Columbia hit another milestone of progress today when several mid-Missouri regional leaders and I signed the final steel beam being placed at Columbia’s Regional Airport’s new terminal.

When finished next summer, COU’s expansion will accommodate more passengers and set a new tone for our region.  And it could not come at a better time as MU recruits more research faculty and continues to form new industry partnerships through our NextGen Precision Health initiative.

Mizzou has a strong partnership with the City of Columbia, and I was honored to represent all Tigers at this historic event.
