Governor Nixon Attends State Summer Games

By Mandi Ballinger

Governor Nixon is a fan of Team Missouri!

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon attended the Opening Ceremony of our State Summer Games. He mingled with law enforcement, gave words of encouragement to Team Missouri in preparation for the USA Games, and addressed the crowd at the Opening Ceremony. One of his initiatives is to encourage physical activity by taking advantage of Missouri's trail and state parks system. He inspires us all to get moving!
