The folks at Special Olympics Missouri were set to hit a re-building milestone on Friday.
President and CEO Susan Stegeman says its Jefferson City campus building is set to be back under roof.
“Kind of a milestone in the construction phase. So we’re pretty excited to see that progress and I know a lot of Missourians are too as they travel through town and such to say ‘Finally, it’s happening, it’s coming together.'”
The May tornado in Jefferson City did major damage to the Training for Life Campus.
“Everyone’s been really patient and very supportive. We’ve had to do business elsewhere, and we’ve figured out ways to do it. But we are excited for May, June of 2020.”
Special Olympics Missouri announced a new partnership with the University of Missouri System on Wednesday.
