Dear Members of the Kentucky State University Community,

Thanksgiving is a time for us to reflect on what we are thankful for. I want to extend my sincere gratitude to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of Kentucky State University (KSU). Your dedication and support have been immeasurable during these months at KSU.

This holiday allows us to focus on our blessings and the freedoms we enjoy in this country. It’s inspiring to see so many KSU community members and groups working to help make our community, our commonwealth, and our country a better place.

Last week, I enjoyed breaking bread and talking with some new and familiar faces during our “Thanks-for-giving” luncheon. I’m thankful for the outpouring of support from each and every one of you.  Kentucky State University is truly a special place.  One that we are all very proud of.  Our beautiful campus is filled with caring people who work diligently to make KSU shine. It is wonderful to be embraced by this University’s family.

I am grateful to you for your many contributions to Kentucky State University.  May your time with family and friends be joyful and blessed.

Happy Thanksgiving!


Aaron Thompson, Ph.D.
