For Immediate Release
Campbellsville University Board of Trustees Chair Joseph Owens got some new shoes at the board
meeting today! Larry Gatlin of the Gatlin Brothers noticed Owens black/white oxford shoes at the
April 17 concert on campus and bought them for $1,000 and Owens left the concert in his socks.
Benji Kelly, vice president for development, found a replacement pair of shoes online, and
Dr. Michael V. Carter, CU president, made a presentation to Owens with some new shoes at the
board meeting in the Chowning Executive Dining Room. Owens said he’d take $5,000 for this pair!
