Bill O’Reilly, accomplished author and host of The O’Reilly Factor, was a guest at College of the Ozarks in October 2013. During his speech at the Keeter Athletic Complex, he challenged College of the Ozarks students to work hard and be leaders, which is not always easy.
Staff Sergeant Daniel Barnes and his family received special recognition for his military service and sacrifice.
The School of the Ozarks Pitch in for Patriots™ Club made it possible for Staff Sergeant Barnes to receive a Trackchair by raising money in the community.
Referencing his first job at an ice cream parlor, Dr. Davis presented Mr. O’Reilly with a monogrammed apron from the Keeter Center’s own Nettie Marie Creamery.
