A Tiger From the Start

Updated: Aug 26, 2020

Talk about an early commitment!

When his infant niece arrived at the airport in 2003, Ted Ayres (JD '72) greeted her with a "MIZZOU Class of 2024" sign held high. Her new parents, Becky (BS HE '84, BS Ed '85) and James (BS BA '94) Swindler, certainly had a lot on their plate — but Becky still had the foresight to save the sign.

Sure enough, Becky found herself digging that sign out seventeen years later. Lindsey Swindler is a KC Chapter scholarship recipient, True Tiger member, and newest member of the Class of 2024... just as her uncle predicted.

Congratulations, Lindsey, and welcome to Mizzou!
