“Suzanne worked tirelessly with our program manager and production personnel, raising the bar with professionally produced underwriting spots,” said KMST Station Manager Wayne Bledsoe at the picnic, thanking Vaughan for her hours spent recording the spots and serving as guest host. “She is a great individual with a very professional radio voice. We will truly miss her.” Vaughan and husband Jay Goff, former Missouri S&T vice provost and dean of enrollment management, recently moved to the St. Louis area.


KMST members enjoyed a large selection of foods and desserts, including meats from Swiss Meat and Sausage Company of Hermann, Mo., and chicken from Lee’s Chicken of Rolla.

Children attending the KMST picnic enjoyed the inflatable obstacle course provided by Hi Striker of St. James.
