What does Southeast Missouri State University mean to you?

My late husband and I both graduated from SEMO. We owe our success as teachers to our alma mater and to beloved teachers like Helen Cleaver and Harold O. Grauel.

Why is it important to support students (at a time like this)?

People are struggling with the economy and the pandemic raging through the world. Students need financial help if they are to succeed.

Are you a Southeast alumnus?


How has earning your degree from Southeast impacted your life?

I would never have met my late husband, and I would never have become the successful teacher that I became without my education from SEMO.

How have you been impacted by the gifts of donors?
