STEVEN GREGG, a senior at Exceptional Pupil Cooperative of the Ozarks and Stockton R-2 Schools, was recently selected as a delegate to the 2019 Missouri Youth Leadership Forum. 

Gregg is the son of Jodie and Richard Gregg of Fair Play. 

“I am so proud of the accomplishments Steven has made,” EPCO Director Pat O’Neal said in a news release. “He is an amazing young man.”

The forum goes from July 16 to 20 at the University of Missouri, Columbia. 

Gregg serves as EPCO student body president, is a Bolivar City Fire Department fire explorer and is a Special Olympics of Missouri silver medalist for basketball. 

“Steven is an exceptional student,” EPCO teacher Johnnie Carnelison said in the release. “I am so proud of this young man.”

During the forum, delegates and staff will participate in a community service project to give back to our community. This year, staff and delegates will collect items to support Rainbow House, an organization aimed at keeping children safe and supporting families in crisis. 

The Missouri Youth Leadership Forum is hosted by the Governor's Council on Disability and Paraquad.
