Alumni & friends news
MESSAGE FROM the President Dear alumni and friends, As they say, time flies when you’re having fun. It is amazing to me that I have been at Missouri Valley College for 15 years! Remember, I began working here as the vice president of academic affairs—a role I played for my first four years. Every day is challenging, but I truly do “love” my work. I have had the joy and privilege to watch both of my children enjoy a wonderful Valley education and watch them meet students from all over the world. I love to visit with alumni and friends of Missouri Valley College and hear their stories of when campus was their “home.” Everyday I work with the dedicated faculty and staff on our campus and with members of the Marshall and surrounding communities. The tie that binds us all is our love for and appreciation of our ability to ensure that our students receive a top notch, one-ofa-kind educational experience that will enable them to pursue whatever they can dream. In this issue, you’ll see some of the highlights that have occurred during the last fifteen years at Missouri Valley College. Dozens of very dedicated employees of Missouri Valley College have been responsible for the changes that have taken place. The physical transformation of campus is unbelievable! The Missouri Valley College Board of Trustees has been instrumental in making sure we were able to make these improvements. I can’t say enough about the faculty and staff here. They love Missouri Valley College and do whatever it takes to continue to move “their” college forward to bigger and brighter accomplishments. Our goal is to share as much with you as possible about what goes on at Missouri Valley College. Please sign up to receive our e-newsletters, visit moval.edu, and engage with us on social media. These are great ways to stay connected no matter how far you may be from campus. If you haven’t been back in several years - it is time to come home! So much has changed, but it is still the place where you created some of your best memories and made many lifelong friends. When you see an invitation for an MVC event in your area, I encourage you to join us and share your Missouri Valley story. I’m very excited about the future of Missouri Valley College. There are still many things to accomplish and more great people to meet. I genuinely thank all of our tremendous supporters for helping us achieve our goals. It truly is a great day to be a Viking,
Dr. Bonnie Humphrey President

LANCE '08 Wesson
The College basketball experience/ National Collegiate basketball hall of fame
he old saying, "do something you love and you'll never work a day in your life!" definitely holds true for MVC Alumnus Lance C. Wesson.
“Coach Lance really created a family culture within the men's basketball program,” Lance said. “He and his wife, Ellen ‘98, are like second parents to me.”
Lance currently works at The College Basketball Experience (CBE) / National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame in downtown Kansas City, Mo., as the director of basketball operations and special project sales.
Wesson has also stayed in contact with his former roommate and teammate, MVC Assistant Men’s Basketball Coach Ramone Powell ‘07. His career path has been another reason for him to connect with fellow alumni.
“I love the game of basketball!,” Lance said. “So to be able to work in an industry and for an organization that is all about basketball, it just doesn't get any better than that!”
“Stephen Pettlon ‘07 is another good friend that I have stayed connected with because we work in the same industry,” Lance said. “Stephen’s ties in the NBA community are a major reason for me landing the position with the Detroit Pistons.”
There is no such thing as a typical day for Lance. “Everyday is different,” Lance said. “Some days I'm in the office researching companies that may be interested in hosting an event, some days I'm out meeting with coaches about leagues or tournaments, and other times I'm at networking events or luncheons looking to make new contacts in hopes of getting them interested in what all The CBE has to offer.” At The CBE, Lance is responsible for all events that are basketball related—from tournaments, leagues, clinics, camps, etc. Because The CBE facility is one of the most sought after event venues in Kansas City, he is also tasked with planning, executing and overseeing all special events including banquets, proms, corporate events, weddings, and more. Prior to working for CBE, Lance worked as a marketing and sales account executive for the Detroit Pistons (NBA), and director of ticket sales for the University of Missouri - Kansas City. “One of my bigger accomplishments in my career is setting an NCAA record for increasing spectator attendance by 36% in one season while working at UMKC,” Lance said. Lance received his degree in business administration from Missouri Valley College, but he says a degree is not the only thing that he gained from his time at MVC. While at MVC, Lance played on the varsity men's basketball team from 2004 - 2007. Over the years, Lance has stayed connected with a number of Valley alumni including MVC Men’s Basketball Coach Chad Lance ‘98.
After graduating from Valley, Lance was given an internship opportunity with MVC Alumnus E.J. Narcise ‘81. “He gave me my first opportunity after life at Valley with an internship with his company that allowed me to learn the industry, which played a vital part in me reaching this point in my career,” Lance said. As stated by many Missouri Valley College alumni, their degree and their experiences at Valley are things that can never be taken away, and those experiences often shape who they become throughout their careers and their lives. “Coach Lance's methodology of overcoming adversity and being mentally tough has helped me not only in my career, but in life in general,” Lance said. “I have done some pretty cool things and accomplished a lot thus far in my career and life, but the road wasn't always smooth. After three years with Coach Lance and his pre/post season workouts, I hold this quote as gospel: ‘Adversity causes some men to break, and others to break records!’" With the support of his wife, Lauren, and son, Landon, along with his Missouri Valley College family, degree and experiences, Lance can go to work each day and do something that he loves.
"do something you love and you'll never work a day in your life!"

hen she received her first passport in 2009, she never thought she would have to add more pages to it. But as an athletic trainer working with Olympic athletes, Carrie (Harmon) Moore has been around the world. After graduating from Missouri Valley College in 1999, Carrie went on to earn her Master’s Degree in Athletic Training Management from Lindenwood University. In 2004, Carrie returned to her alma mater and served as an Assistant Athletic Trainer/Instructor at Missouri Valley College for 5 years. Carrie currently works as an Assistant Athletic Trainer/Instructor at Lindenwood University working with the men’s basketball & men’s volleyball teams. She teaches in the School of Sport, Recreation, & Exercise Sciences within the Athletic Training Department. Since 2009, Carrie has worked as a certified athletic trainer (ATC) for the Women’s World & Olympic wrestling teams. She has worked three World Cup Competitions, five Senior World Championships, three Canada Cup Competitions, two Olympic Games (London ’12 and Rio ’16), four National Team Camps at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., and one Spain Grand Prix. “Being involved with wrestling at this level has been a major accomplishment in my career,” Carrie said. “I never planned this part of my career, but I’ve definitely taken advantage of the opportunities that have been presented to me because of my profession. To be able to work with athletes that represent our country is humbling for me.” With a passion for athletic training, Carrie never missed an opportunity that her profession presented her. “My career as an athletic trainer allows me to interact with many people, learn from them, and to pay it forward,” Carrie said. “I get to travel all over the United States and to parts of the world I never expected to see.” Carrie’s journey began at Missouri Valley College. Here she connected with life-long friends and gained knowledge and experiences that stay with her throughout her athletic training career.

“The instructors at Valley always worked diligently to provide the one-on-one contact needed for a student’s success,” Carrie said. Carrie has stayed in contact with many of her former MVC students who are now certified athletic trainers or athletes still competing at the National Team level. Being an athletic trainer requires hard work and long hours, but Carrie managed to balance a successful career along with being a wife and mother. “I drop my kids off at school, get to work, teach, supervise multiple rehabilitation sessions a day, cover practice, interact with many students and athletes, treat my athletes, then go home to be a wife and mother,” Carrie said. Carrie says her husband, Jason, is always there to support her. “He’s always understood my desire to keep doing what I’m doing, whether it be here in Missouri or traveling abroad with USA Wrestling,” Carrie said. “My accomplishments would not be possible without him. His personal drive to succeed has pushed me to be my very best. We also have two sons, Emerson and Garrett, who are my best accomplishments.” Carrie shares the same advice with other Valley alumni that she continues to use in her own life. “Enjoy life every day with a great attitude, take advantage of each opportunity that’s given to you with a smile, work hard for what you want and be proud of what you’ve earned, and especially, don’t make excuses.”
“The instructors at Valley always worked diligently to provide the oneon-one contact needed for a student’s success.”

fter graduating from Missouri Valley College in 2007 with degrees in Business Administration and Economics, Stephen Pettlon, Jr., forged a business career in the sports and entertainment industry. Since starting his career with the Tampa Bay Rays organization, he has since 2008, grown into the role of the manager, ticket sales for the Miami HEAT. In his current role as the manager, ticket sales for the Miami HEAT, Stephen oversees the ticket sales department. He develops the next generation of sports ticket sales executives, as well as builds and maintains relationships with industry leaders and with the South Florida business community. As manager of ticket sales, Stephen also determines ticket prices and packages to maintain the organization's sellout streak of 296 straight home games, sets stretch revenue goals, and continuously networks to keep current with industry trends, top producers, and the ever-changing South Florida market. “One of the many joys of my career is that no two days are the same,” Stephen said. “My daily activities can range from attending appointments with sales executives, creating new revenue assets such as: membership programs, hosting non-HEAT game events, arena concerts and shows, and hosting corporate, premium, and special guests during HEAT games throughout the season to cultivate longlasting relationships.” Stephen has had a successful career during his time with the Miami HEAT. In 2008, he was hired to open the HEAT’s new groups sales department that finished in the Top 10 in the NBA in his first season and top five in the NBA from 2010-2015. In 2015, he was the recipient of the President’s Performance Award given out by the team’s president for exemplary performance and voted on by the executive council consisting of vice-presidents within the company.

Stephen has stayed connected to a number of fellow alums over the years, but his career has kept him in touch with one in particular.

“I remain in contact and have a strong friendship with fellow Valley Alumnus Lance Wesson,” Stephen said. “I assisted Lance’s breakthrough into the sports industry in 2010 by helping him get an opportunity to interview and earn a position with the Detroit Pistons as a sales representative. Through the years we have regularly chatted about topics and trends pertaining to the industry.” Stephen said Missouri Valley College helped him get to where he is today. “Transferring away from MVC after my freshmen year for a semester revealed how truly unique the educational experience at Valley was,” Stephen said. “Looking back at my years at Valley, the most valuable moments that helped prepare me for my career were the unlimited opportunities within the College to do something that forced me to become comfortable being uncomfortable. Professors Stockman, Grace, Quincy Williams, Wendy Leslie, Tiffany Bergman, and Milena Simic, along with Heath Morgan and Hans Wright, were instrumental in my growth and development as a person during my tenure at Valley. Without their personal attention and guidance I wouldn’t be where I am today.” Working for the Miami HEAT has provided many unique opportunities for Stephen. Stephen is the proud owner of two NBA World Championship Rings from the 2012-13 and 2013-14 Miami HEAT NBA Championship seasons. Stephen encourages all students interested in working in sports sales to contact him. “If you have a desire to work in sales for a sports team and would like tips or insight, contact me at Spettlon@HEAT.com.”

REX '97 Belt z Columbia PUBLIC Schools NASA Mission
t's not everyday that a high school science teacher gets the opportunity to fly a NASA mission, but for Rex Beltz ‘97 and 21 other educators selected for NASA’s 2016 Airborne Astronomy Ambassadors Program, that opportunity has become a reality. This fall, Rex will be flying on NASA’s SOFIA Observatory, which is a highly modified Boeing 747 jetliner housing an infrared telescope larger than the Hubble Space Telescope. The team will fly above 98 percent of the atmosphere. The Airborne Astronomy Ambassadors Program is a professional development opportunity for educators designed to improve teaching methods and to inspire students, and Rex knows that he will be able to put his experiences to good use. “I have the opportunity to be able to impact lives every day,” Rex said. “It is great to see the joy in a student’s eyes light up when they finally get it. The impact you can have on someone’s life that they will remember long after you have forgotten is remarkable.” Rex is certified in physical education K-12, health K-12, biology 9-12, and general science 9-12. He completed his masters in education administration at Lindenwood University and is a recipient of the Who’s Who Among American Teachers award. Rex currently works for Rock Bridge High School in Columbia, Missouri where he has taught biology, astronomy and geoscience for the last eight years. Prior to teaching at Rock Bridge High School, Rex taught in the Slater, Missouri School District for ten years.
“Valley not only gave me a foundational level of knowledge, but also helped develop a desire and work ethic which has been instrumental in being successful,” Rex said. “I remember instructors like Professor Kepner who not only required a strict discipline to be successful, but also fostered a love of learning. Professor Wellborn, who was always honest about the challenges and difficulties you would face in your career, always held you accountable for your actions but would also go to bat for you when you needed it.” At MVC, Rex participated in football and track and field and was a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon. “Coaches Purdum, Doolan and Grage always demanded hard work and dedication but also cared about you as a person and helped you to become the best you could be,” Rex said. With Rex’s experiences during his time in education, he has simple advice for students. “Embrace the grind and always look for the best in people,” Rex said. “We all have our faults but we all have something that makes us special as well.”
“Valley not only gave me a foundational level of knowledge, but also helped develop a desire and work ethic which has been instrumental in being successful.”
For Rex, Valley is a family affair. He married fellow Valley Alum Cindy (Hinnah) ‘00, has two nephews, Chaney and Davis, that graduated in 2016, and his son is currently enrolled at MVC. Rex believes that Missouri Valley College prepared him for the world.

hile Crystal (Young) McGraw '01 and Ellen (McKinney) Lance '98 are business partners, they did not know each other during their time at Missouri Valley College. Yet, together they have built a company dedicated to allowing all consumers to “Live Like You Choose!” Crystal and Ellen started Common Good Natural Living (CGNL) in 2013, a company that provides services at home, at a day program or within an individual's own home to encourage playing an active role in the community no matter their disability. As co-owners of CGNL, the partners' days are anything but ordinary. Their day might be full of operation management, tracking accounts payable and receivable or working with guardians or service coordinators among other things. “The day-to-day operations of an organization like ours isn’t something that is the same every day,” Crystal said. “People's lives change by the minute and it is important that we are flexible.” In addition to their bachelor’s degrees, Crystal’s in education, and Ellen’s in human service agency management, they each went on to obtain their master's degrees. Crystal and Ellen have experienced much success with their company. In 2013, CGNL opened its doors with 43 employees and now they employ more than 100. Both are able to look back and identify experiences at MVC that helped them get to where they are today. “I look back now and there are so many things that have inspired me that all happened because of my time at MVC,” Ellen said. “Alpha Xi Delta was so important in my learning about an organization; how decisions are so much bigger than self. Still today I know exactly where I’m from. MVC raised me.”
Fall 2016 | 14
Crystal's MVC experience was similar. “I loved everything about Missouri Valley,” Crystal said. “I loved the small classes and instructors that knew you and helped you with anything you needed!” Both Crystal and Ellen, along with their families, have stayed connected with Missouri Valley College over the years. “Our relationship with MVC runs deep across the world,” Ellen said. “We have reconnected with numerous friends that either work for the State of Missouri, have expressed interest in opening their own organization, or we have friends employed with us at CGNL. We have employed more than 20 MVC students and graduates.” Crystal and Ellen are both married to MVC graduates, Chad McGraw ‘95 and Chad Lance ‘98. Their children, Connor and Carlee McGraw and Jace and Jada Lance, have been taught at a young age to bleed purple and orange. It’s not only great for them to live and work in their college town, but they say it’s good for their children as well. “Our company has been able to give back to the College because Missouri Valley is a place that both of our families love very much,” Crystal said. “One of my very favorite things about living right here in Marshall is meeting students that have become friends for life! These kids are great role models for our kids!”

rom the California coast to a small college in the Midwest and now, to the Centennial State of Colorado, Josh Miller ‘05 has found his place in city government serving as director of community services and economic development for the City of Fort Morgan, Colorado, where he and his wife, Kristen, and their two children reside. As community services director, Josh oversees the recreation, parks, library, museum, senior center, cemetery, golf course, and economic development departments for the City of Fort Morgan. A typical workday for Josh is never the same. From operation and long-range planning to leading economic development and marketing activities, he is always on the go. Josh meets with government officials and the public on a regular basis and stays involved with a number of professional organizations and civic groups. At Missouri Valley College, Josh was an NAIA AllAmerican baseball student-athlete. After graduating in 2005 with a degree in recreation administration, he was given the opportunity to join the MVC athletic staff as head softball coach. While coaching, Josh completed his master's degree in business management at Lindenwood University in 2009. After a number of successful coaching years, including a conference tournament championship and a trip to the national tournament, Josh moved on from MVC, ultimately ending up in Fort Morgan. In 2013, historic rainfall events led to widespread flooding throughout Colorado. The City of Fort Morgan’s 300-acre regional park was impacted, leaving the only two lighted softball and baseball fields in the city under water. “When the floods happened in 2013, we suffered no loss of life and minimal property damage in the city,” Josh said. “However we did see our largest community park destroyed. Having visited many sports complexes as a baseball player and softball coach, the goal was to mimic modern complexes seen elsewhere in the country. We said we would restore it and ensured it would meet modern standards and be used for years to come. I believe we’ve done that.”
Fall 2016 | 16
The restoration of Riverside park cost over $3 million. In his role with the City of Fort Morgan, Josh was able to bring his knowledge of a sport to the City of Fort Morgan in leading the city in a $1 million restoration and rebuilding of a new and modern baseball and softball facility. During his time with the City of Fort Morgan, he has received the Colorado Lottery Starburst Award (Project Recognition), the American Public Works Association Small Communities Disaster Recovery Award, and has published articles in Parks Recreation Business Magazine and the Colorado Real Estate Journal. There are a number of things he attributes to his success, but most are rooted at Missouri Valley College. “Networking and relationships have been critical to my success,” Josh said. “The alums I remain in touch with today are both from my time as a student, as well as time spent on staff. A few that have been involved in my current work are Chris Shotwell '05 and John Sneed '71. Through Valley alumni events I have been able to reconnect with Angie Nickel '06 and Patrick Dunn '05.” “Valley always had me busy and often times managing more than one thing,” Josh said. “Today I have a full plate and truly believe Valley taught me how to juggle it all.” Josh truly enjoyed his time on campus and encourages students to do the same. “Enjoy your days on campus and don’t take these years for granted,” Josh said. “The entire Valley experience has led me to where I am today. Invest in relationships! Utilize the staff, classroom environment, and take advantage of extracurricular activities offered on campus.”
“The entire Valley experience has led me to where I am today."

twYla '15 Reid University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine
n 2015, Twyla Reid graduated from Missouri Valley College with a biology degree which would serve as a springboard for her future goal of becoming a veterinarian. She was accepted into the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine in 2015 and will complete her doctorate of veterinary medicine in 2019. “Veterinary school requires such well rounded individuals,” Twyla said. “Definitely working in a vet clinic for my internship was beneficial, but so was teaching Supplemental Instruction, being a part of the MVC rodeo program, and traveling to Belize for Field Ecology with MVC biology department.” Vet school has proven to be a full-time job for Twyla and her classmates. Typically, a full day begins at 5 a.m. with pre-exam studying, and ends after 6 p.m. after labs and lectures. “Vet school is very challenging,” Twyla said. “I believe many of my classmates would agree that simply staying in vet school is a great accomplishment in itself!" Many people who graduate from MVC leave with so much more than just a degree.
Fall 2016 | 18
“Valley gave me a lot of opportunity and a lot of freedom to really go beyond the classroom,” Twyla said. “Definitely, there are certain classes and professors that helped me along, but I think any education is only what you make of it, and I think I made the most of my time at Valley.” Although it is hard work, Twyla takes time to recognize and enjoy the opportunities that she is given as she continues her education. “I enjoy being around so many people that are focused on the same goal and are as determined as me to get there,” Twyla said. “The classwork can be very grueling and it is easy to get burnt out on 10-hour classroom days. However, just when I start to wonder what I got myself into, we have some awesome guest veterinarian come to speak at a club meeting and remind us all why we are doing what we are doing, and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, or I get called in for an owl coming in, a horse colic, or a foal with septicemia and I get to help hands-on treat a live animal, which makes it all worth it.”
“Valley gave me a lot of opportunity and a lot of freedom to really go beyond the classroom.”
lias Melly, graduated from Missouri Valley College in 2013, and is currently working his way toward his Doctorate of Nurse Anesthesia Practice. Elias originally came to Missouri Valley College on a track and field/cross country scholarship. While balancing school, athletics and work was challenging at times, he is thankful he was able to obtain his Bachelor's of Science in Nursing (BSN) to prepare him for higher degrees in the medical field. After graduating with a BSN, Elias went on to work for Fitzgibbon Hospital before taking a position with the University of Missouri Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit in December of 2013. In addition to his BSN, Elias is a Critical Care Registered Nurse and became a Stroke Certified Nurse. Three years after obtaining his degree from MVC, Elias decided he was ready to take his biggest step yet—pursuing a Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia degree at Missouri State University.
“The ability to advance in my education and become an advanced practicing nurse is very rewarding.” Elias is forever thankful to those professors at MVC who helped him obtain his BSN. “I cannot forget the MVC instructors that made my dreams possible—Tonya Eddy, Teresa Taylor, Carla Wade and my coach, John Pickens.” Elias continues to stay in touch with fellow MVC nursing alumni and classmates, along with the MVC Director of Nursing Peggy Van Dyke. Without the support of his wife, Edna, and their two daughters, Ella and Elia, Elias would not be able to devote his time to an advanced degree in the medical field.
“I cannot forget the MVC instructors that made my dreams possible..."
Being a full-time student registered nurse anesthesia (SRNA) is very demanding of your time. Elias spends 10-12 hours per day studying including 5-6 hours per day in the classroom. But for Elias, it is worth it.

CHARLES BACON, JR. Retired Senior Vice-President, General Counsel, and Secretary of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City Charles "Bud" Bacon, Jr., earned a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree from Vanderbilt University in 1971 and a juris doctor degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City in 1977. He spent 30 years with the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, retiring in 2010.
"I couldn't be more proud to support and be a part of the Valley family."
Bacon has served on several boards including the Gillis Center, Cornerstones of Care and Friends of Chamber Music. He holds professional memberships with the American Bar Association and the Association of Corporate Counsel. Bacon also serves as a hearing officer in the disciplinary system for the Missouri Bar. Bacon is the current chairman of the Missouri Valley College Board of Trustees. He served on the Board from 1989-1991, and rejoined in 2003, with his term ending in 2021. Bacon's father, Charles Bacon, Sr., also served on the MVC Board of Trustees. When adding both Bacon's and his father's years of service, the Bacon family has served the Board for 65 yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;more than half of the College's existence!
Why he supports MVC Missouri Valley is an institution that is on the move. Not only does it provide a valuable educational experience for its students, it gives them a solid jump-start for a successful "life after college." Building on its long, distinguished history, in recent years Valley has taken great strides forward in terms of academics, the quality of its campus facilities, and as a productive member of the Marshall community. That is largely due to a top-notch administrative staff, a dedicated faculty, and an engaged, committed Board of Trustees. I couldn't be more proud to support and be a part of the Valley family.

Kirbie Crouse is entering her junior year at Missouri Valley College. She is an elementary education major originally from Gallatin, Missouri and has already put together a spectacular career while competing for the women's rodeo team. Crouse is a two-time all-American in the breakaway roping competition, including a National championship performance in the event at the 2016 College National Finals Rodeo in Casper, Wyoming where she helped the women's team to a reserve National championship finish.
At what age did you get started in rodeo competitions? I was probably about four or five when I started competing at youth rodeos. What was the name of your first horse? My first big girl horse was Hopper. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of my favorites and he got me really hooked on competition.
Fall 2016 | 28
How did you get involved in rodeo? My parents got me involved in rodeo because they both started competing when they were in junior high. A lot of my extended family rodeos as well. When did you become aware of the Missouri Valley rodeo program and what attracted you to the team? I became aware of MoVal when I was a freshman in high school. Our close friends, Brady ‘10 and Krista (Staley) Wilson ’10, both attended MVC and competed on the rodeo team. I visited twice before I made my decision to sign with Valley. What’s Ken Mason like at practices and competitions? How does he get the team motivated and focused for competition? Coach is very attentive and encouraging during practice. He is always around to help us with whatever we are struggling with. If he doesn’t know the answer to a question, he will call people until he finds out. Coach is so energetic all the time, especially at the rodeos. He gets so excited for every single person on our team. How well does everyone get along inside the Porter Brown Rodeo Residence Hall? Everyone gets along pretty well considering we have to live together and are around each other 24/7. The rodeo team is like a huge family. How much has the new DJ Rodeo Arena helped with practices and preparations for the team? The new arena is a huge blessing. It has helped so much with coordinating practices and is super helpful with practicing throughout the winter. We are so lucky to have it. What’s are the names of the horses you rode during the 2015-16 season and how long have you had the horse(s)? My breakaway horse is Bob. We’ve had him since he was 6 and he is 14 now. I have only been riding him for the past 2 ½ years. He was originally my dad’s calf horse that he trained himself. My barrel horse is April. I’ve only had her for a year or little more. And my goat tying horse is
Skip. I have had him for a year now. What’s the key to being successful at breakaway roping? I think the key to being successful in breakaway roping is your fundamentals and your mental game. If you can control your mind, then you can accomplish anything. Have you ever tried riding the bulls or the broncs? When I was 14 or so, my little brother was really into calf riding which is a variation of bull riding for younger kids. He was riding the calf one day and I decided to get on, needless to say that was the first and last time I tried anything like that. What were the first thoughts or feelings you had after your 2016 National championship performance? My first thoughts were really jumbled. I couldn’t wrap my mind around it. I was just so excited that I finally accomplished my goal. What was the reaction from your family and friends after your National championship performance? Well, Coach Mason was almost crying when he saw me, and I think my dad was too. But my dad hides it better than Coach does. All of my teammates that were in Casper were all so excited for me as well. My close friend, Jacy, was the first one to greet me outside of the arena. We were both crying at that point. But the whole rest of the night I couldn’t even use my phone because of all the texts and Facebook posts I was getting. My mom was watching the live feed because she was in Tennessee at the junior high nationals with my brother. She said that she was surrounded by 30 or more people all watching me.

renovation of the heart of campus
Opened in 1970 and named in honor of beloved Professor William Ira â&#x20AC;&#x153;Popâ&#x20AC;? Ferguson, the Ferguson Center, which is the building that houses the dining hall, is truly one of the hubs of student services on the Missouri Valley College campus. The dining hall renovation project has transformed the 8,450 square foot dining hall facility into a modern, eclectic eatery to accommodate the very diverse culture of our students. Additionally, the dining hall also provides a very popular meeting facility to accommodate the demands of faculty, staff, students, and alumni.
Fall 2016 | 34
The student body at Missouri Valley College is a diverse one. There are just over 1,400 students who call the College home. Our student body represents 44 states and 43 countries. Because home is often many miles away and many of our students are involved in extracurricular activities, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t often get to travel home. This in turn creates a very close-knit, caring student body. Most of our students eat three meals per day in the dining hall. This is not just a place to dine; it is a place to gather, a place where friendships are made, a place to interact with faculty and staff members and students from all over the world, and it is a place that is truly the heart of our campus.
PRESIDENT'S SOCIETY Member Profile
Why do you you think it's important to give to MVC/belong to the President's Society? Quite frankly, it is important to support the good work President Humphrey has done during her tenure. The culture of an organization stems from its leadership, and President Humphrey has been the College's leading ambassador. She has grown the footprint of MVC while maintaining a steady foundation. In a recent visit to the college with two recruits, President Humphrey made time to meet the recruits— that is a culture of caring only a small college could offer and deserves support. How did MVC impact your life? As a New Jersey native, the idea of going to school far away seemed appealing, and the distance (in a time of no social media or instant communication) forced a fairly immature person to grow up quickly. When your only forms of communication are a pay phone and letters combined with the fact I did not know anyone on campus, it was certainly a time to start facing life. My senior roommate, Travis DeMoss ‘88 will forever be my friend and is certainly another asset produced by MVC. So where are you at now? After obtaining my master’s degree in communication from Stephen F. Austin State University (TX) in 1993, my career expanded to include political consulting, entrepreneurship and being an adjunct professor. To this day, my autumn Friday nights are spent at my high school alma mater in Millville, N.J. as the playby-play announcer on local cable and live streaming video--a labor of love for the past 20 years. In 2006, my career took another turn when I was asked by a good friend to work for his company, Benecard Services, which administers pharmaceutical benefits, as a liaison to consultants and brokers. It turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life and have been fortunate to experience much success. Currently, my residence is in Mount Laurel, N.J. My wife, Elaine, and I were married in 2006 and we have two daughters, Elise and Elizabeth.
to have my name associated with a project that will continue to grow the college. The money given to MVC will make a much more tangible difference than at larger universities. At MVC, you actually witness the difference your donation makes, such as a turf field or a student center. You choose to support MVC from several hundred miles away—why? The distance really doesn't matter since I step on the campus nearly every year, and sometimes, twice a year. Every time I return, there is something new, whether it is a program, a building or initiative. The fact that MVC not only has grown positively, but has adapted to a changing society is proof that my contributions are being diligently spent on an overall vision for the college's future. What do you hope your gifts will do for MVC? Improve an already positive Valley experience. Great organizations have short term and long term goals, and it is evident over the past 15 or so years that MVC has stuck to the plan. Why would you encourage others to consider giving to MVC? One only has to see the college and compare today to 20 or 30 years ago. When someone sees the transformation of the college over that period of time, it is very hard to not get involved. The enthusiasm and teamwork exhibited by the entire MVC staff shows everyone has bought into the vision for MVC, a key for any organization's future success.
At what point in your lifetime did you choose to support MVC? The point at which I was drawn back to Missouri Valley was early in President Humphrey's tenure when many positive changes were starting to occur. My first sizable donation to the college was to the Student Center after an amazing sales presentation by President Humphrey. I am humbled and honored Fall 2016 | 35

Describe a bit about your time at MVC. My time at Valley was exceptional. I don’t think I would trade it for anything. I was a member of Alpha Sigma Phi Fraternity and played on the golf team for one year. I also was a founding member of Student Government. My major in college (Public Administration) was also an amazing experience. The almost daily debates with my favorite teacher, Dr. Acay, will never be forgotten. How did MVC impact your life? The impact of MVC on my life is likely immeasurable. That is why I feel so strong about the need to repay the school for giving me so much. I have several lifelong friends I met at Valley, and I am lucky enough to be able to work with 3 of them in the next phase of life. Work has become more of a hobby thanks to what Missouri Valley has given me. Where are you at now? Today I am living in Edwardsville, Ill., working in our family business, Truck Centers, Inc. My sister and I are the third generation now in the business, so I get to work with my big sister, who has always been giving me orders, as well as my buddies from school. In the grand scheme of things it doesn’t get much better. Truck Centers is a full service Freightliner, Western Star, Ottawa, Fuso, Benson, Transcraft, Sprinter dealer with locations in Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana. I am proud to be just one of roughly 630 people that make up this great company. Currently my responsibilities include overseeing our Fall 2016 | 36
Morton, Springfield, Eureka, Hudson, Decatur and soon to be Effingham, Ill., facilities. Additionally, I guide our sales team with technical assistance selling trucks and I handle a few key accounts directly. At what point in your lifetime did you choose to include MVC in your plans? I always wanted to be able to find a way to give back to school. I just needed to be presented the right situation. With my whole life insurance policy it was such a simple process to include MVC I just couldn’t pass it up. Life has so many ups and downs and twists and turns I just figured after my son, Justin II, was born it needed to happen! Describe the type of planned gift that you have established for Missouri Valley College. After my son was born my wife, Sarah, and I felt strongly we needed to have a plan in place to provide for him as well as her upon my passing. This led me to a whole new area that I never investigated before. That being said, I didn’t know or realize you can have a rider on one’s life insurance policy to go back to my alma mater. I felt this was/is a great way to pay back an institution that invested in me at a time in life when I’m pretty sure few would.
support All year long!

George and Judy Hiles
“After having done it with other organizations, we decided to set up a monthly recurring gift with Missouri Valley College.
“My time at Missouri Valley played such an important role in my personal and professional life. I wanted to give back in the hope that my monthly financial contribution can help Valley prepare future students to face personal and professional challenges with confidence and grace.
By giving each month, we are able to give more each year as it better allows us to budget. We wouldn’t be able to do one large gift each year so giving monthly is great for us. We encourage others to do the same as it’s so convenient. All too often, writing “the check” is often put off, and it’s then too easily forgotten. This way we are able to have it automatically drafted from our credit card. It’s gives us a good feeling to support Valley monthly all year long.”
My recurring gift is just easy. I don't have to think about it each month. We know that Valley is a private institution and depends greatly on alumni and friends. I think it is simply the right thing to do when financially possible. The recurring monthly contribution option makes it effortless.” —Dr. Marci (Barnett) Dowdy ‘75
