By all accounts, there was something special about Richie McClerkin.
“I’ve been at Murray State for 24 years and Richie was one of a kind,” said Dr. Tony Brannon, dean of MSU’s Hutson School of Agriculture. “He was a very kindhearted student who just fit in with everyone—he liked everybody and everybody liked him.”
