Mr. Copling graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and a Bachelor of Arts degree. While in Columbia, he interned at the State History Society of Missouri (where he worked on a myriad of projects from handling foundational documents in Missouri's history to helping put up exhibits from Mark Twain) and became a lifetime member of Pi Sigma Alpha (Gamma Zeta chapter), the honors Political Science fraternity. 


After graduation, Mr. Copling moved to Nacogdoches, Texas (oldest town in the state of Texas), where he pursued and graduated with a Master of Arts degree in History from Stephen F. Austin State University. His Master's thesis examined the untold stories and forgotten lives of Black Missourians who participated in the Civil War, Spanish-American/Filipino-American/Boxer Rebellion, and World War I. As a graduate student, Mr. Copling taught classes, graded exams and papers, and assisted professors in their courses; created a web database for a project involving historic landmarks in East Texas; and worked with the Geology and Anthropology departments on a project that sought to locate unmarked Black gravesites in Nacogdoches. 


Mr. Copling has previously taught at Illinois Valley Community College, Princeton Junior High/High School, Missouri Baptist University, and Warsaw High School. Currently, he teaches adjunct Political Science courses at State Fair Community college, as well as teaching various Social Studies courses at Tipton High School, including dual credit courses.


In his spare time, Mr. Copling enjoys watching embarrassingly delicious trash TV shows with his wife; drinking way too much coffee and regretting it later in the day; getting caught up on his lengthy reading list and then adding more books because he loves to read; and listening to vinyls. 


Go Cardinals!
