Lauren Gann of Hannibal is among the Missouri students who recently attended the Missouri Scholars Academy (MSA) at the University of Missouri.
MSA began in 1985 and provides students unique opportunities to expand their educational and social skills. This year, students spent their time at Mizzou in an intensive classroom setting, studying one of four individually selected subjects, including mathematics, science, social studies and humanities. Each Missouri high school nominated one junior-to-be for the academy; larger schools could nominate more. Nearly every county in the state was represented.
Gann, who attends Hannibal High School, is the daughter of Tonda Gann. She is a member of the Key Club and student council at Hannibal High School.
