President's Centennial Circle

In anticipation of Missouri Western’s centennial celebration, the President’s Centennial Circle has been established. The President’s Centennial Circle will commemorate the extraordinary donors who have contributed most significantly to the success of the University in its first 100 years and recognize those donors who have made a similar level of commitment toward envisioning its future.

The President’s Centennial Circle recognizes both individuals and organizations that have gifted or pledged in excess of $100,000 to the Missouri Western State University Foundation.  Members of the President’s Centennial Circle are invited to an exclusive, annual celebration and are honored with a plaque as a new member.
