New General/Trauma Surgeon at Liberty Hospital

Clayton Theleman, M.D., has joined The Surgeons Clinic at Liberty Hospital as a general and trauma surgeon.

“Dr. Theleman is an excellent addition to our strong surgical team at Liberty Hospital,” said David Feess, president and CEO of Liberty Hospital. “He brings to us expertise in a variety of surgical procedures, as well as robotic surgeries, and will use our Da Vinci Surgical System to accelerate recovery and minimize patient stays.”    

Dr. Theleman performs both traditional and minimally invasive surgeries. He specializes in trauma surgery, as well as general surgeries including hiatal hernias, colon cancer, complex hernias and more. Dr. Theleman received a medical degree from the University of Kansas School of Medicine and completed a residency at the University of Illinois.

Liberty Hospital is state designated in Missouri’s Time Critical Diagnosis System as a Level II Center in trauma, stroke and STEMI (heart attack) by demonstrating a high level of proficiency and care, with specially trained staff available 24 hours a day to provide treatment for these medical emergencies. It is the first hospital in the Northland to receive this designation in all three specialties.

Clipper yearbook staff members are preparing to sell advertising in the 2019-20 Clipper Yearbook. 

We're excited to share with the community that the 2018-19 Clipper yearbook was recently selected to the Walsworth Gallery of Excellence, which is awarded to approximately the top five percent of the over 4,000 yearbooks that Walsworth publishes across the country. The 2019 "Look at it this way" yearbook also earned a Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) Gold Medalist rating with two All-Columbian marks in the Visual and Verbal categories (948/1000 pts.)

The students are striving to create another excellent product this year and would love your support in order to make this possible. 

We have a circulation of approximately 575 students, which is then multiplied by all the family members and friends who also read the book. Then, when you factor in the longevity of yearbooks, you'll see that this advertising purchase pays off for years to come. 

We have a new option this year to conveniently place your order ONLINE !
( ) If you order online, a student will take the graphics and specs you share with us, and then create an email proof for you to look at and approve. I'm also attaching our traditional paper order form , which you are welcome to mail in to the high school office with "Attention: Karen Johnson" on the envelope. If you prefer face-to-face interactions, we are also happy to send a student to you to pick up the order form and/or meet with you to answer any questions. Please contact us and we will have a student reach out to you and work with you to make sure your advertisement best fits your needs.

We look forward to working with your business and value your support and the real-world learning opportunities you're providing for our students. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
