As noted in Southern Watch and on this blog, the term of Anderson, who succeeded Dwight Douglas as chairman Wednesday night, ends Aug. 30:
Anderson's term expires in September. He is hopeful that he will be reappointed by Governor Jay Nixon so that he can complete his term as president.
Judging from the Times interview, Anderson believes all is well at Missouri Southern:
"We've got a lot of good things going at Missouri Southern," Anderson said. "We just came through the search for a new athletic director, naming Jared Bruggeman, from Northern Arizona University, last week. I was involved in that. We've about got the health center completed, which will be opening next fall. The health science building is about 40 percent completed.
Those good vibes extend all the way to the board, according to the article:
"We have a very workable board. No one has a special agenda," he said.
