What does Southeast Missouri State University mean to you?

We have adopted SEMO as part of the village that shapes the life of our son. We visited several schools as our son, Aaron, was being recruited for football. I personally had never heard of SEMO, but when we toured the campus and met with staff, he said to us “this feels like family!” We’ve been family since that day!

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

During such a trying time, I feel it is important to undergird our students to ensure they are sustained with access to the resources needed to continue towards success.

Why do you give to Southeast?

My son benefits from the generosity of donors. I contribute to not only support my student-athlete, but all student-athletes alike. And I have seen the difference small dollar donations can make.

Why do you believe the work of the Foundation is important?

It’s all of our responsibility to support those who will lead in the future.

Why should other people give to Southeast?

As stated earlier, small dollar donations make a big difference. I always encourage people to give what they can as often as they can.
