Missouri Southern State University will take its show on the road with their next stop on the Green & Gold Tour.
Missouri Southern officials, faculty, students and Roary the Lion will spend the day in area towns this fall in order to connect with communities and prospective students. Morning coffee events, alumni lunches, free shaved ice and sponsorship of football games are a few of the events on the schedule for the upcoming tour.
High-school students in each community can enter a drawing to win one of two $1,000 scholarships to be given away during halftime at the sponsored football games.
The next tour stop will be Friday, Oct. 22, in Nevada. Activities will include a coffee social for community members from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at Precision Coffee, 224 E. Walnut; and an alumni lunch at Buzz’s BBQ and Steakhouse from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
There will be free Kona Ice for Nevada High School students from 2:50 to 4 p.m.; and the sponsored Nevada High School football game at 7 p.m.
The Green & Gold Tour will continue with a stop in Seneca with a date to be announced soon.
“These communities have provided many students to Missouri Southern over the years, and this is a way for us to show our appreciation,” said Dr. Brad Hodson, executive vice president of Missouri Southern.
