MU students said their final goodbyes Jarrett Mosby Friday night. Mosby was shot and killed in Madison, Ill., just two days before Christmas.

Mosby was from Collinsville, Ill., and enrolled in the Trulaske College of Business. He was expected to graduate in May with a degree in business management.

A petition completed its first step Wednesday – a movement  to allow students to vote on their university governing boards. This means students are one step closer to reaching the November 2014 ballot. 

St. Louis Attorney, Brad Ketcher, filed the petition.  He said students should have a vote.

“I think it’s very important that students have a full voice on those boards,” Ketcher said.  “Students are spending more and more of their resources on tuition and fees, and a lot of times having to take out student loans for those sorts of obligations.”

Parents with students in the Columbia Public School District may have easier access to their child’s school records in the upcoming school year.
