Joplin, MO (SNS) – The Alumni Association at Missouri Southern State University will host Legacy Day – a day for children ages 5-10 who have a relative who attended Missouri Southern – at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 23.

In partnership with the fine arts and performing arts departments, the Alumni Association will offer children to visit campus and explore different aspects of the art world. Children will build castles and create costumes, then attend Southern Theatre’s performance of “The Princess and the Pea.” Parents are encouraged to participate in the activities with their children and experience the arts at Missouri Southern.

“We have had terrific responses for Legacy Day over the years,” said Lee Elliff Pound, director of the Alumni Association. “We have provided different experiences for our legacies in order to showcase the variety of programs Southern has to offer.”

Legacy Day is free and open to children and grandchildren of alumni, as well as current and former students. To register, call 417-659-5466.
