Missouri State University-West Plains Chancellor Drew Bennett says withholds to the school’s current budget and reductions to the upcoming fiscal year are its largest in over a decade.

Bennett made the comments during a press conference Tuesday, where he said his campus is facing an immediate hold back of over $418,000 and an ongoing cut of $468,000.

Communication Week is a signature event for Missouri State University’s Department of Communication. It focuses on highlighting communication teaching and research, as well as bringing together students, alumni and community members to network.  

This year, the week-long event themed “Make Your Missouri Statement” will take place on campus from Feb. 21-24. 

Historian and scholar Dr. Carter G. Woodson is credited for setting the foundation for what we now know as national Black History Month, observed each February.

In 1926, he launched Negro History Week to bring national attention to the contributions of black Americans throughout history. Then in 1976, during the American bicentennial celebration, President Gerald Ford formally established Black History Month.
