Richard Myers #KStateStrong

K-State president Richard Myers encourages students, faculty and other community members to come together as members of the K-State family in the face of coronavirus in a Monday morning video.

K-State president Richard Myers on Monday spoke out against comments made by Riley County Commission chair Marvin Rodgriguez, who said last week that Italy’s Chinese population led to the country’s coronavirus crisis.

On the first day of a planned return to classes — albeit online and through other distance-learning methods — Myers said Monday morning that now is the time to come together as a K-State family.
