MSA needs your help! The Missouri legislature is starting to create the budget for 2024. The proposed funding for both MSA and another Missouri program would make the cost of attendance over $1,300 for each future scholar.
So, here is where YOU come in! Help us advocate for full academy funding.
Please send a letter — handwritten or email — to all 14 members of the Missouri House Appropriations Committee. Explain why it’s so important for MSA to be fully funded!
Make sure to share with other MSA friends! BOOMBA thanks!
