Mizzou hosts gifted high school scholars
June 27, 2022
I enjoyed speaking with nearly 300 of our state’s most talented high school students – and the educators who inspire them – as part of Teacher Appreciation Day at the Missouri Scholars Academy.
Every summer, our campus welcomes gifted, rising juniors from across Missouri for the Academy. Over three weeks, scholars select a “major” (courses such as Making Beautiful Mathematics and the Nature of Creativity), attend guest lectures, and participate in thought-provoking discussions.
Founded in 1985 and supported by the Missouri Legislature, the Academy is an important way we serve some of our state’s brightest. It also introduces a new generation to Mizzou.
It was great meeting some of tomorrow’s Tigers.
