We ain’t the World

Our building is gone. Want anything more?

A Watch reader (in a continuing pattern) has told us another disturbing story about the soul of Missouri Southern’s administration.

You know all the MSSU goodwill from the May 22, 2011 tornado? Well they don’t feel it.

If it is true, and a FOIA request for contracts would determine if it is, MSSU charged the Joplin R-8 school district a pretty penny for use of Young Gymnasium for athletic events.

So much for charity.

We know there are expenses. But was MSSU charging retail on the heels of a tragedy? Let’s see the numbers.

Joplin High School shouldn’t have been a customer. It should have been a guest. And maybe it was. Maybe folks got it wrong to us. But if Joplin was charged full price for access, MSSU isn’t a partner, it is a merchant.

And if that is true, shame on MSSU.
