Nixon to return to Joplin to announce school funding
Mo. Gov. Jay Nixon is returning to Joplin to discuss funding for schools in the tornado-ravaged city.
Thursday afternoon, Nixon is scheduled to visit the Joplin 11th and 12th Grade Center - an empty big-box store that will house the two grades while the high school is rebuilt. He'll be joined by superintendent C.J. Huff and members of the Joplin Board of Education in touring the building and making the announcement on funding for the upcoming school year.
