    This event is open to members of the public.

    The program offers a regular meeting for individuals enrolled in our EXCEL Leadership program and community minded individuals. Guests also help to raise the local awareness of the impact of Mizzou alumni in Greene County and, over time, helps to create a regular networking opportunity for Mizzou alumni, supporters and staff in the area.

    Communities investing in EXCEL programs see new and younger people running for public office, more involvement in community activities and organizations, heightened community appearance and better functioning boards and commissions.

    Session topic:

    The featured guest at this event will be John C. Russell. In January, Russell was appointed as Greene County Commissioner for the 2nd District.

He has a business degree from Mizzou (2006). The meeting will include a live question and answer session conducted by David Burton, county engagement specialist with University of Missouri Extension.
