Don Walsworth, Chairman of the University of Missouri Board of Curators, and Dr. Gordon H. Lamb, Interim President of the University, will be available to visit with reporters on Friday, July 27, upon conclusion of the Board of Curators open meeting in Marceline. Their subject matter will include reviewing actions at the Board meeting and discussion of the Board's annual retreat, also being held in Marceline this week.

The Board's open meeting is expected to end around 11:30 a.m. Friday. However, the Board meeting schedule is subject to change on short notice, so media should allow ample time to be in place upon conclusion of Friday's open meeting.

The media availability will be at the Walsworth Community Center, 124 East Ritchie Avenue in Marceline, site of the Board meeting on Friday. A mult box will be provided; however, there is no Internet access available at the Community Center. Audio from the media availability will be posted Friday afternoon on the University of Missouri home page at http://www.umsystem.edu

The Board of Curators traditionally conducts its July meeting at a location selected by its chair, and Chairman Walsworth chose to bring his colleagues to his hometown in north-central Missouri. To learn more about Marceline, visit the community's Web site at http://www.marceline.org
