Three Rivers represents Southeast Missouri at MCCA ‘Rally Day’ | Business
JEFFERSON CITY,MO (KFVS) - Three Rivers College leadership turned out in Jefferson City on Wednesday, Feb. 20 as Missouri Community College Association (MCCA) held their annual rally day in the Capitol building.
Representing Three Rivers College at Rally Day was Dr. Devin Stephenson, college president; Wilbur Thornton, trustee; Missy Marshall, director of the Three Rivers Center at Sikeston; Bill Hampton, director of the Three Rivers Center at Dexter; Connie Hampton, director of the Three Rivers Center at Malden; Janine Heath, special assistant to the president; and Teresa Johnson, director of Communications.
MCCA gave out stickers with “Fair Share,” printed on them, as they look to lobby members of the Joint Committee on Education, which is currently drafting a new funding formula for higher education.
Three Rivers College President Dr. Devin Stephenson said he met with members of his legislative delegation from Southeast Missouri on the future of the funding formula for community colleges and they were “very supportive,” of increasing the funds for community college facilities.
Mulligan said she was optimistic that a new formula for funding would provide a more equitable share to community colleges, and that the 12 community colleges in the state were working together “better than ever before,” to lobby in Jefferson City with a single message.
