Missouri State University-West Plains will welcome a new chancellor next spring, as Dr. Drew Bennett is stepping down at the conclusion of the academic year.

This past summer, Missouri State University student Madeline Hayes embarked on a journey she would never forget.

She left the comforts of home to help those who are suffering in one of the world’s most dangerous cities – Mosul, Iraq.
