Students also attended a luncheon at the Capitol Plaza Hotel. The luncheon program opened with a welcome from Karla McCollum, chairman of Study Missouri and Director of Admissions at North Central Missouri College, and presentations from Jeremy Knee, general counsel for the Missouri Department of Higher Education and Sen. David Pearce from District 21 in west-central Missouri and chairman of the Senate Education Committee. Sen. Pearce has been a long-time supporter of international education in Missouri and Study Missouri. Special recognition was given to Dr. David Russell, who recently retired as Missouri’s Commissioner of Higher Education, for his service to the state of Missouri as well as his tremendous support for Study Missouri and Missouri’s International Student programs.
