“This has been my favorite experience so far at Missouri State! They are amazing people. We are all so thankful to be a part of this!” -Hannah G
“I learned so many things and feel like the knowledge I gained will not only make me a better person but will make me a better teacher for my future students. The one lesson that I don’t think I will ever forget is how amazing people can be when they leverage their strengths instead of focusing on their weaknesses. I look forward to continuing to assist the Bear POWER program in anyway I can while I am a student at Missouri State and beyond.” -Jamie
“This is the first time I’ve really been involved within campus and have already had such an amazing time! I’ve loved watching us all become friends and have such a fun time!” -Ben
“I loved getting to meet such sweet, new friends at the Bear POWER Retreat! I loved watching everyone become best friends over the course of the retreat, and I can’t wait for our future dance parties!” -Keri
“It has been amazing to see this process start from the ground up. After attending the KC conference last summer to now and actually meeting the students has made me so appreciative of everything! I’m so excited for these students and what they will accomplish with us!” -Hannah P
“I had such a great time getting to meet these wonderful people and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for them and Bear POWER.” -Maddie
“They’re going to be some of my best friends here at Missouri State. They are a bl’ast!!” – Mary
