Governor Jay Nixon visited Fairview Elementary in Columbia on Wednesday morning. Nixon went back to the school where his mother used to teach.
Nixon was at Fairview Elementary to applaud the academic success of the students.
“We put together a whole new kind of grade card called MSIP 5 and it’s designed to make sure that students are doing well in being challenged and takes it right down to each various school. Today, I’m proud to report that this school on a new grade card…scored 98.6 percent,” Nixon said.
