Residential College Leadership

Faculty Spotlight
Mr. John Fannin
If you’ve ever gone to a Murray State football game, you have likely listened to the incredible performances of our Racer BandBut, most of you probably didn’t know that its director is in fact an Elizabethan! Mr. Fannin has been the Assistant Band Director at Murray State since 1995. One of his key roles on campus is his leadership of the prestigious Racer Band. He also directs the Racer Pep Band, teaches music education courses, and runs various music festivals here at the universityMr. Fannin first came to Murray State due to his passion for teaching and working with college students. He knew that Murray State had a strong music program and an outstanding atmosphere, so he jumped on the job offer. Mr. Fannin saw that “students really enjoy the connections made within the residential college system.” When asked what advice he had for students, his first comment was to “go to class because it really helps.” He also wanted to remind everyone that it is okay to fail, because we sometimes learn the most from those mistakes.
