Dec. 3, 2012
COLUMBIA, Mo. - Mizzou's Statewide Outreach program continued last Thursday (Nov. 29) , as Director of Athletics Mike Alden and Assistant Director of Development Nico Yantko made several stops to visit Tiger fans in Northwest Missouri.
The day began as the team from Mizzou went to Malta Bend to visit with several donors and supporters from Lafayette, Saline and Carroll County at the local favorite Waggin' Wheel.
The Mizzou team then headed West to visit with the Ray County MU Extension, where they were able to visit with longtime Tiger supporters, Judge David and Valerie Miller. The MU Extension staff was excited for the visit from Mike to come to Richmond to show their appreciation for the longtime employees.
During their travels up North, Alden was able to connect with several of the Mizzou Radio Partners, discussing the Athletic Department and the future of the program and growth of the University of Missouri.
Next up was a stop in St. Joseph at the Albrecht-Kemper Museum, where a large group of 60+ proud Mizzou alumni and TSF supporters joined by Mizzou Athletics Partners KESJ-AM for the Mizzou Luncheon. The St. Joseph supporters listened carefully as Alden addressed Tiger Nation on future plans for the institution, SEC transition and the importance of growing our Mizzou supporters in Northwest Missouri. The St. Joseph Alumni Chapter presented Alden with a check for the Tiger Scholarship Fund.
Later, the group met with several Tiger fans and long-time Buchanan MU Extension employees who listened attentively as Alden spoke with the group about the exciting year to come for Tiger Athletics.
Shortly after, Mike Alden was able to connect with Missouri Western Athletics Director, Kurt McGuffin and staff at the Griffon Athletic facility. Kurt and staff took the Mizzou team around to each of the MWSU Athletics facilities, as well as visiting with several staff members.
The final stop for Alden was at Ecto Development in Blue Springs, Missouri. Alden was welcomed by the group of Tiger Supporters, who showed the team their new facilities and plans for expanding their operations in Blue Springs.
After a quick drive back from Blue Springs, the team ended the day at Mizzou Arena to watch Mizzou face-off against the SEMO Redhawks, where former Mizzou student-athlete and former Associate Athletics Director, Mark Alnutt is now the Athletics Director. The Tigers won the game 80-51.
Next month, Alden and his Outreach team will visit St. Louis, and finish the year in St. Louis for the 2012 MU vs. Illinois Braggin' Rights game.
