Missouri Press Association recognizes collaboration with The Missouri Bar

Millie Aulbur MPA awardFor 15 years, The Missouri Bar has partnered with The Missouri Press Association to publish law-related educational content in newspapers throughout the state. Under the direction of Millie Aulbur, director of citizenship education at The Missouri Bar, more than 128 civic education features have been distributed to readers, specifically school-age children, on topics ranging from the Bill of Rights and voting to Civil Rights and landmark Supreme Court cases.

During the Missouri Press Association and the Associated Press Day at the Capitol March 2 in Jefferson City, Missouri Press Education Director Dawn Kitchell recognized Aulbur and The Missouri Bar for this work.

“Millie, thanks to you and The Missouri Bar, we believe Missouri’s newspapers have made a significant impact on educating not just young readers, but their teachers, parents, grandparents and other newspaper readers, on the most vital aspects of our country’s founding and civic evolution,” Kitchell said.
