TV Station Honored for Education Coverage

KGCS – the television station at Missouri Southern – received statewide recognition this fall from the Missouri State Teachers Association.

The station received the Media Awards for Television General Coverage/Honorable Mention, which was presented for “excellent coverage of education.” Kisa Clark, a lecturer in the Department of Communication, accepted the award during a recognition dinner on Sept. 21 in Springfield.

Programming during the last year at KGCS included segments on education on “Newsmakers,” replays of Joplin School Board meetings and a candidate forum for candidates seeking spots on the board.
