Students are not the only ones that attended the exhibit and ceremony.

Get The Red Out 2013

Get the Red Out is the annual street fair that takes place on the section of Holden street near the UCM campus. Vendors of all types line the street in hopes to get students and citizens involved in various organizations, or in order to sell products to the guests.

The street is packed with students and citizens all enjoying the annual event.

Mo Mule stopped by to boost school spirit and to get plenty of hugs from the young ones.

So president Barack Obama made a stop in Warrensburg to talk about the economy on the campus of UCM.

There was limited ‘seating’ so to speak (most people that attended had to stand) so tickets were given out on a first come, first serve basis.
