On this edition of Going Public, we talk with Tricia Reinhart, who will be the keynote speaker at this year’s “Power of Women” luncheon to take place next week on the campus of Southeast Missouri State University. As a retired, successful sales management executive and an alum of Southeast, she has a lot of wisdom to impart on college students in the community. Tricia will be attending events in the area and on-campus the week preceding the luncheon.

We sat down with Southeast President Carlos Vargas on Tuesday, March 20, 2018, for our monthly conversation on the television program "Focus on Southeast."

Dr. Vargas told us about his visit with U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill in March where they discussed ways to help keep college more affordable.

The complete interview is available here.

We’re talking today with Rocky Sickmann who works with “Folds of Honor” -- a nonprofit that provides scholarships to the children and spouses of U.S. military men and women disabled or killed in service to their country. He served in the United States Marine Corps for six years and was one of 65 Americans taken hostage in Iran on Nov. 4, 1979. Sickmann remained a hostage for 444 days before being released on January 21, 1981.

The concept of race, religion and politics have been making the news. But it was the incident in Charlottesville that brought the issue to light yet again, leading people to speak out. A descendant of Gen. Robert E Lee, Pastor Robert Lee IV spoke out at this year's MTV Video Music Awards denouncing racism and white supremacy.

Edie Bird from Christ Episcopal Church and Pastor Tyler Tankersley from First Baptist Church.  We’ll their thoughts on Pastor Robert Lee IV comments at the VMA’s, how churches are talking about race, and the acknowledgement of racism. And later on in the show, how do we get to a Jonah moment. I’m Marissanne Lewis-Thompson. Tune into Going Public to hear all that and more right here on KRCU after the news.
