For the first time in SEMO Electric Cooperative's 82-year-old history, the Governor of Missouri and the First Lady visited the cooperative's office in Sikeston. The purpose of Governor Mike Parson's and First Lady Teresa Parson's stop was to announce a $142,000 matching grant for SEMO Electric's fiber project. The funding will help provide service to 60 underserved homes. The state is using federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act money to pay for the broadband funding.
