KGCS-TV recognizes members

 KGCS-TV recognizes members"Visions Unlimited," served for more than 20 years at the station and Missouri Southern State University. The volunteers served as part of the Retired Senior Volunteer Program through the Area Agency on Aging.  This special tie between senior citizens and University students resulted in many successful collaborative efforts.





The program began in the fall of 1988

The TV program "Visions Unlimited" first aired in December of 1988. Volunteers produced and aired more than 140 programs on KGCS-TV. Members generated program ideas and carried those ideas through to a completed program. Topics varied - some dealt with issues of interest to senior citizens, but many featured stories about unique people and aspects of living in the Joplin area.

The MSSU Division of Continuing Education provided the early training classes.


"Visions Unlimited" volunteers received a number of awards and special recognition over the years.
