    In Greene County, the Mizzou Athletics Department, the Greene County Extension Council, and the Greater Ozarks Chapter of the Mizzou Alumni Association join forces for an annual event celebrating the founding of the University of Missouri and the ongoing impact of the university through county extension programs.

    The evenings featured presentation is “Data in Motion: How Sports Analytics is Changing the Game,” by Dr. Chris Wikle and Dr. Erin Schliep, College of Arts and Science at the University of Missouri. Their research focuses on the difference sports analytics is making on games.

    Other guest Speakers will include Todd McCubbin, director of alumni, Mizzou student Lynn Kruel, president of the Alumni Association Student Board and a graduate of Republic High School.

    Greene County Clerk Shane Schoeller will also swear in new members of the Greene County Extension Council, extension partners Carl Redmon and Tom Kissee will both be recognized with the “Leaders Honor Roll” award and 4-H alum and current Mizzou student Lynn Kruel of Republic, Mo., will speak about the impact of both Mizzou and 4-H on her life.

    There will also be a raffle of items during the event. All proceeds from this year’s event will go to the Greater Ozarks Mizzou Alumni Chapter’s student scholarship fund.

    Greg Cole, president, Greater Ozarks Chapter of Mizzou Alumni Association, David Burton, county engagement specialist for MU Extension, and Mollie Landers, with the Mizzou Alumni Association, are coordinators of this event.

    The University of Missouri was founded February 11, 1839 by the Geyer Act. This year we are celebrating the 181st birthday of Mizzou, of which MU Extension is a part.
