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.

Joined by several guests, President Trump visited a full Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau, Missouri for a final campaign rally last night before midterm election polls opened across the country today. It was his third rally of the day, and it concluded at approximately 11 p.m.

 

During Monday’s visit, President Trump continued to boost Republican candidate Josh Hawley in the U.S. Senate race against Democratic incumbent Claire McCaskill. He claimed McCaskill’s recent support for border security was one to be short-lived.
