MU and Missouri Community Colleges
Honor Sullivan Resident
Connie Medling, Sullivan, was honored by the University of Missouri and the Missouri Community College Association Presidents and Chancellors Council at a recognition ceremony for distinguished and successful mutual alumni. The presidents and chancellors of the Missouri Community College Association selected outstanding graduates from their community colleges, who later chose to attend and graduate from MU. More than 30 alumni were recognized for their accomplishments.
Medling received an associate degree from East Central College in 1997. She received a doctorate in veterinary medicine from MU in 2002. She now practices at Sullivan Veterinary Hospital.
“MU, the Missouri community colleges and other public and private colleges and universities in Missouri are incredibly important in the creation of social and human capital in Missouri—gaining access, the preparation of college graduates, finding better jobs, providing good incomes, raising families and providing community leaders in communities all across Missouri,” said Terry Barnes, assistant provost for community college partnerships for MU.
MU is the largest and oldest public university west of the Mississippi River and is the flagship university for the state of Missouri.
