College of the Ozarks
A unique 501(c)(3) organization ... with a mission of providing a quality, Christian education to those who are found worthy, but who are without sufficient means to obtain such training. Instead of paying tuition, all full-time students work campus jobs to defray the cost of education. Upon participation in the Work Education Program, the College guarantees to meet the entire Cost of Education for students, allowing them the opportunity to graduate debt free. The College openly discourages debt by not participating in any federal, state, or private loan programs and leads by example through having no institutional debt of any kind ... To achieve this vision, the College has Academic, Vocational, Christian, Patriotic and Cultural goals. (See Veterans Grove and Missouri Vietnam Veterans Memorial)

A 501(c)(3) organization started in early 2006 with a simple idea: Provide hope and new memories to the children of military fallen heroes who have died while on active duty since 9/11. By attending Snowball Express a child can see that "service above self" is honored by others and is a value they should subscribe to as they continue to mature as adults. They also realize they can honor their fallen hero in ways other than by being sad or at a somber place. Snowball Express gives them a piece of their childhood back, allowing them to have fun and that it's OK to laugh.
