Proposed Change to the Special Management Areas Fishing Regulation

PCOA Opposes the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) proposed change to the special Management Areas fishing regulation within Pulaski County, Missouri – Dixon, MO. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) is proposing a major change to the Gasconade River MDC Special Management Area smallmouth bass length limit from the current 18 inch limit down to a 15-inch minimum length limit. The Gasconade River MDC Special Management Area runs approximately 21 miles on the Gasconade River from Riddle Bridge public access down river to Jerome Highway D Bridge. Thousands of anglers from around Missouri and adjoining states travel to Pulaski County’s “Gasconade River MDC Special Management Area” for its great Smallmouth Bass fishing. A reduction from the current smallmouth bass “18-inch length limit” down to a “15-inch minimum length limit” is a step in the wrong direction in maintaining world class "Smallmouth Bass Fishing” within Pulaski County. MDC is seeking public input on the proposed regulation change and will host a series of open houses around the state. A MDC open house will be held in St. Robert, MO, from 6 to 8 p.m. on Oct 5, 2015 at the St. Robert Community Center, 114 J.H. Williamson Drive.

2015 Waynesville High School Homecoming Football Game Will Not Be Televised on Channel 12

The 2015 Waynesville High School Homecoming football game will not be televised on Channel 12 or streamed online. The game is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 2, with a 7 p.m. kickoff.

Due to unforeseen circumstances Tim Wallace, the Waynesville R-VI School District video production instructor and district programmer, will be unable to broadcast the game.

"My apologies to all of our fans and the community for not being able to televise Friday's homecoming game," Wallace says. "My wife has been experiencing medical problems and has been in the hospital since Sept. 17 and will be undergoing another surgical procedure on Friday, Oct. 2. I hope everyone understands that I need to be with my wife at this time."

Tickets for the homecoming game are available for purchase at the gate and senior citizens age 60 and older with an athletic pass are admitted free of charge. The next televised football game is scheduled for Oct. 16 as the Waynesville Tigers host the Kickapoo Chiefs.

VISTA Members Gather Donations for Students

AmeriCorps VISTA members of the Waynesville R-VI School District raised more than $4,700 in school supplies for students in need during the annual Stuff the Bus fundraiser. VISTA members hosted fundraisers during July and August in partnership with Wal-Mart Supercenter and local volunteers to collect needed school supplies for the 2015-2016 school year.

On Aug. 21, 2015, AmeriCorps VISTA Members delivered 150 backpacks filled with school supplies to Waynesville schools. Backpacks were distributed to students in need who might otherwise not have the necessary school supplies to begin the year.

In addition to Stuff the Bus, the Gap Outlet of Osage Beach, Mo., made a generous donation of Gap and Gap Kids clothing and shoes. Judy Lorne, general manager of the Gap Outlet, provided the items in order to support students who are in need of new school clothes. Approximately 10 large boxes of clothing and shoes were donated - valued at approximately $12,500. Gap partnered with Boys and Girls Clubs of America through their "A little charity goes a long way" campaign to provide the donations to the school district. The Waynesville Boys and Girls Club is sponsored through the Waynesville School District's afterschool program, Club TIGER.

Waynesville schools were excited to receive the back to school donations and have begun distributing the items to students who are in need. Dr. Kim Hawk, community resource coordinator for the district, stated that "the district is grateful to have businesses and individuals willing to support our students. Each year many students head back to school without the supplies and clothing they need to be successful. Because of these generous donations, we will be able to equip more students for success in the 2015-2016 school year."

Henry to be Inducted into HIgh School's Hall of Fame

Dr. Brian Henry, superintendent of the Waynesville R-VI School District, will be inducted into the Winnetonka High School Hall of Fame on Friday, Oct. 2, in Kansas City, Mo.

"I am honored to be receiving this award," says Henry. "While I do not feel deserving, I hope that a student at my alma mater can use my example of hard work and perseverance paying off. I was not naturally the best student or the best athlete, but I always worked hard and it made a difference on and off the field."

The Hall of Fame honors and recognizes Winnetonka alumni who exemplify the values, traditions and successes of Winnetonka High School and who, by their accomplishments, will inspire and encourage current Winnetonka students to do the same. Henry is a graduate of the class of 1987.

"I was fortunate to attend the North Kansas City School District because I was blessed with educators who cared about me as a person. During my senior year, I lost my best friend and my parents divorced, and it was my teachers and coaches, as well as the support of my mother, who helped me to persevere. I owe a debt of gratitude to the teachers and coaches who pushed me to do my best," Henry says. "That's why I am so passionate about education. I know that a good education and outstanding teachers and coaches change lives."

The only downside to his receiving this award is that Henry will miss Waynesville's homecoming, but he also is quick to point out that he is practicing what he preaches. "I continually express the importance of serving as a role model in the community and how you just never know who is watching," Henry says. "If one young person back home or here in Waynesville is encouraged by my story, then my time away will be worthwhile."

Henry's career in education includes teaching at Winnetonka, where as a student he was a multi-sport athlete and earned several honors, including the Dennis Balagna Award in football. Henry went on to be a 4-year letterman in football at Missouri Valley College and received all-conference honors, as well as Senior Athlete of the Year while at MVC.

He holds several degrees including a Doctorate in Education from the University of Kansas. Beyond teaching at his alma mater Winnetonka and before joining the Waynesville R-VI School District, Henry served the Camdenton R-III School District as deputy superintendent, assistant superintendent and high school principal. During his 23-year career in education, he has also worked at Park Hill South High School and Oak Grove Middle School. As superintendent of the Waynesville R-VI School District, Henry spearheaded efforts that led to Waynesville High School being the first in the State of Missouri to implement a college readiness program from the National Math and Science Institute. The program resulted in a record number of Waynesville High School students earning AP college credit. The district also annually continues to increase its MAP and APR scores under his leadership.

Henry serves as the Missouri State Commissioner for the Military Interstate Children's Compact Commission, a national commission including all 50 states dedicated to easing transitional issues in schools for children of service members, and is involved in several other projects supporting the children and families of military communities. Henry also serves as chairman of the Sustainable Ozarks Partnership, which is dedicated to the growth of Fort Leonard Wood and the surrounding area.

Henry and his wife, Dr. Kristina Henry, have four daughters Morgan, Madison, Mollie and Mary.

District receives AdvancED Recognition

Tina Woolsey, Missouri Director for AdvancED, presented an AdvancEd plaque recognizing the Waynesville R-VI School District for its accomplishments to Dr. Brian Henry, superintendent, and Dr. Trish Adkins, assistant superintendent of instructional services, on Sept. 21 during the Waynesville R-VI Board of Education meeting. The Waynesville R-VI School District received district-level accreditation through AdvancED, the organization formally known as North Central. This is an international accreditation certifying that the district meets the high standards for educational excellence put forth by AdvancED.

Tina Woolsey, Missouri Director for AdvancED, also presented an AdvancEd plaque to Dr. Brian Henry, superintendent, for advancing excellence in education.
