"Sikeston has experienced some exciting growth in numerous areas. Our continuing education opportunities are the best they have ever been; the Southeast Campus is at an all-time high for enrollment and is now offering four-year degree options, as well as the recent announcement of a major land donation for the development of a state-of-the-art Three Rivers campus here. There has been recent expansion at the Kenny Rogers Children's Center, retail continues to increase, our hospital is adding services and facilities, and community development programs for our families have been strengthened. Overall, we have a lot to be proud of and excited about here in Sikeston."
