This story is part of a series done by student reporters called, “Columbia’s Unsung Heroes”. As you can gather by the title, our assignment was to think of and find residents in the city of Columbia, Missouri who make significant, yet underappreciated contributions to the community. Immediately, I thought of the linemen, as whenever their is a nasty storm that kills the power, it is their job to restore it. This piece was edited by Winn Duvall.
This article was part of a series done by student reporters called, “The Collectors” that was an exploration of the most interesting collections Mid-Missouri residents had. I found an integrative anatomy graduate student at the University of Missouri with a dinosaur and animal bone collection. How many bone collectors do you know? The piece was edited by Abbey Dean.
