MSU to Award Honorary Doctorate to Taylor Brown

Note from Daughter Courtney Brown Kibblewhite – “We are sincerely grateful to everyone who wrote letters and supported our Dad’s nomination. It sure means a great deal. Especially since Colter and I came back to our business, we have seen Dad receive all kind of awards of course, but I do have to say there is something particular about this one. I don’t think it has a bit to do with the ‘Doctor’ title, though he loves to tease us about it! After a healthy family, I suppose what else could one ask for in life besides the opportunity and ability to give back to the people and places for which you care so deeply? Some have the opportunity, some have the ability, but few act. Thank you, Dad for continuing to step up. I know you don’t mind at all who gets the credit, but I thank God for the joy we feel in seeing credit given where credit is due.”
