Greg Stringellow, a 2013 Southlake Carroll graduate, has been named to the University of Missouri’s distinguished Mizzou ’39. The coveted award is given annually by the Mizzou Alumni Association Student Board to 39 seniors across all academic disciplines to honor scholastic achievement as well as leadership and service to Mizzou and the community.
Founded in 1839, Mizzou owes its existence to the 900 citizens of Boone County who together pledged more than $117,000 in cash and land in support of the University. This spirit of service, which remains at the heart of the university, is the inspiration behind Mizzou ’39. Honorees are chosen through an extensive selection process that includes applications and interviews with Mizzou faculty, staff and alumni. Those chosen for this award are regarded as the top of their graduating classes and join an exclusive group of alumni.
“The University of Missouri has become my home during the last four years,” Stringfellow said in a press release. “The school has changed my life in many ways, and to think that I was able to give back to the university is extremely humbling. I am so grateful for all of the amazing students and faculty that I have had the pleasure of working with.”
A finance and banking major, Stringfellow established himself as a leader on campus as a Trulaske College of Buisness Student Ambassador, a member of the Cornell Leadership Program and a University of Missouri Football Team staff member. In addition, he was named as one of 14 distinguished freshmen by the secret honor society Omicron Delta Kappa.
