Lukes Still Supporting MSU

Meridian, Miss.
Mississippi State University's College of Architecture, Art, and Design formally dedicated the Bob and Kathy Luke Library this week.

Bob Luke works as managing principal architect of LPK Architects PA in Meridian. Kathy Luke currently serves on the MSU Meridian dean's council.

The couple met while attending Mississippi State and graduated from the university.

They say they wanted to continue to give back to the school that gave them so much.

"There are givers and takers in life, and I want to be somebody that gives back," said Bob Luke. "And there's not a better feeling than we get when we try to give back to somebody, and especially when you see them take something that's so small and turning it into something that's great and phenomenal there."

The library has been expanded to include the art collection from Mitchell Memorial Library and is now an inclusive library for the entire college.
