Application of Dr. Joseph Murray Hayse for Promotion any Tenure (PR 3A) President Wethington said that PR 3A was an action item concerning the application of Dr. Joseph Murray Hayse for promotion and tenure. He reminded the members of the background information recently mailed to them about the application. He reported that this action item was necessary as a result of court actions over the years. He then asked Governor Breathitt to handle PR 3A. Governor Breathitt said that the members had an opportunity to review the material and asked for a motion to either approve or disapprove the application of Dr. Hayse for promotion and tenure. Mr. Wilcoxson moved that the Board disapprove Dr. Hayse's application for promotion to the rank of Associate Professor with tenure. Mr. Sturgill seconded the motion and it carried.
