Show Me Value: St. Joseph

St. Joseph Show Me Value

President Tim Wolfe made his second stop on the Show Me Value tour March 22 in St. Joseph, Mo.   Wolfe visited more than 500 eighth-grade students at four area middle schools: Truman, Bode, Robidoux and Spring Garden.  His presentation titled "Find YOUR Path to Success" showcased the value of obtaining a college degree as well as the many career paths that a degree can lead to. 

In addition, Wolfe met with education, business and civic leaders to discuss barriers to college attainment and ways higher education leaders can improve college-going rates.  He then had a tour of Heartland Health, one of the area's largest employers.
