15 academic year. Don Robertson, vice president of Student Affairs, and Re’Nita Avery-Meriwether, director of student life and the Curris Center, sent a news release to various Greek constituencies Monday morning.

“After conducting two national searches, the search committee was not satisfied with the candidates that were interviewed and we decided not to offer the position to any of these candidates,” the release said.

Harris graduated from Lane College with a degree in mass communications. While at Murray State, Harris worked as a graduate assistant in the Greek Life and Leadership Program office and as an office assistant in the Curris Center.

Harris served as a co-adviser to the National Pan-Hellenic Council, and is a member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. and Phi Mu Alpha.

“We are excited to have Kendall at Murray State University in the coordinator position and we are confident he will provide outstanding leadership and direction for our Greek Life,” the release said.

Avery-Meriwether will continue to assist with Greek Life programs until another search is complete.
