Jackson, a near cousin of Gunn’s who first visited the campus in his freshman year, decided several years ago that he wanted to go to MSU-Mankato.

    Though they're sad she'd gone, her supporters are glad Emily Gore has landed on her feet. Chiefland High School's varsity volleyball, girls' basketball and girls' track coach was one of many who lost her teaching contract this spring. A Chiefland native and athletic star in her own school days, Gore's local impact was significant as a coach and teacher, and her players and team supporters hated to see her go. “Wherever I end up, I never want to coach against Chiefland,” she told her players at her going-away party last month.

    “We've got some really strong freshmen coming up too.”
