Media Resources for the Inauguration of Southeast Missouri State University President Carlos Vargas
Southeast Missouri State University President Carlos Vargas will be inaugurated as the 18th president of Southeast at 2 p.m. Thursday, May 5, in the Show Me Center. Below are several resources – including a link to a live stream of the inauguration to share with your viewers, listeners and readers; an official photo; logos; a news release; a biography; and information on Southeast’s past presidents for use by the media in covering this story.
After the inauguration, we will make available on this same page a variety of sound bites from President Vargas for your use. Because President Vargas will move immediately from the inauguration ceremony into a reception to greet guests, he will not be available for media interviews after the ceremony. We hope the clips to be posted here late afternoon on Thursday, May 5, will be useful to you in your coverage of the inauguration.
For more information, please contact the Southeast News Bureau at (573) 651-2552.
