Missouri's Lieutenant Governor Mike Parson was on the Northwest Missouri State University campus Wednesday evening as a guest for the Distinguished Lecture Series at the Charles Johnson Theater.

“We are thankful for Lt. Gov. Parson giving of his time during the 2018 legislative session,” Northwest President Dr. John Jasinski said. “We appreciate his ongoing support of higher education and look forward to his talk, which will help continue enhancing the academic environment at Northwest.”

Parson was elected Missouri’s 47th lieutenant governor in 2016, receiving the most votes of any lieutenant governor in state history. Previously, he served the 28th Senatorial District in the Missouri Senate from 2011 to 2017. He served in the Missouri House of Representatives from 2005 to 2011. He also served as Polk County sheriff from 1993 to 2005, and he served six years in the U.S. Army.

During his time in Maryville, Lt. Governor Parson made a stop at the KXCV-KRNW studios. News director John Coffey spoke with him during Thursday's Morning Conversation. Full audio from the interview is available above.
