  • Aaron Baker, Rogers, Ark., representing MSSU alumni.
  • Rob O’Brian, Joplin, representing the community.
  • Chris D. Churchwell, Joplin, representing the Missouri Southern Foundation.

The committee will also hear a report on the public focus groups set for 3 to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3, and 11 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Dec. 4, in Connor Ballroom at Billingsly Student Center. The focus groups will consider questions such as what the vision should be for the university, and what skills, traits and experience Missouri Southern should look for in a new president.
