Ron Houston, a Maryville resident and president of J.L. Houston Co. in Hopkins, gave Northwest Missouri State University a $1.3 million gift, and the University’s Board of Regents agreed to recognize his gift by naming the institution’s performing arts complex in his honor. In addition to being the lead donor for the Studio Theatre, Houston has been a longtime Northwest supporter. His contributions through the Northwest Foundation have funded the Ronald A. Houston Scholarship for students graduating from North Nodaway public schools and attending Northwest as well as a new sound system and projector in Mary Linn Auditorium. He was also a member of the Northwest Foundation Board of Directors for six years, where he was co-chair of the finance committee.
The Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts, as the facility will now be known, includes the Mary Linn Auditorium, constructed in 1984, and the Studio Theatre, a 5,500-square-foot facility completed in 2008.

Owned and maintained by the city of Maryville, Mozingo Lake is used primarily as a resource supplying drinking water to the residents of the community. Once completed the city of Maryville formulated plans to use the surrounding land and create a 3000 acre recreational haven to service the local residents. Mozingo Lake itself includes a 3000 acre impoundment with 26 miles of shoreline.
A Slice of Mozingo History …
The Mozingo Lake facility began construction in 1991 when the dam was created across the Mozingo Creek Valley and the lake basin plus shoreline areas were cleared of most standing timber. Main construction activities were completed in 1992 then existing farm ponds located in the impoundment area were stocked with panfish and catfish. From 1993 to 1996 bass, bluegill and walleye respectively were introduced into Mozingo. Ongoing fisheries management program is maintained by the Missouri Department of Conservation helping make Mozingo Lake one of the best sport fisheries in northwestern Missouri.
