The Class 1 state champion Orrick Bearcat football team was honored in the General Assembly last Wednesday for their second consecutive state title.
Sen. Bill Stouffer furnished pizza for the team, and Rep. Bob Nance brought the drinks. Rep. Nance arranged a tour of the governor’s office and Gov. Jay Nixon spent approximately 15 minutes with the group, congratulating them and talking to them about leadership. (Photo by Tim Bommel)
