Health-care provider gives Missouri State University his farm, creates faculty chair in psychology

The peaceful 250-acre plot of land near Fair Grove looks like many farms in the Ozarks. There’s a barn, a garden, wooden fence posts and animals wandering languidly. That is, until you enter the building that has a chapel. Not many farms have a building dedicated to healing and finding a higher spirit, with artwork and ceremonial objects celebrating many of the world’s religious traditions. This building, the former conference center of the Holos Insititute of Health, also has libraries, conference rooms, offices and more. The land, livestock, conference center and other structures were all part of a gift to Missouri State from Dr. C. Norman Shealy.
