The following is excerpted from the MU Flagship Council’s Legislative Update:
Kip Kendrick’s Commitment to MU and Columbia
This evening newly elected Rep. Kip Kendrick (D – Columbia) will be on campus to meet with MU Students about issues related to state government that are important to them.
Additionally, Rep. Kendrick is hosting an information session to learn about LaunchCode, a non-profit organization interested in expanding their operations to Columbia. During this session, LaunchCode will share its vision for a partnership with Columbia employers and community leaders to create technology-based apprenticeships and job placement opportunities. We are very grateful to have Rep. Kendrick show such a strong commitment to the University, its students and the City of Columbia.
