Lost & Found Grief Center
Lost & Found Grief Center is partnering with both local hospitals and several other non-profits to offer groups to families who are struggling with a serious illness or life-changing medical event. Groups are for children ages 5-18 whose parent/caregiver has recently had a life-changing medical event, illness, or diagnosis. This can include head injuries that left the parent impaired, or illness in which the family is now adjusting to treatments (even if the prognosis is good), or a potentially terminal diagnosis. Our purpose is to provide a setting in which children can talk about their worries/fears, learn to communicate with parents, & learn about medical terminology.
For more information contact Lost & Found at 417-865-9998.

United States Air Force Academy
Junior year is when the application process (http://www.academyadmissions.com/admissions/the-application-process/application-steps/) to the United States Air Force Academy truly begins. Students will start by filling out the Pre-Candidate Questionnaire, which becomes available online March 1 every year and starts the application process. When a student is ready to begin the application, they can visit the Pre-Candidate Questionnaire online (https://admissions.usafa.edu/gateway/gateway.aspx). Between March 1 of their junior year and December 31 of their senior year, they must also request nominations (http://www.academyadmissions.com/admissions/the-application-process/nominations/) from their state’s congressional representative(s) or other designated nominators.
Who Are We Looking For?
The United States Air Force Academy strives to create a highly qualified and truly diverse cadet wing at the Academy each year. In addition to diversity in terms of race, ethnicity and gender, we are looking to expand our applicant pool across individual characteristics defined by our diversity definition, including:
- Personal life experiences, including having overcome adversity by personal efforts
- Geographic background, such as region, rural, suburban, urban
- Socioeconomic and educational background, such as academic excellence and/or whether an individual would be a first generation college student
- Cultural knowledge and language abilities, with particular emphasis on cultures and languages of strategic importance to the Air Force
- Work background, including prior enlisted service
- Physical abilities, including athletic prowess
- Age, though applicants must be within statutory parameters for academy attendance
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 (http://www.academyadmissions.com/admissions/outreach-programs/find-your-admissions-liaison-officer/).
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 (http://www.academyadmissions.com/visit-the-academy/escorted-tours/) or call 1-800-443-3864.
