Election Day is today. As I mentioned last week, any voter registered in Greene County can vote at JQH Arena today.
I encourage all members of the university community to vote in this important election.
Missouri State University will honor the Springfield community’s military veterans during a special Veterans Day event at 6 p.m. Nov. 5, at Plaster Stadium. All veterans, family and friends are invited to attend.
Masks will be required.
The celebration will feature the following:
- Pride Band Performance Series: Salute to Our Veterans.
- Special playing of Taps.
- Military Branch Service Song.
- Special message from a member of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels.
- Special appearance by K-9s for CAMO.
- Free package of All American Mix popcorn (cherry, blue raspberry and vanilla) to the first 1,000 attendees.
This event will take the place of the Veterans Day breakfast gathering that we have traditionally hosted on campus. I encourage everyone to participate in this special celebration of our veterans on Nov. 5.
