The morning of Sept. 22, Coach Mike Corn and the Columbia State Chargers baseball team spent the day in Nashville at Rose Park working with boys and girls who have Down syndrome and other physical challenges. During the event, the team played games with the kids and helped them practice hitting and other skills.
“It’s great to have opportunities for our student athletes to give back to the community. We want them to realize that there is more to life than baseball,” Corn said. “I am very proud of how they interacted with the group of young people."
In an effort to support awareness and education of domestic violence, Columbia State faculty, staff and students signed and decorated a rocking chair, participating in an initiative hosted by the General Federation of Women’s Clubs Spring Station Woman’s Club.
“It was exciting to see that so many people signed the chair,” said Dr. Christa Martin, assistant to the president for access and diversity. “More than 312 people added their names to the chair, so I am confident that we expanded awareness of domestic violence across the campus.”

The Civil War Trust recently held their annual conference in Nashville and invited Columbia State Assistant Professor of History Thomas Flagel to give the keynote address at their annual dinner. Flagel’s talk was titled “Finding Our Collective Appomattox: The Search for Peace at the End of the American Civil War,” an examination of how preserved battlefields became sites of solace for veterans and civilians searching for peace and belonging, a role that he sees continuing to this day. The presentation went so well that the Civil War Trust is having Flagel write an article for their periodical Hallowed Ground.
