Show Me My Future a Success!

THANK YOU to all MOACAC members for your support of our first ever Show-Me My Future virtual college and career program! As a reminder, all session recordings are still available here.

A few highlights from the Show-Me My Future program:

  • 183 sessions representing 100+ national and international organizations
  • 6800 registered students and 2600 attendees from 385 high schools covering every corner of Missouri (we were among the top ACAC affiliates in participation, showing more involvement than some larger affiliates)
  • 285 school counselors, IECs, CBOs and other professionals attended
  • 86% of attendees rated the sessions "above average" or "excellent"
  • Class of '21 and '22 represented 75% of registrations
  • Missouri was the only ACAC affiliate to provide sessions for career, military and non-college pathways

Revenue generated from this program will enable MOACAC to continue to provide student programming and scholarships and professional development opportunities this year.

In Memory of Braxton Rethwisch

 

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Braxton Rethwisch, For more than 50 years, Braxton served as an Admission Counselor at Central Methodist College, his alma mater, lovingly ushering in generations of prospective students. Braxton served MOACAC in various capacities over the years, most notably as our long-time legislative chair and champion who advocated for students and our profession in both Jefferson City and Washington, D.C.

Braxton leaves behind his wife, Judy, his children, Carter and Christine (Patrick) Nigh, and several grandchildren.

Good friends and colleagues, Diane Drilling, Drury University, and Mary Giunta, Affton High School, have shared their thoughts about Braxton's impact on their lives here.

Remembrances and Tributes for Braxton Rethwisch
