As a former director at the Springfield Chamber of Commerce and a current small business owner, Lindsay Haymes is  invested in local business. To keep up, she follows  accounts about the workforce and talent pipeline, local government and tourism.


“The region’s premier high school career exploration program. The big things these juniors and seniors accomplish and the passions they develop with their business partner projects and experiences each year are phenomenal. #dailyinspo”


“President of Missouri State University. Although it can feel a little stalker-ish knowing where Clif is hour-by-hour, his account is great for major education and workforce happenings on campus and across Missouri, hilarious ‘GO BEARS!’ gifs and exchanges with the genius behind @MissouriState. And bonus: You get first notice of the new shows coming to @HammonsHall.”


“The giant piece of anthropomorphic steel art on the Springfield square. Known best for anonymous, snarky and fairly adept City Council and other #sgf commentary and notifications of good weather in @downtownsgf.”


“Top of the Rock is my favorite sunset spot in all of Missouri. This Twitter account is chock full of gorgeous outdoors imagery, letting me daydream about my next visit to Big Cedar and keep tabs on all Mr. Morris is developing down south.”
