Gov. Eric Greitens/Parker Briden

Missouri Governor Eric Greitens made a trip to Monroe County Monday to talk about bringing internet access to all Missouri schools.

Greitens visited students and school officials in Holliday to announce a partnership between the state and the private sector to initiate a program to enable every public school in the state to build the infrastructure necessary for quality internet access.

Greitens says the partnership, which resulted in $45-million dollars in funding for the program, will enhance learning opportunities for Missouri's school kids at no expense to individual school districts.
