A study by the Center for Rural Strategies at Mississippi State has shown a significant growth in Teton County’s college graduates over the past 40 years.  According to Assistant Professor Robert Gallardo, 17.5 percent of those over the age of 25 in Teton County had college degrees in 1970.  By 2010, nearly 50% of the adults here had completed college.  That’s greater than the national average of 27.9% in 2010 and a statewide rate of 23.6%.  However, Judith Stallmann, an economist at the University of Missouri says one of the problems that rural areas face is that in order to get a college education, young people usually have to leave the area – and once they do, it introduces them to opportunities they might not have seen had they not left.  Then they don’t return.  That’s because there aren’t jobs that demand such education.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
