Jackson police have arrested a female juvenile in connection with a terrorist threat to Jackson High School. 


The arrest comes after the Jackson R-II School District dismissed students shortly after the start of school this morning due to an alleged threat to the high school via social media. Buses began taking all Jackson R-II School District students home at 9:00 a.m.

In Fall of 2019, 70% of new students will be able to receive the Copper Dome Scholarship, a new scholarship system at Southeast.

Vice president for finance and administration, Kathy Mangels says this system will change the criteria of ACT and SAT scores, and will make scholarships stackable, meaning a student can use several scholarships at the same time, while keeping federal financial aid.

In the fall of 1938 Mark Scully was named the principal of Jackson High School in Jackson, Missouri. Young Mark Scully said that his days as principal and teacher in Jackson were some of the most enjoyable of his 47 year career. Well…all but one.

Early one morning in the late autumn of 1941, Scully opened the door to the high school and immediately recognized the powerful odor of a skunk – the smell penetrating every corner of the building.

To enhance professional development, Southeast faculty members are taking time out of their schedules to meet for book studies.

Groups of approximately 15 faculty members from multiple departments meet every Tuesday or Wednesday for five to six weeks to discuss ideas mentioned in books and how to apply those ideas at Southeast. Themes include anti-racism, balancing life and work and the importance of a well-rounded education.

The Center for Speech and Hearing at Southeast Missouri State University was recently awarded a grant that provides training and resources to enable the center to provide services to patients suffering from Parkinson's. The program is called "Speak Out!" and Dan Woods spoke with Amy Herren, Clinic Coordinator with Southeast's Center for Speech and Hearing. The program is offered at no cost, thanks to the grant.
