Dr. Allen Moss, superintendent of the Houston School District, visits with judges recently with the Missouri Community Betterment Program about a successful bond issue earlier this year that will lead to the construction of a new gymnasium and other improvements on campus. The judges heard about several projects completed in the last year at Houston. Winners will be announced Monday.

Members of Community Betterment and Arts Council of Houston and those associated with its youth organization will attend a statewide conference today and Monday in Mexico, Mo.

Participating communities will be recognized at the 56th annual MCB conference at Heritage Fields at Mexico. Community members and youth will attend information educational sessions and the awards competition where the winners of the adult and youth leadership awards, community awards and community youth group awards will be recognized.

This year’s event will feature a new activity — Town Square Fair. The event allows towns to showcase what makes their community unique, about its history and how it has framed the community and current efforts to move things forward.

Houston is a finalist in its population category.

Missouri Community Betterment judges visited Houston earlier as part of the annual awards competition.

During the visit, judges saw local community projects showcased since the last awards competition. Last year, Houston won first in its population category for the town and youth programs.
