COLUMBIA, Mo. - Mizzou's Statewide Outreach team continued last Thursday (Aug. 8th), as Director of Athletics Mike Alden and Director of Development Nico Yantko made several stops to visit Tiger fans in Northeast Missouri.
The day began as the team from Mizzou went to visit with several Tiger Scholarship Fund donors at Alan and Connie Morgan's farm in Paris, Mo.
The Mizzou team then headed east for a quick stop to see longtime supporters Michael and Richard Fohey in Shelbina, Mo. The group discussed this year's schedule, tailgating for home games, and the exciting away game travels. Shortly after, the group headed over to Monroe City to visit with several Tiger fans at the local favorite - Peggy Sue's Diner.
After the short trip to Monroe City, Alden and Yantko headed east to visit with Big Wheels Program supporter Jim Lovegreen and company at their Lovegreen Motors store in Palmyra.
While in Palmyra, Alden made a stop at the Marion County MU Extension. The Extension office staff was excited for the visit from Mike to show the university's appreciation for the longtime employees.
The next stop was in Hannibal, Mo., where a group of 15-plus proud Mizzou alumni and TSF supporters joined the Mizzou team to discuss future plans for the institution, SEC transition and the importance of growing our Mizzou supporters in Northeast Missouri.
After a quick drive up north, Mike and Nico met with several Tiger fans and TSF supporters in Kahoka, where the team was able to have a quick sit down at several local restaurants on the town square.
The final stop for Alden was at Keith's Café in Memphis, Missouri. Alden and Yantko were welcomed by the Harlo Donelson and a large group of loyal Tiger supporters, who were excited to hear of the updates from Columbia.
Next month, Alden and his Outreach team will visit Southwest Missouri, ending the night with a TSF Summit in Springfield.
