When a family has 10 children who all study music, it’s natural that some of them might form an ensemble. In the case of the Dickson family, 4 of them not only formed a string quartet, but all entered college at the same time, halfway across the country.
St. Louis Police Chief Dan Isom announced on Monday that he will be stepping down as chief by the end of the year. Isom will join the faculty of the Department of Criminology at the University of Missouri—St. Louis.
Isom, 45, took over as chief four years ago following the resignation of Joe Mokwa, who was linked to an illegal tow-lot scandal.
Speaking on UMSL’s campus, Isom said it was hard to move on after 24 years in the department, but the opportunity to teach at his alma mater was too good to ignore.
