COLUMBIA — Ribbon-cutting ceremonies symbolize a new chapter for Columbia. On Wednesday, Chuck Everitt witnessed his 4,000th ribbon-cutting as Chamber of Commerce Ambassador.
A tree was planted at Battle High School to commemorate Everitt's volunteer work with the chamber. Battle High School football coach Justin Conyers and Missouri football coach Gary Pinkel joined Battle High School athletes in the celebration.
Battle High School’s first senior class won’t graduate until spring 2015. Join us as the Missourian covers the entire school, from grand opening to graduation, and so many stories in between, as the next two years unfold. If you have a story idea about a student or professional at Battle High, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Everitt has also volunteered for more than 40 years with the Columbia Youth Football League. Many of the Battle Spartans at the celebration participated in the league as children.
