hanks to many people who love Columbia College and can envision an exciting future to complement our proud history, there are wonderful things happening. As our cover photo hints, we are celebrating two incredible national honors. The first is senior Diana Lynde’s selection as the National Collegiate Honors Council Student of the Year in October. She was chosen for the top award from among 2000 students from the most prestigious honors programs in the United States. Even more remarkable is that this award has come to a Columbia College student two consecutive years! Last year, you may remember, Homa Hassan ’10 brought home the medal to complete her long list of undergraduate honors. This November, we learned that our own Dr. John Zubizarreta has been selected as the CASE and Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching U. S. Professor of the Year. The award name is a mouthful, but make no mistake, this honor is an eminent national award among colleges and universities, and a first for South Carolina. “Dr. Z.,” as we all know him, joins elite company representing the best in undergraduate teaching and mentoring in the United States. The award ceremony in Washington, D.C., was a thrilling recognition for him and for Columbia College on the national stage. His distinguished work as the director of the Honors Program urges into the spotlight our brightest students, of whom Diana Lynde ’11 and Homa Hassan ’10 are shining examples. We are so proud of them all. Closer to home wonderful things have been happening, too. The first thing that will catch your eye if you visit the College is the beautiful new landscaping that was made possible by a gift from Janice Suber McNair ’59 and Bob McNair. The design was developed to provide a variety of plants with rotating seasonal color and low maintenance demand. From the stately palm trees on the library mall to the lacey Japanese yews in front of Spears Center for the Arts to the silver artemesia along the green, hundreds of new plants welcome visitors to campus and lighten the hearts of those of us who are here day after day. The latest new development in the J. Drake Edens Library is the Collaborative Technologies Lab provided by a gift from the late Nell Williams Overton ’43. It consists of eight stations each of which has five chairs, a PC, a 37-inch screen and a switch, which allows the users to connect a laptop to the screen. This room is ideal for group work and group projects, and the room is also equipped with a SMARTBoard for instruction. This beautiful space has proven very popular with students and faculty alike. As you will see in this issue of Columns, the College now needs alumnae who love the College to step forward to transform Asbury Hall. In the years that have passed since the hall opened in 1965, the lives of college students have changed with increased demands for technology and collaborative learning. Unfortunately, Asbury has changed over those years, too, but not for the better! As it has aged, it has become harder to convince students that it offers them an adequate living and learning space. Fortunately, two dedicated alumnae, Ellen Claussen Davis ’72 and Nancy Cummings Humphries ’72, have volunteered to lead the way as we invite you to help Asbury Dress The Part!

Meet the U.S. Professor of the Year Dr. John Zubizarreta

The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) have named Dr. John Zubizarreta, professor of English and director of honors and faculty development, as the Undergraduate Baccalaureate Colleges U. S. Professor of the Year. The award was presented at a special ceremony held in Washington, D.C., on November 18. This marks the first time that a South Carolina professor has been selected for this prestigious national honor. “What an extraordinary honor for Dr. Zubizarreta and Columbia College. This is an important first for our College and South Carolina. It is also the first time that both the U. S. Professor of the Year and the National Collegiate Honors Council Student of the Year have been selected in the same year at the same institution. This affirms what we have known all along, that the quality of academics at Columbia College is of the highest caliber, and our Honors Program is second to none,” said President Whitson. The U.S. Professors of the Year program salutes the most outstanding undergraduate instructors in the country—those who excel as teachers and influence the lives and careers of their students. It is recognized as one of the most prestigious awards honoring undergraduate teaching. “Dr. Z.,” as he is known to the campus community, has been a member of the Columbia College faculty for 22 years and has served as the director for the Honors Program for 19 years. He calls honors a “jewel” in his career, which has benefited from his long-term commitment and active involvement with the National Collegiate Honors Council. Zubizarreta describes Columbia College as the place where his teaching “blossomed.” He said, “It’s an environment that emphasizes collaborative learning and discussion-based teaching. It’s one of the great values of a women’s college, and that coincided with the kind of teacher that I wanted to be.” In life outside the classroom, Zubizarreta describes himself as an avid telemark skier and fisherman; an overly ambitious, aching runner; a former six time national champion in whitewater canoe competition; a moonstruck husband; and the adoring father of two girls. Zubizarreta was nominated for extraordinary dedication to undergraduate teaching and selected for his impact on and involvement with undergraduate students. The award criteria also cite the nominee’s scholarly approach to teaching and learning; contribution to undergraduate education in the institution, community and profession; and support from colleagues and current and former undergraduate students.

Since 1982, CASE and Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching have co-sponsored the program, which is structured to award national winners in four categories based on the Carnegie Foundation’s classification of higher education institutions: baccalaureate colleges; community colleges; doctoral and research universities; and master’s universities and colleges. Competition for the U.S. Professors of the Year takes place in several stages. Each candidate must first be selected from many qualified peers at his or her own institution and nominated for the award. Letters of support and endorsements from current and former students, colleagues and presidents or academic deans accompany the entries.   From about 100 semifinalists, six finalists in each of the four categories, The Carnegie Foundation panel, which includes a student, a former U.S. Professor of the Year, and education association and campus representatives, selects the national winners.   The national winners each receive a $5,000 cash award from The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. TIAACREF, one of America’s leading financial services organizations and higher education’s premier retirement system, is the principal sponsor for the awards ceremony. Phi Beta Kappa, an academic honor society, sponsors an evening Congressional reception.

Diana Lynde ’ll Chosen as National Collegiate Honors Student of the Year College Honors Program Brings Home Top Award Second Consecutive Year


olumbia College senior Diana Lynde, of Columbia, S.C., was chosen as The National Collegiate Honors Council Student of the Year. The National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC) award comes with a cash prize and special medallion, conferred at the 2010 annual national convention held in Kansas City, Missouri. Established in 1966, NCHC is the leading honors organization in higher education. The 1200 NCHC members represent honors programs and colleges in private and public, two- and four-year institutions, including international universities.This is the second consecutive year that a Columbia College honors student has received this prestigious award —last year Homa Hassan '10, also of Columbia, S.C., brought home the award. NCHC selects one student nationwide each year for this prestigious award. The nomination process is highly selective, and nominees represent the best and brightest students from honors programs and colleges across the United States. Each nominee is an exemplar of academic excellence; service to her or his institution and community; and leadership within local, regional, and national honors circles.


“I’m thrilled that the NCHC has recognized Diana’s amazing academic talents, her devotion to service, her commitment to honors education, and her extraordinary generosity of spirit. She represents the best qualities of our Honors Program as well as the values and high standards of the NCHC. She is an inspiring gem,” said Dr. John Zubizarreta, director of the Columbia College Honors Program. Lynde, a particularly distinguished Honors Program student is doublemajoring in communication and public affairs. She has made presentations on the power of reflective learning at the national convention of the Association of American Colleges and Universities, as well as on a variety of teaching and learning topics at two National Collegiate Honors Council conferences. Recently, she was chosen to attend DePauw University's The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics to present her submission "The Curious Case of the Conversational Absolutist." Lynde also won a prestigious South Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities (SCICU) Collaborative Research Grant to conduct research in Germany on the topic of gender, philosophy, and the academic marketplace. She is a Columbia College Founders Scholar and recipient of the Savory Scholars Undergraduate Research Grant.

McIntyre ’68

Alumnae Spotlight:

Jane McIntyre has never had more energy than she has now. At a time in her life when most of her best friends are retired or thinking about it, Jane stepped up to lead United Way of Central Carolinas when the organization’s future was in serious jeopardy. “All my friends think I’m crazy…they don’t understand, but they know I’m happy.” The challenge Jane took on a year ago was one that any executive would think twice about, given the economic climate and a very public scandal that had deeply damaged the community’s trust in the Charlotte-region’s United Way. Donations were sharply down, and difficult changes were surely ahead for the nonprofit that relied on community partnerships to carry out its charitable mission. But none of this was enough to discourage Jane. “There is something freeing to be able to focus on finishing a career rather than building a career. She saw this as an opportunity for reinvention for the entire organization—to create a new, healthier culture in an old organization. “It’s not light duty,” she says—the community expected decisive action. In one year, no fewer than 21 strategic changes were made for the new reality of an operating budget that decreased from $10.4 million two years ago to under $6.4 million now. “We reduced staff from about 58 people (97 two years ago) to 44, and the board was restructured from 67 people to just 22. We needed our board to be more fully engaged than ever before because we were pursuing the reinvention of an entire organization, from the top down. And it was critical to rebuild trust among the staff, the community, our donors and all of our agency partners.” Nine months later, they generated $2.8 million more than the previous year, with over $16.6 million going back to the community. “It’s all about relationships,” Jane emphasizes. “Our strategy is year-round now rather than seasonal. I have a note on my desk with the words ‘Challenge…Responsibility… Investment…Flexibility…Team…Make a Difference’ and those are words that drive me.”

Between August and November of 2009 Jane made over 100 visits and presentations for UWCC, and her passion and sincerity are even stronger now than in those first months with the organization. “This is the perfect job at this time in my life. We came close to losing an important asset in our community, and for me, this is an incredible opportunity to make a difference for so many in need.” Earlier in her career, Jane had worked in health care, had served on her local school board, and had led a similar organizational turnaround as the CEO of the Charlotte YWCA. When this opportunity came along, “I had planned to work at YWCA no more than 10 years (one more year), because I believe that periodic changes in leadership are good. But I knew I wasn’t ready to retire. I love a challenge.” Three years ago she successfully recovered from open-heart surgery to repair a defective aortic valve. “Luckily I experienced full recovery, but it does take a while and puts some things in perspective…since then, I am just very thankful and ready for each new day!” Thinking back to her days at Columbia College, Jane says it was the only place she applied for college. She arrived in the spring after the 1964 fire and remembers, “everyone had to triple up in the residence halls, and we had six to a suite for a while.” For the past 33 years, the families of the original roommates have gathered annually for a big Labor Day weekend beach trip. The group includes Claire (Wilson) and Paul Yarborough and Linda Sue (Knight) and George Horres. “Now we have our grown children and grandchildren too, with about 30 people…it is a special time for each of us.”

Alumnae Sisters, Asbury can wait no longer. She needs our help. “Many choices are available both in and out of state for quality single gender education. We know our faculty and our academic programs are stellar…. we also know that as a recruiting tool, the curb appeal of a dorm


sbury Hall was built on the Columbia College campus following the fire of ’64 that destroyed Old Main. The largest dorm on campus, it was built to accommodate a growing student body as President R. Wright Spears worked to rebuild a vibrant campus. For years it was a residence hall for juniors and seniors, and in 2000 Asbury Hall officially became housing for first-year students, with programs tailored to serve their needs and improve retention. By 2003, Columbia College was one of 12 institutions selected nationwide for “Foundations of Excellence in the First College Year,” providing the pattern for small private colleges across the country. Our first-year program is an innovative model for the nation, admired and copied for the way it helps students make a smooth transition from high school to college life. Unfortunately, this asset is now overshadowed by 45+ years of wear and tear, with spaces, furniture, flooring and bathroom fixtures that are antiquated and worn. Frankly, Asbury Hall is a tough sell for our recruiters. 6

has an impact not only on prospective students but on their families as well. And girlfriends, Asbury’s first impression needs work!” Ellen Claussen Davis ’72 and Nancy Cummings Humphries ’72 Alumnae Chairs for Help Asbury Dress The Part

From, “I can’t picture myself here,” to “I can’t wait to get here!” That’s our vision for the new Asbury Hall, a place where admissions counselors are proud to walk prospective students and their families through bright, modern living areas. We envision Asbury Hall as a center that enhances the academic and social experience for first-year students and makes them glad they chose to become part of the fabric of Columbia College’s legacy of leadership. Your support of the incredibly successful Imagine Campaign has allowed us to take important first steps. This year, students moving into Asbury Hall were excited to find their rooms with individual air controls, a huge comfort issue that was one of our most urgent priorities to resolve. But we still have a lot of work to do for Asbury Hall to become a recruiting asset rather than a threadbare hindrance. With your continued support and the leadership of alumnae chairs Ellen Claussen Davis ‘72 and Nancy Cummings Humphries ‘72, Asbury’s renovation will make a dramatic impact on the recruitment and retention of a strong student body.

Columbia College

The design concepts for Asbury Hall show preliminary ideas ranging from a redesigned reception area to common spaces equipped with the latest technology for collaborative learning. Our research included input from current students and residence hall advisors and staff to gain an understanding of their needs and preferences. The three lounges in Asbury Hall function as essential flexible spaces for student life. Club meetings, tutoring sessions, and social activities that support first-year success are just a few of the functions these improved spaces will accommodate.

LandscapingEnhancement s Transforming Campus Green Spaces


generous gift from philanthropists Robert McNair and Janice Suber McNair ’59 is the source of the dramatic landscape changes that have been taking place on the campus since July. The approved landscaping upgrades emphasize low maintenance plantings and native plants, and includes new irrigation in some areas. Perhaps the most dramatic changes are the plantings at College entrances and the addition of several tall Sabal palmettos, the state tree, to The Mall. The McNairs are residents of Houston, Texas, and have been following the progress thanks to the slide show featured on the Columbia College website. “This wonderful gift has created so much excitement in our campus community, and we can’t wait to welcome the McNairs back to campus to see the results firsthand,“ said President Whitson.

Candy Yaghjian Waites

Myers is the first lady of Summerville, South Carolina, where she is a champion of child welfare and health care access for the working poor, and an active member of the Columbia College Alumnae Association. Myers’ deep connection with Columbia College developed over many years, first as a member of the class of 1964, though she withdrew her junior year to get married. At the urging of a former professor, she returned a few years later and completed her degree in 1980. Shortly after graduating, she joined the College staff, where she served in various staff roles for eighteen years until retiring in 2001 as the executive director of development. For several years, Myers also put her fundraising and people skills to work for political campaigns for candidates such as Les Tindal, Nick Theodore and Phil Lader. She has served on many nonprofit boards which currently include Welvista, a statewide health care access program for the working poor; The Ark, Summerville, an Alzheimer’s Family Support Service; Children in Crisis, Summerville, a child advocacy facility for abused and neglected children; and she is vice president of the Columbia College Alumnae Association. Her previous board service includes Killingsworth Home; Sculpture of the South public art initiative; Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Columbia; Family Service Center; Palmetto Project; and service as a past president of Women of the Church for Shandon United Methodist Church. Myers has received numerous awards and honors for her service, including The Bert Cicenia Award; Distinguished Service Award from Columbia College; establishment of the Marlena Redfern Myers Scholarship at Columbia College; and a Safe Haven Facility at Dorchester Children’s Center named in her honor in Summerville. She is married to The Honorable Berlin G. Myers, and has two adult children and five grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.

Waites is executive director of the S.C. Gubernatorial Appointments Project with the goal of increasing the number of women in senior level positions in South Carolina government. She has spent her entire career as an advocate for women finding their voices. Waites received her B.A. in English from Wheaton College, Norton, Mass., and her master’s in public administration from the University of South Carolina. As a senior at Wheaton College in 1965, her nationally publicized campus protest galvanized South Carolina’s elected officials so that in one year state law was changed allowing college students to vote by absentee ballot. This was the beginning of her political activism. Waites recently retired as director of community leadership programs at The Leadership Institute, Columbia College, after 14 years of service. She continues to teach a course at Columbia College on SC Women Impacting Public Policy. During the administration of Governor Jim Hodges, she served as the director of the Division of Children’s Services. In 1988, Waites was elected to the South Carolina House of Representatives from Richland County and served for three terms. She was instrumental in the passage of legislation dealing with the reform of campaign finances and ethics policy. Prior to service in the House, she served on Richland County Council for 12 years beginning in 1976. Prior to 1976, no women had been elected to Council, and she served as first woman chair in 1984. She has served on countless local and state boards and commissions and presently serves on the Palmetto Richland Board, Palmetto Health Board and Capital Senior Center Board. Waites has received numerous awards including the 1998 Athena Award, Legislator of the Year 1992 by the S.C. Association of Counties and the Annual Legislative Award by Common Cause of S.C., in 1990 and 1991. She is also an artist specializing in pencil portraits. She has two adult daughters and four grandchildren.

Where Are They Now? Columns Catches Up With Retired Faculty


Dr. Robert Moore and Dr. Selden Smith t’s impossible to reminisce about the department of history and political science during the 1960s–1990s without the names of Dr. Robert Moore and Dr. Selden Smith coming to mind simultaneously. They both joined the faculty in 1960 and were kindred spirits who worked sideby-side over their many years together at Columbia College. Both fondly recall Smith’s words on the occasion of Moore’s retirement ceremony in 1999, “I often would shout across the hall to ask, ‘who is the author…?’ Or he would ask, ‘who is the student…?’” Laughing, Smith declared, “Bob and I, we have one decent memory between the two of us.” Among their shared accomplishments were many guest speakers and special lecture events, which welcomed the surrounding community to campus. After 50 years, they still remain close friends.

Dr. Robert Moore served twenty-three years as chair of

the department of history and political science and was the Charles Ezra Daniel Professor of History until his retirement in 1999. Moore is an avid traveler and has for many years organized a yearly group trip to Europe for 30 to 40 people. He and his wife, Meribeth Walton-Moore ’93, have led tours to Austria, Belgium, Britain, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Greece, Holland, New Zealand, and Nova Scotia to name some of the numerous places they have visited. This year, rather than traveling abroad they toured the Canadian Rockies, took an Alaskan cruise and visited their four children and their families, including four grandchildren.   Although leading tours is time consuming, he also stays busy with home projects and he and Meribeth are active in a book club with ten other couples and enjoy the friendship of that group.   Next year, Moore will not lead his usual tour group; he will be busy writing a new South Carolina history textbook for eighth graders. He recently signed with Clairmont Press in Atlanta to write the textbook, which is due in schools the year 2012. Meribeth will work closely with him on this project. Carol Vaughn ’71, who was one of his students, and has worked for Clairmont Press, suggested Moore when they were actively searching for a new writer. He and Meribeth are looking forward to the project.   When asked what stands out most about Columbia College during his 39 years, Moore immediately says, “the collegiality.” He especially enjoyed the traditions of the faculty/staff coffee hour that kept everyone informed about campus activities and was a great social occasion. The less formal coffee sessions of eight or ten people were also good places to exchange ideas. Also important was the collegiality between faculty and students. “Columbia College was a good place to be.”    Moore invites his former students and colleagues to e-mail him at or write to him at 3517 Verner Street, Columbia, SC  29204.  

Dr. Selden Smith

first joined the Columbia College faculty as a part-time professor in the department of history and political science. Shortly after his arrival, he became full-time and later served as chair of the department. He retired in 1997 after serving for 37 years. In the 1970s, Smith developed an interest in Holocaust studies that Seated, Dr. Selden Smith, Standing, Dr. Robert Moore has continued into his retirement. He has taught courses on the Holocaust, conducted workshops for teachers, and served on the South Carolina Council on the Holocaust and the South Carolina Jewish Historical Society. Today, he still helps organize the summer weeklong workshops conducted on the College campus that are held every July for teachers. Smith says, “Columbia College has been very kind to Holocaust studies.”  He is very grateful to Dr. Caroline Whitson and Dr. Laurie Hopkins for allowing the workshops and the partnership with the South Carolina Council on the Holocaust to continue. The workshops provide South Carolina teachers the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of this important time in world history by meeting Holocaust survivors and historians.   Smith believed that the College was strengthened by the activities of students and faculty members engaged in community affairs. Community and College dialogue and cooperation provided opportunities for the College and for its students. Interfaith dialogue was also a keen interest.   He and his wife, Dorothy Gasque Smith ’61, have traveled in recent years to Italy, France, and the British Isles, and have taken a family cruise to the Caribbean. They have four children and eight grandchildren with whom they enjoy spending time.    Smith was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2005, which has curtailed some of his activities, but he remains strongly engaged in daily events. He is still keenly interested in the state political scene, especially the 2010 gubernatorial campaigns. He also spends time keeping in touch with his classmates from Erskine College. A strong advocate for Columbia College, he believes no learning takes place until the student is engaged. When asked what he misses most about Columbia College Smith says, “ I miss the contact with the students and my colleagues.”   Dr. Smith welcomes messages from his former students and colleagues and can be reached at or at 3023 Whitehall Road, Columbia, SC  29204, 803.782.9294.

As chair of the Men of Columbia College, I am happy to share that we are now 77 strong! Launched in 2009 as a part of the Imagine Campaign, the club has not only offered to our male graduates another way to get connected, it has provided an opportunity for men to show their appreciation for the women in their lives who have attended or have been connected to Columbia College and encouraged couples with loyalty to two alma maters to support Columbia College equally. We supported the Through These Gates walk at Alumnae Weekend in April and look forward to participating in other events in the future—so please join us.

Columbia College Scholarships

Thank you to all who supported our 2008-2009 goals to provide financial support and to enable us to improve the academic profile of our students. The lists below represent scholarship activity at Columbia College. Endowed scholarship funds are designed to be permanent and perpetual and can be created with gifts totaling a minimum amount of $25,000 contributed in full at the outset or with an initial commitment that is added to over five years until the endowment level of $25,000 is attained. The principal of the fund is invested to produce income which is awarded by financial aid to a student(s). The principal remains untouched allowing the endowment to last into perpetuity. Annual scholarships can be established with a minimum gift of $1,000. Unlike an endowed scholarship described above, an annual scholarship is not a permanent fund and is awarded only as long as you (or others) choose to contribute to the fund. If you would like more information to set up or contribute to scholarships or have questions, please call the Office of Advancement at 803.786.3650.

Lipscomb Family Presents Painting Honoring the wishes of the late Guy Fleming Lipscomb Jr. (1917-2009), his family has presented “The Gift Bearer,” an original painting by Lipscomb, to the College. With the family’s permission, the painting was featured on the 2008 Christmas card sent to Columbia College donors and alumnae. It was the second time the College was honored to feature the distinguished artist’s work on a holiday greeting. Lipscomb is remembered as a modern Renaissance man, whose long life encompassed a legacy of family devotion, athletics, science, business acumen, community service, and a passion for teaching and supporting the arts and education. Lipscomb was a cherished friend and benefactor and his generosity brought important opportunities to the College.

Dr. Alan Weinberg, professor of music, traveled to Germany in July for the premier of his new work for Baroque and Blue. With generous support by the U.S. Consulate in Leipzig, Germany, Weinberg attended the premiere of his work, titled “Americana,” on July 17 at Schloss Neschwitz, Lausitzer Musiksommer and July 18 at Schloss Colditz. Weinberg says of the new work, “The main idea is that it reflects an essentially American melting pot of styles—anything from salsa to Appalachian folk music, or bolero to bluegrass to popular music. I think that’s what I would be aiming for in my new piece(s). And I think that coming to Germany would help carry on the important work of promoting international understanding and peace.”

Salute to 90th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage

Women’s Equality Day, the anniversary of the 19th Amendment, was celebrated on August 26 on The Mall. To honor the courageous demonstrations held daily in front of the White House and in major cities during the Women’s Suffrage Movement, participants were dressed in white and some wore suffragette banners typical of the period. Leaders of C4, a communication majors club, read from important suffragette speeches, including those by Victoria Woodhull, Sojourner Truth, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. At the behest of Rep. Bella Abzug (D-NY) in 1971 the U.S. Congress designated August 26 as “Women’s Equality Day.” The 1920 passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote, was the culmination of a massive, peaceful civil rights movement by women. The movement had its formal beginnings in 1848 at the world’s first women’s rights convention in Seneca Falls, New York.

Since its founding in 1854 by the South Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church, Columbia College has continued to build upon the spiritual values that inspired its birth. At the heart of Columbia College is a commitment to providing educational opportunities that develop students’ capacity for critical thought and expression, lifelong learning, acceptance of personal responsibility, and commitment to service and social justice. United Methodists from the South Carolina Conference have demonstrated an abiding interest in Columbia College. This year, Columbia College received over $390,000 from the South Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church to assist in underwriting student scholarships.

Michelle Burgess’11 REC EIVES S AVORY AWAR D Michelle Burgess ’11, Honors student and an English major certifying to teach from Andrews, S.C., is this year’s recipient of the Savory Award. Michelle is the current Senior Class President. Two common themes throughout the nominations that Michelle received were her willingness to help others succeed, especially firstyear students and her unfailing love of her alma mater, Columbia College. Burgess says, “It is an immense honor to be the recipient of such a prestigious award. I’m still speechless that my peers thought me deserving of such an honor. However, I will say that I know in my heart that Columbia College has given me the very best education and preparation to become a socially conscious and productive member of society that I could have ever asked for.” The Savory Award is given each fall in memory of Dr. Jerold “Jerry” Savory, a long-time faculty member and academic leader at Columbia College, greatly admired by students, faculty and staff. Dr. Savory was recognized during his 26 years at the College for his commitment to personal and academic excellence, ethical leadership, spiritual values, and the well-being

of the Columbia College community. This award seeks to honor the Columbia College senior woman who most exemplifies the ideals that guided Dr. Savory’s life. It is a particular honor as it has been the tradition since 1993 for the class doll to be dressed to represent the recipient of the Savory Award.

Colu m b i a C olle g e W e lco m es Ne w C h aplai n a nd D i rect o r o f C h urc h Relat i o ns Reverend Roy M. Mitchell

Reverend Roy M. Mitchell, chaplain and director of church relations, assumed his duties at the College on July 1. Mitchell comes to Columbia from the West Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church, where he most recently served as the lead pastor at Lewisburg United Methodist Church. He also has wide experience in youth and young adult ministries. Mitchell’s duties as chaplain will include conducting the weekly chapel services, and providing pastoral care to faculty, staff, and students. In addition to providing pastoral care, the Chaplain works with student groups, faculty and staff to develop and implement a variety of opportunities for spiritual growth. Programs strive to be creative, diverse and ecumenical, including study experiences, interfaith dialogues, retreats, mission projects, and special conferences.

In his role as director of church relations, he serves as a bridge between Columbia College and the South Carolina Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church. He promotes support and understanding of the work of United Methodist higher education—specifically the work of Columbia College—through preaching, teaching, and visiting United Methodist Churches throughout South Carolina. Mitchell received his masters of divinity degree and masters of theological studies from Methodist Theological School, Delaware, Ohio, and his bachelors of art in psychology and child/family studies from The University of Tennessee. He is an ordained Full Elder of the West Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church. He is joined in Columbia by his wife Melissa and their two children.
