Financial planner, veterinarian appointed to Missouri State board

The next time the governing board of Missouri State meets, there will be two new faces.

Gov. Mike Parson appointed Travis Freeman, of Chesterfield, and Melissa Gourley, of Mountain Grove, to the MSU Board of Governors. They will serve until Jan. 1, 2029.

Their first meeting is Sept. 20 over Zoom. One of their first tasks will be to help assemble a search committee to select the university’s 12th president.

“They are great appointments. I know both of them,” said MSU President Clif Smart in an interview with the News-Leader.

This week, Smart announced plans to retire at the end of the academic year.
