WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement on the passing of former Harris-Stowe State University President Dr. Henry Givens, Jr.:

“Henry Givens had a unique understanding of how education could dramatically impact people’s lives. He worked tirelessly to expand the reach and reputation of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. I announced my first run for the Senate at Harris-Stowe State University and was on the campus with Dr. Givens many times during his presidency. I will miss seeing him at the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration in St. Louis and benefitting from his advice. He was a good friend and an exceptional role model.”
