I hope you had a relaxing break last week. I began the week cheering on the Bears at the Hall of Fame Classic basketball tournament. While in Kansas City, I met with many donors and friends of the university and two Coordinating Board members and attended two alumni events. I ended the week attending the Missouri Valley Conference volleyball tournament that we hosted in JQH Arena. In the middle of the week, I celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday with friends and family.
As we face the three-week sprint to the end of the semester, I wanted to let you know about two upcoming events.
Next Tuesday, Dec. 4, at 2 p.m. I will host the annual President’s Holiday Reception in the PSU Ballroom West. You will receive an invitation to the reception this week via email. I hope you will make time to stop by.
Join me at commencement
On Dec. 14, at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., we will have our fall commencement ceremonies. Sen. Jay Wasson will receive the university’s Government Excellence Award at the 10 a.m. ceremony. This award recognizes Sen. Wasson’s support for Missouri State University through his work in support of state funding for the university, legislation that removed Missouri State’s statutory degree restrictions and other critical legislative accomplishments.
Matt Blunt will receive the Bronze Bear Award at the 1:30 p.m. ceremony in recognition of his support for Missouri State University. During his time as Governor of the State of Missouri, Blunt championed the legislation that gave our institution its name — Missouri State University.
Please make an effort to join me at these end-of-year events before we close for winter break on December 20.
Thanks for all you do for Missouri State!
