This hits home for me and for countless others in the Springfield area. My heart breaks when I see pictures from Joplin. This is a town that I visited often.
I did my after Thanksgiving and after Christmas shopping there. I played basketball at the high school. I have former students who go or went to school at Southern.
It's heart breaking!!
So the students were actually able to help the soldiers and the victims of the tornado. I am so proud of our student body!
