Director of athletics writes summer letter to fans

Dear Bears Fans-

It's been a very busy and productive spring and summer thus far. I once again want to recognize and acknowledge the work of Missouri State's students in the passage of the B.E.A.R. Fee last fall. Thanks to their work, we are in the midst of a transformation on campus. If you haven't been by campus recently, I recommend you wear a hard hat when you visit. Our recreation and athletic fields are making great progress, and by the fall the campus will be gleaming with pride over these new facilities. I encourage you to drive by if you're traveling through Springfield to see all the progress. If you can't make it to campus, there are live construction cameras and photo galleries available online.
