Mu Athletics visited several places in Missouri on the February outreach trip.
Feb. 27, 2012
The Statewide Outreach program continued on Thursday, Feb. 23 as three Mizzou staffers made their way around Central Missouri with stops in Howard, Chariton, Randolph and Audrain Counties. MU Director of Athletics Mike Alden was joined by Assistant Director of the Tiger Scholarship Fund Nico Yantko and Assistant Director of Game Operations Derek Doolittle.
The group departed Columbia and made its way to Fayette, Mo. in Howard County. While in Fayette, the trio made a stop at Central Methodist University for a brief chat with its Athletic Director and Faculty Athletic Representative. Next up, a trip was made to the Howard County MU Extension Office to deliver posters and schedule cards, and say hello to the Extension staff.
After leaving Fayette, Alden and company made its way to Chariton County for a stop in Salisbury, Mo. for coffee with a few loyal Tiger boosters at Bradshaw's Bistro & Coffee. The group had coffee and shared a few laughs, all while being brought up to speed on the current state of Tiger Athletics.
The group also made a stop in Randolph County where Alden and company were welcomed by nearly 100 Rotarians and their guests at a Moberly Rotary Club meeting hosted at the Heartland Banquet Center. Among other topics, Alden addressed his letter to Tiger Nation that was sent out last week, highlighting several of the adjustments that will be made as a result of the transition into the SEC.
Following the Rotary Club gathering Alden sat down with KWIX-AM, one of the departments media affiliates out of Moberly, Mo for an interview. After wrapping up that interview, the trio continued its trek and made its next stop in Mexico, Mo. for an interview with KXEO-AM / KWWR-FM.
The group remained in Audrain County for its final stop of the day as it paid visit to a gathering of Tiger boosters at the Commerce Bank. A gathering of around twenty was welcomed to an open forum as Alden fielded any questions, comments or concerns that this group had.
The Statewide Outreach program is scheduled to continue in late March as Alden and some other athletic staffers will travel north for a trip highlighted by a visit to the Princeton Rotary Club.
