Congratulations 2019 Mizzou 18 & Mizzou 39 Honorees

In the spirit of service, first modeled by the University’s founding families in 1839, the Mizzou Alumni Association Student Board presents the Mizzou 18 and Mizzou 39 Awards. These awards are dedicated to honoring University of Missouri graduate and undergraduate students in the last year of their degree eligibility. The honorees represent a variety of majors, activities and organizations from across campus. Each winner also chooses a faculty or staff member to recognize as their adviser throughout their college career.

Four MU College of Education students were among the honorees.

Mizzou 18 recipients are chosen for their world-class research, collaboration with faculty and staff, and their demonstrated leadership with undergraduate students. Mizzou 39 recipients are chosen for their academic achievement, leadership and service to Mizzou and the community.

This year’s honorees were announced Tuesday, Feb. 26, during a reveal ceremony at Traditions Plaza on the University of Missouri campus.
