Missouri Public Affairs Hall of Fame inductees include former president, former Senator, civic rights leader
A president, senator and newspaper publisher will be the inaugural inductees into the Missouri Public Affairs Hall of Fame. The induction will occur on April 11, 2014.
Harry S. Truman, John C. “Jack” Danforth and Dr. M. Donald Suggs were selected by a committee of 12 for induction during Missouri State University’s annual Public Affairs Conference. They were chosen as citizens with a connection to the state of Missouri who serve as examples of global citizens who define the true essence of public affairs, and act consistently for the benefit of others.
The induction ceremonies will be at the Oasis Convention Center in Springfield. The black-tie dinner event will take place from 5-8 p.m. April 11. Tickets are $35 and go on sale Jan. 13. Strong-Garner-Bauer Law Firm is the official sponsor of the dinner.
