COE Chair Ball, Representative Clay, EOA President-Elect Zalite
To welcome in the 2016 New Year, the Council for Opportunity in Education Board Chair, Trent Ball and Educational Opportunity Association President-Elect, Valdis Zalite attended an event at Harris-Stowe State University to participate in the VIP program for the 30th Annual Statewide Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Kick-off Program for Missouri.
During their visit, Mr. Ball and Mr. Zalite were able to thank Senator Blunt, Representative Cleaver, and Representative Clay for their support of TRIO and EOP programs in addition to taking a few photos. During the discussion, Representative Clay reminded them that he has always been a TRIO supporter!
We greatly appreciate our congressional leaders who support and advocate for TRIO and EOP programs; this is a great start to our 2016 advocacy efforts!
