Remembering Dr. Clyde Kindell

April 21, 2020


A message from President McDaniel -

It is with a heavy heart that I am writing to let you know of the passing of MSC President Emeritus Dr. Clyde Kindell.  We received this news yesterday from his daughter Kay Neasbitt.  Dr. Kindell had been living in Denison, TX with Kay and her family for some time.

Dr. Kindell was a kind and compassionate leader who never lost his passion for Murray State College and its students. He was of sound mind and had an unbelievable memory.  His last email to me dated March 20 was full of questions and answers, inquiries and hopeful enthusiasm for the future of Murray State College and the world at large.

Dr. Kindell's physical presence will be missed, but he will forever remain in our hearts and in the history of Murray State College.  He was a mentor and a friend to me and to many others on our campus and beyond. He will be missed.

Please keep Dr. Kindell and his family in your hearts and prayers.
