WARRENSBURG - Gov. Jay Nixon's office announced Saturday afternoon that President Barack Obama will join the governor to speak in Warrensburg later this week.
Both the governor and the president will be at the University of Central Missouri on Wednesday to address college tuition increases and Missouri's role within the nation.
"Missouri now leads the nation in holding down college tuition increases, and our highly skilled workforce continues to attract major investments from high-growth industries," Gov. Nixon said.
Gov. Nixon's office told KOMU 8 News the time of the visit will be announced by the White House.
The office also said the governor's Innovation Campus initiative was inspired by the University of Central Missouri, "which offers students accelerated degree programs and apprenticeships in high-demand fields, reducing the time it takes to earn a degree and cutting student debt."
