CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Community members spoke their mind on what they want to see in their next Southeast Missouri State University president. 

The Wednesday meeting was held at the University Center to discuss possible changes within Southeast and traditions to uphold.

A community open forum was scheduled for foundation, Redhawks club, alumni and community members to ask questions and share their views about what needs to be addressed when considering the next president.

Topics of interest included the importance of athletics, tradition, education, value and more.

Many people agreed that creating programs that show the values of education will not only help the school, but the community as well.

"We can bring people out of poverty through education, that will create an intense link to the university."

Members felt one of the main things in selecting candidates of a president is passion. One who can provide students and alumni with the respect of the community and also to excel students in education.
