COLUMBIA — Last week's best images by Missourian photographers included Maya Angelou speaking to a sell-out crowd, members of the military honoring fallen veterans and the U.S. Army Golden Knights parachuting into Memorial Stadium during halftime of Missouri's game against Syracuse.

In this photo by Jaime Henry-White, Maya Angelou speaks to a crowd Monday at the Missouri Theatre as part of One Mizzou Week. Angelou told the sold-out crowd about the people and events that she considered "clouds" and rainbows" in her life.

In this photo by Jaime Henry-White, Toni Kazic points out on a map how the proposed Grindstone Trail will cut into nature and residential properties. The Columbia Parks and Recreation Commission approved the trail funding on Wednesday.

In this photo by Kayla Kauffman, Steven Wieman climbs on top of the digger of a boom truck to create a hole for a streetlight Tuesday on U.S. 63. A new interchange on U.S. 63 that leads to the Columbia Regional Airport was set to open Friday.

Stuart Palley captured this photo of a member of the U.S. Army Golden Knights parachuting into Memorial Stadium during halftime of the Missouri-Syracuse game Saturday. The Golden Knights performed during halftime to express thanks to a team of medical professionals who treated a Golden Knights member.
