A proud Missouri tradition meets with its conclusion.

Tragic local news:

“Wentworth Military Academy and Junior College in Lexington, MO, will be closing on 5/31/17, after 137 years.”

Confirmation and a letter detailing the close:

Closer look.

Text . . .

“We regret to inform you that Wentworth Military Academy and College will be closing on May 31, 2017, the end of this semester. Declining revenues and increased costs made it impossible for Wentworth to continue providing a level of education and services expected, while remaining financially viable . . .

“Although this decision is extremely disappointing to all of us, we are proud that for 137 yars Wentworth achieved its mission to help its cadets and students obtain knowledge and develop character. We hope that the memories and relationships that you developed at Wentworth will continue far into the future.”

Co-signed . . .
