MSSU officer candidates to attend Show Me Gold’s Dining Out event

Joplin, MO (SNS) – Officer candidates in the Show Me Gold military science program at Missouri Southern State University will gather for Dining Out at 6 p.m. Friday, April 18, in Billingsly Student Center’s Connor Ballroom.

The event will be a formal banquet for the students and their families, as well as a chance to celebrate their accomplishments, said Capt. Amanda Self, who coordinates the Missouri National Guard leadership program at Missouri Southern.

“They’ll be in full dress uniform, and it will be a chance for them to get acclimated to formal military customs and courtesies, as well as the senior leadership that will be there. There are five colonels from the Army coming,” said Self. “Their families will also have an opportunity to see what they’ve done this first year.”

The Show-Me Gold program gives participants the opportunity for professional development and to become commissioned officers in the Missouri Army National Guard. The program consists of classroom instruction, leadership laboratories and physical conditioning. Students are enrolled in academic programs at Missouri Southern, but also take military science courses offered through the National Guard.
