St. Louis Community College-Meramec unveiled the latest addition to the Alumni Portrait Project on June 17 with the addition of Mo. Rep. Rick Stream (R-Dist. 94), who has served in the Missouri House since 2006.
A lifetime resident of Kirkwood, Stream graduated from Kirkwood High School in 1967 and from St. Louis Community College in 1969 with an associate degree in business administration. Prior to his election to the Missouri House of Representatives, Stream served for 29 years as a budget and project manager for the U.S. Department of Defense, Army Aviation and Logistics Commands and was a U.S. Navy officer from 1971-75. He has also been involved in community activities, ranging from PTO President at Keysor Elementary to president of the Kirkwood School Board.
The Alumni Portrait Project at STLCC-Meramec began several years ago with a few students. It now includes more than 25 portraits across campus honoring alumni who have succeeded in a variety of areas, including professional achievement and service to their communities. Past honorees include sportscaster Doug Vaughn, professional baseball player David Freese, entertainer Todd Newton and founder of “Nurses for Newborns” Sharon Rohrbach.
Four of Stream’s brothers also attended St. Louis Community College. Fittingly, Stream’s portrait is located in the Student Center building near Campus Life, where the Student Government Association and clubs regularly meet.
