FREE Opportunity for Students: Outdoor Leadership Academy

We are now accepting applications for this year’s GLADE Project (Green Leadership Academy for Diverse Ecosystems), which will be held from June 21st to June 27th. GLADE is an all expenses paid, immersive week of conservation education and leadership development open to students entering the 10th through 12th grades. GLADE has expanded since its inception in 2009, and is now a nationally recognized youth conservation leadership academy. 


During GLADE, Greater Ozarks Audubon Society teams up with Missouri State University and the Missouri Department of Conservation to offer a week-long residential stay for 16 high school students at the Missouri State University Bull Shoals Field Station. With the guidance of conservation professionals, participants will engage in leadership activities, bird banding, reptile and insect research, habitat restoration, water quality monitoring, and a host of other activities. This will provide a unique environment for students to explore career and networking opportunities in an experiential setting along the historic White River, now called Bull Shoals Reservoir. 


We would love to present about GLADE to your class, club or department meeting. Haley Smith attended GLADE in 2009 and is now working in conservation as a team leader coordinating seasonal work with back-country crews in Minnesota, Alaska and Oregon. She can speak about her personal experience at GLADE and opportunities that followed.

Our GLADE Co-Directors, Kendell Loyd (MS) and Rebekah Jenkins (M.Ed) are excited to return for their second year at GLADE. Kendell is a biology teacher at Logan-Rogersville High School, conducts ornithological research with Missouri State University, and is an avid birder. He taught biology lab and ornithology at Missouri State while in graduate school, and has also taught English in China since 2017 as a part of a summer school program. Rebekah has taught biology since 2006 at Ozark High School and instructs students in the International Baccalaureate (IB) program in Environmental Systems and Societies. She also heads the high school’s Science Club Stream Team and the OHS Science Olympiad team.


For the GLADE class of 2020, we are looking for individuals with a love for the outdoors and a desire to impact the world around them. But the key to GLADE’s success is YOU! Ideally, we would like for 1-2 students from your high school to apply. Please ask your curious and interested students if they would like to become GLADE participants this summer. We need you, as the participants’ teachers and mentors, to refer your nature-loving students to us. We depend upon you to help students fill out the online application and encourage them to complete the essay on time. And it is you who writes a recommendation for the student. Applications are due March 27 and can be found here.


We, at GOAS, are proud of our track record with GLADE alumni. You can visit to read some testimonials and find out more about the program. 


Attached is a pdf of a flyer that you can share with students.  Please let us know if we can answer any questions, provide more information, or work with you to schedule a presentation. Thanks so much for your support of this quality youth conservation leadership initiative!

Mercy Medical Explorer Program-2020


  • INDEPENDENT CLINICAL ROTATIONS: The independent clinical rotation schedule is divided into four (4) clinical pathways (neuro, cardiac, surgical and medical) – each session lasting 4 months.  Explorers sign up for the pathway of their choice and then each month at the business meeting, they will self schedule their clinical rotations in that area for the next month based upon their personal schedule.  These clinical rotations provide Explorers a firsthand opportunity to interact with patients, observe clinical procedures, and develop skill in professional communication. 

How to join:

In order to participate in the program, each explorer must:

  • attend a “First Night” meeting (January, May, September)
  • complete and submit an application (available online after First Night Meeting until orientation)
  • attend a mandatory Mercy Medical Explorer orientation (January, May, September)
  • provide copies of immunizations, and vaccinations (mandatory). 


Many Mercy-Springfield Hospital departments serve as sites where healthcare professionals can be observed in their normal work routine and Explorers can interact with individuals in the roles of physician, nurse, pharmacist, respiratory therapist, paramedic, physical therapist, diagnostic imaging specialist, laboratory technologist, and others. Explorers may, but are not required to, participate in limited patient care duties at the discretion of the sponsoring co-worker, patient and student, and within the scope of service.  Certificates of program completion are awarded to those explorers completing 75% attendance of the business meetings and 10 clinical rotations in their clinical pathway during the 4-month session.

Mercy - Alive at 25 - Defensive Driving Course
Proven To Help Teach Young Adults To Drive Safe And Responsibly

Alive at 25 is a highly-interactive course developed by the National Safety Council that helps young adults under the age of 25 take greater responsibility for their driving by focusing on behavior, judgment, and decision making. This free 4-hour classroom course teaches young drivers that there are consequences to their driving behavior and provides the tools for making positive choices.
 What Participants Will Learn

  • People in their age group are more likely to be hurt or killed in a vehicle crash
  • Inexperience, distractions, and peer pressure cause unique driving hazards
  • Speeding, alcohol, and “party drugs” greatly increase their risk of death
  • As a driver or passenger, they can greatly reduce their risk by taking control
  • Committing to changing their driving behavior makes personal, legal and financial sense

Hear From Past Participants
Alive at 25:

  • “Opened my eyes to how dangerous driving really is.”
  • “Made me more aware of what I am able to control in my driving.”
  • “Brings fresh information to the forefront of my mind to help me really be prepared before I hit the road.”

We take a holistic view of our applicants.  They're more than a GPA or standardized test score.  We're looking for students who have a desire to serve and seek an education that is on par with highly selective colleges and universities.   For our top diversity candidates, we offer the Falcon Visitation Experience.  This opportunity gives prospective students an opportunity to spend three days on our campus to get a first-hand look at what United States Air Force Academy life is like.  If you have students who may be a good fit for this program, please have them talk to their admissions advisor ( 

Campus Tours
If you have students who are interested in pursuing an appointment to the United States Air Force Academy and plan to visit the campus, they may wish to participate in an escorted tour and admissions briefing. Offered during the academic year to middle school, high school, and post-high school students, tours can help individuals gain a deeper understanding of the United States Air Force Academy environment. Escorted tours are conducted regularly throughout the academic year and require reservations 14 days in advance. We also offer Game Day tours. After the tour, participants will be allowed to purchase discounted tickets to cheer on our AF Falcons for football, hockey, and men’s and women’s basketball. 

For more on available dates for both tours, please go here ( or call 1-800-443-3864.
