Keeping TSU Grads in Kirksville

How to keep Truman State grads in Kirksville is a question that has vexed local officials for years. Dr. Jack Magruder raised the topic at this week’s K-REDI board meeting, saying he’d like to see maybe ten or so graduating seniors choose to stay in Kirksville after completing their studies at Truman State. Perhaps a Chamber of Commerce-led initiative will help. The chamber is looking at setting up a business incubator in town, where potential start-ups can get up and running at fairly low cost.
