ROGERSVILLE, Mo. -- Governor Jay Nixon tips his hat to the Logan-Rogersville School District for its recent academic success.

The high school ranks high in overall ACT scores and the percentage of graduates who move on to higher education.

But it was the district's recent score of 93.2 percent on the Missouri School Improvement Program (MSIP) 2013 Annual Performance Report (APR) that brought Nixon to the school Tuesday. He told the crowd he wants all Missouri students to have access to a quality education so they can compete in a global marketplace.

"You're not just competing with Kickapoo or Glendale; you're competing with Beijing and Paris and all kinds of other places in the word," he said.

"Within our community, we expect to have a good school and we have a strong tradition and we work hard to maintain that tradition," adds Principal Teresa McKenzie.

The governor also applauded the Logan-Rogersville District for earning Missouri's A+ designation, which allows students to apply for scholarships for two years of tuition and fees at any of Missouri's community colleges.
