A.T. Still University of Health Sciences (ATSU) will light up the Kirksville nighttime landscape on November 8.

ATSU is holding a community celebration for the renovation of Kirksville’s iconic downtown water tower. The event will be held in the parking lot near the Tinning Education Center and Connell Center on the ATSU campus off Jefferson St. This location allows the community to witness the enhanced lighting of the newly painted structure bearing the A.T. Still University name.

“This water tower has long been a landmark for the ATSU campus in Kirksville, and I think its fresh makeover appropriately reflects the medical school’s growing stature in the nation,” said Kirkville Mayor Todd Kuhns.

The event kicks off at 6 p.m. and the lighting will be live on KTVO at 6:10 p.m.  Light refreshments will be provided.

“The collaboration between A.T. Still University and the city of Kirksville continues to be outstanding,” ATSU President Jack Magruder said. “Kirksville is as much a part of the ATSU community as ATSU is a part of the Kirksville community, and this water tower lighting is symbolic of that wonderful relationship.”
