Central Missouri Tomorrow
Missouri's KATY Trail
October 12 and 18 at 8 p.m.
Missouri's Katy Trail State Park is a ribbon of crushed limestone that stretches 240 miles. It cuts across Central Missouri in an old rail bed from its beginning in Clinton to its end on the east side of the state near St. Charles.
In episode four of Central Missouri Tomorrow host Chuck Ambrose, president of the University of Central Missouri, visits with civic and government leaders and a business owner as he rides the Katy trail from Sedalia, through Boonville, and on to the Missouri river town of Rocheport.
On the trip, he speaks with Elaine Horn, the mayor of Sedalia. In Boonville he meets up with Bill Bryan, director of Missouri State Parks. And at his final destination in Rocheport he is welcome by Larry Horning, owner of Trailside Cafe and Bike Shop.
Chuck Ambrose, Host
Chuck Ambrose assumed the presidency of the University of Central Missouri in 2010, bringing to the post a commitment to service learning and a focus on student success and community involvement.
During his first year at UCM, he has led, along with leadership from a cross-section of the campus community, a successful academic and administrative reorganization in response to the current economic climate for higher education. The result is increased efficiency in the use of available resources, while continuing to improve the overall college experience of the UCM student.
A strong advocate of servant leadership, Ambrose and his wife, Kris, a former golf professional, put a national spotlight on breast cancer research with the Ride for the Ribbon. The 1,000-mile bike ride and campaign raised awareness and more than $200,000 for breast cancer research and education.
