  • This morning there was a post on a local Facebook page that Missouri Western was on lockdown with a possible gunman on campus. This post was NOT accurate. The Law Enforcement Academy was doing some routine training, and we assume this may have prompted the incorrect post. There is no emergency situation on campus at this time. Thank you.

  • Happy Fibonacci Day! It's celebrated on November 23 because when the date is written in the mm/dd format (11/23), the digits in the date form a Fibonacci sequence: 1,1,2,3. A Fibonacci sequence is a series of numbers where a number is the sum of the two numbers before it. For a calendar of math and science-related events and programs, check out our STEM page:

  • #GriffsSaluteToService 2nd Lt Dallas Thomas '18
    Dallas Thomas graduated in May from Missouri Western’s ROTC program. He is currently an active duty Second Lieutenant in Fort Benning Georgia in the Armor Basic Officer Leaders Course. Throughout his time as a Griffon he enlisted as a 12B Combat engineer and worked locally with his Sapper unit, his funeral honor team and his ROTC Battalion.

    His senior year as a Griffon, Thomas was selected for a diplomatic deployment to Argentina for a month where he served with Argentine, Chilean, Uruguayan, Peruvian and other American Cadets from around the states. During this time he attended the Collegio Militar de la Nacion on the east coast of Argentina (Buenos Aires), as well as the Argentine Mountain warfare school in the Patagonia’s. He said the last time a similar diplomatic group had visited Argentina was in 1964.

    Since graduating and commissioning, he has been in ABOLC, learning to lead soldiers in Armored weapon systems, as well as light reconnaissance. In the near future he plans to attend the Army's Reconnaissance school, Ranger school and Airborne school.

    "My time as a Griffon has greatly improved me as a person, and I am so lucky to have been able to maximize on every opportunity I was given. I would be nowhere without my teachers mentors, and fellow classmates who are now lifelong friends. I keep in contact with fellow Griffons who have gone before me and those to come. Part of being a Griffon is sharing in success and the road to it," says Thomas, a native of Gower, Missouri.
    We would like to thank 2nd Lt Thomas and all veterans and active duty military for their service to our country!

  • #GriffsSaluteToService Haliey Cheeney

    Haliey Cheeney is a junior in Missouri Western’s ROTC program. Currently she serves as the company 1SG for the North, which consists of Missouri Western, Benedictine College and Northwest Missouri State University.

    When she graduated from high school, the Dawn, Missouri native considered signing on for active-duty military, but received a scholarship from her community to help pay for her freshman year at Missouri Western. Once on campus, she signed up for ROTC classes, “even though I didn’t know what I was getting into,” she said with a laugh. “But I love it.”

    Cheeney, a health and exercise science major, military science minor, received an ROTC scholarship for her sophomore, junior and senior years, and is also a member of the Missouri Army National Guard.

    Cheeney said that ROTC has opened up many experiences for her, like flying in a Chinook helicopter to field training events, taking on new leadership roles and learning tactical skills. The summer of 2019, she will head to Ft. Knox, KY to participate in her advanced camp training. After she completes advanced camp she will finish her last year of ROTC and then commission in the Missouri Army National Guard as a second lieutenant. She is hoping to serve in the Medical Service Branch in May of 2020.

    We would like to thank Cadet Cheeney and all veterans and active duty military for their service to our country!
