MACC Veteran’s Ceremony


MACC Veteran’s Ceremony - Generational Military Service in the USMC featuring Staff Sergeant Matt Everts, ceremony open to public


Moberly Area Community College will honor veterans at a public ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 9, 2017 at 11 a.m. in the Main Auditorium on the Moberly campus.

The ceremony will include the posting of the colors by MHS JROTC, under the direction of LTC (R) Christopher A. Lambert, Senior Army Instructor.  The National Anthem and additional music will be performed by Denise Caldarello, MACC Trustee.

The featured speaker will be Staff Sergeant Matt Everts, who served in the United States Marine Corps for ten years.  Everts, who was raised in Iowa, began his service in the Marine Corps and graduated from boot camp in San Diego, California.  He completed Marine Combat Training at the School of Infantry in Camp Pendleton, California, and then attended Marine Corps Engineer School at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina for Basic Hygiene Operator.  He was promoted again as a distinguished honor graduate for his exemplary leadership.  Throughout his career, he was well known as an expert marksman.  He competed on the Marine Corps shooting teams at 9th Engineer Battalion in Japan, and the 8th Engineers at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.

Staff Sergeant Everts has served in Japan; Thailand; Puerto Rico; Camp Lejeune, N.C.; Mount Clemens, MI; and the Naval Amphibious Assault Aircraft Carrier USS Bataan.

Everts has been involved in several humanitarian efforts.  He deployed to Sasebo to install and operate twelve reverse osmosis purification units which provided over 60,000 gallons of drinking water to drought stricken villages.  In Puerto Rico, he deployed to assist with hurricane relief efforts. 

Everts has had the honor of being an Inspector and Instructor where he was responsible for activities in the community, such as performing in color guards, wreath laying ceremonies, flag presentations to families at Veteran’s funerals, and the Toys for Tots program.  In this role, he trained over 300 Marines (enlisted and officers) yearly on the rifle and pistol range.

Everts is employed at the City of Moberly, as the Chief Operator of the Water Filtration Plant, where he has been for the past fifteen years. 

Everts met his wife, Stefanie, while serving in Okinawa, Japan.  They have been married for 21 years and have two children.  Stefanie served as a Marine Corps Staff Sergeant for eight years.  She graduated from the MACC Associate Degree in Nursing Program.  Currently, she is a flight nurse with Air Evac Lifeteam. 

Their son, Skylar, who was born on base at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, went to boot camp in August 2016, and is currently a Lance Corporal serving in the Marine Corps at 29 Palms, California.  His Military Occupational Specialty is electronics maintenance.

Daughter, Samantha is currently attending Moberly High School and is planning on becoming a Marine Corps Officer through an ROTC program.

A special invitation is extended to local veterans as well as active duty guard or reserve personnel to gather after the ceremony for light refreshments served by the Alpha Tau Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa.  A Wall of Honor will display MACC students, faculty and staff who are veterans, or are currently serving our nation. The service is open to the public.  Please join us!

MACC Singers to Present Holiday Concert



The MACC Singers will present a concert of Holiday music on Friday, December 8 at 7:00 p.m. in the MACC Auditorium.  The choir under the direction of Karen Werner, Professor of Music, will feature both familiar and newly composed Holiday music.  The choir will be accompanied on piano by Jean Harvey of Keytesville, Missouri. 

The audience will be treated to well-known carols both in traditional arrangements and those arranged with a modern twist.  The Norman Luboff arrangement of the Austrian carol Still, Still, Still and the Carol of the Bells will delight the audience with their familiar melodies and wonderful harmonies.

The audience will be energized by a rhythmic Brant Adams arrangement of Here we come a-caroling,  along with Stacey V. Gibbs arrangement of the spiritual Go, Tell It on the Mountain.  Going back to the 16th century the Renaissance composer Girolamo Conversi’s Now Let Us All With One Accord will have the audience feeling joyful with the song’s dancelike quality.  Also from this time period, but with a more reflective tone, the choir will chant Tomas Luis de Victoria’s O Magnum Mysterium

The popular group Pentatonix have been delighting audiences since they won the show “The Sing Off” in 2011.  The MACC Singers are excited to present two of this group’s a cappella arrangements.  Their arrangement of Silent Night treats this familiar carol with lush harmonies.  Using hand percussion, the choir will also sing Pentatonix’s version of White Winter Hymnal, originally performed by the indie folk band Fleet Foxes.  

The audience will hear a reflective arrangement of Bethlehem, a traditional shape-note hymn from the American songbook known as ‘Southern Harmony’.  This selection will be accompanied by University of Missouri students Miguel Calleja Rodriguez on violin and Daniel Keeler on cello.  This string duo will also accompany O Notte, an original composition by Randall Stroope.  The text of O Notte is based on a sonnet by the great artist Michelangelo combined with a poem by the German literary scholar Friedrich Rueckert. 

Ashlynne Alexander , the 11 year old daughter of former MACC Singer Amanda Alexander, will perform the solo in the Paul Caldwell and Sean Ivory arrangement of Hope for Resolution.  The juxtaposition of a well-known Gregorian chant and a South African anti-apartheid song speaks to us to find our potential towards a peaceful coexistence. 

Following the concert there will be a reception of hot spiced cider and Holiday goodies in the Gary D Steffes Conference Room in the Main Building of the MACC campus.  Tickets for the concert may be bought at the door for $5.00 (adults).  All students and MACC faculty/staff are free.

Local Artist featured at MACC Jorgenson Gallery


Local Artist featured at MACC Jorgenson Gallery

The Jorgenson Fine Arts Gallery at Moberly Area Community College is currently featuring a local artist in a new show entitled Communication Device: Works by R-Q/Bryan Helton. The community is invited to meet the artist at a free reception on Friday, October 13, from 5 to 7pm.


Helton was born in Adair County in 1961. While he remembers being punished for not coloring the same as other children in grade school, it was an art instructor at MACC in 1979 who challenged him to explore the boundaries of what Helton could produce. That encouragement led to a first place showing in the Little Dixie Art League in 1980. Helton followed the muse of his art, first to Columbia, MO, working with paper and sound collage in advertising and live theater, before ultimately moving to New York City.

Based across the Hudson in New Jersey, Helton worked throughout the city, becoming the first on-staff artist at Kate’s Paperie, one of New York’s fine paper stores. Working with handmade papers from around the world, Helton taught paper and package design, lectured at Parsons school of Design, the Fashion institute of Technology, School of Visual Arts, and the Pratt Institute. His work graced a variety of showcases, including appearances on Martha Stewart’s network show.

While his professional work grew, Helton’s personal work continued as well. In the 90s, he was chosen to represent new art in America in San Jose, Costa Rica for the Ministry of Culture and appeared in a Japanese TV documentary on washi, a specific style of Japanese paper making. His works have sold worldwide under his alter ego R-Q, a pop international artist.

In 2002, Helton moved back home to start a new chapter and opened the Odd Pear, an eclectic store offering collectibles and antiques, in downtown Moberly. His artistic work continues using mixed medium, paper, acrylic, and colored pencil. His exhibit includes some of his latest works along with pieces from his past.

“I’ve moved into a place where I allow the paint to create its work,” said Helton. “This exhibit is a primitive communication device of a now grown child without words to explain. I’ve left my works untitled to allow the viewer to draw their own conclusions.”

The Jorgenson Fine Arts Gallery, named in honor of MACC President Emeritus Dr. Evelyn E. Jorgenson, was created as part of the remodel of the historic MACC Coliseum in 2002. The wing provides an updated and expanded space for Graphic Arts & Fine Arts programs, including lab space, classrooms, and studios. The Gallery hosts rotating exhibits throughout the year featuring the work of national and international artists as well as local high school and MACC student work. The Gallery is open to the public Monday through Thursday from 7AM to 8:30PM and on Friday from 7AM to 4PM.
