NEW OFFICES On Feb. 5, 2011, during halftime of the Blue Raiders’ home game vs. South Alabama, alumnus Ken “Coach” Shipp (‘50) made a commitment of $1 million to his alma mater through the MTSU Foundation. A significant portion of the funds will further enhance the endowed scholarship that Shipp established in 2009 to benefit students in Rutherford County who commit to enrolling at MTSU. The remainder of the gift was earmarked for renovation of the coaches’ office space in Murphy Center.
The project began in May 2011 with Shipp joining University President Dr. Sidney A. McPhee and head women’s basketball coach Rick Insell in knocking down the first wall. By late September, the Blue Raider coaching staff had moved into their new offices.
