Spartanburg Methodist College — Spring 2005


SPARTANBURG METHODIST COLLEGE

Message from the President

I

n graduate school, I took a course that helped me fully grasp the meaning of “professionals.” After weeks of class discussions, readings, and research, I came to a simple but profound understanding: Professionals know who they are, what they are doing, and where they are going. In unique ways, this definition also applies to colleges and universities. To be effective in educating students, colleges must know who they are. Without such knowledge, the institution’s mission is unclear. And without a clear understanding of its mission, the institution’s ability to educate students and plan for its future is greatly impaired.

Institutions must be intentional in doing what is best to promote student learning. Institutions that do not retain a sharp focus on their raison d’etre lose the ability to meaningfully engage in educational processes with students. Without an understanding of who they are and what they are doing, institutions will not know where they are going. An old Chinese proverb expresses it well: “If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there.” The institution’s vision must build upon the history of the institution and remain faithful to the values upon which it was founded. Armed with this knowledge and with a resolute commitment to students, the institution must then develop its vision for the future. In mid-February, our Board of Trustees, along with selected administrators and faculty, held a twoday Strategic Planning Retreat that refreshed our understanding of who we are and what we are doing to promote student learning in and outside the classroom. As the retreat progressed, visioning activities helped the Board gain insight into the future of the College. The participants came to understand the challenges we face and the future we must pursue. The Board approved the construction of Sparrow Residence Hall, a 119-bed facility made possible through a generous pledge from Mr. John Sparrow in Lake City, S.C. Plans are being drafted to expand the Buchheit Administration Building through the addition of the Vassey Information Technology Center, a Center made possible through a bequest from the late Herbert and Rebecca Vassey. The College will continue to beautify the grounds and upgrade facilities. As we build for the future, we will expand our academic curriculum and degree programs. New career-track academic programs, such as our emerging Paralegal Studies Program, will be developed to offer our graduates the option either to continue their education at baccalaureate level institutions or immediately enter the work force after completing the associate’s degree. Also, we will continue to enhance student learning both in and outside the classroom. As we approach our 100th year anniversary in 2011, we ask for your prayers and your continued support. Even more, we invite you to become our partners in education. Together we will strengthen our college and better prepare our students to become effective leaders in the 21st Century. Sincerely,

Charles P. Teague President of the College

r. John Sparrow of Lake City, S.C., has made a pledge to Spartanburg Methodist College which will help finance the construction of a residence hall that will be named in honor of his parents and family. According to Dr. Charles P. Teague, President of SMC, the Board of Trustees, acting upon a recommendation from the Buildings and Grounds Committee, formally accepted a pledge from Mr. Sparrow and approved the construction of a new three-story, 119-bed residence hall to be built adjacent to the Barrett Learning Center and across Kingman Drive from Bridges Residence Hall. McMillan Smith and Partners Architects were selected to design the new facility.

"We are most grateful for the very generous gift from Mr. Sparrow that makes it possible to construct Sparrow Residence Hall on our campus. His investment in our college reflects his strong commitment to helping others and his desire to be a partner in the educational mission of Spartanburg Methodist College," stated Teague.

The architecture of the 119-bed, threestory Sparrow Residence Hall will complement adjacent Bridges Hall, which was completed in August, 2003. 4

SMC EXCEEDS FUNDRAISING TOTALS n 2004, Spartanburg Methodist College received the largest amount of fundraising commitments in its 94-year history. In the final year of SMC’s Vision 2005 $20 Million Campaign, the 2004 totals are at more than $16 million. Dan Foster, Chairman of the SMC Board, said that 2004 commitments totaled $4,383,213. Foster made the announcement, which topped the previous high of $3,991,524 by approximately 10 percent, at the local Donors Appreciation Dinner, held February 15.

I

Foster said it was a difficult fundraising year and that it took a number of year-end contributions to attain success. While the increased fundraising has enabled the College to construct new buildings such as the Bridges Residence Hall, it has also helped increase enrollment by 10 percent and improve the quality of the Fall 2004 entering class. President Charles P. Teague said that the $2 million challenge grant from Drs. Edgar H. and Charlotte Ellis was very instrumental in helping realize the totals.

VISION 2005

THE COLLEGE AT A CROSSROADS

stablished in 1911, Textile Industrial Institute, the forerunner of Spartanburg Methodist College, was founded to provide an educational opportunity for the ambitious, but financially disadvantaged. A pioneer in work-study and the first to be founded by a church organization (Methodist), this institution has provided an educational opportunity to thousands during the past 94 years.

E

essential for success in their careers. The Criminal Justice Program is another expression of the intent of the College to provide creative educational opportunities for all of those who have a thirst for knowledge, or desire a more productive life in their chosen vocation. Academic innovations have been many and varied over the years, and new ideas continue to evolve.

In 1942 the Textile Industrial Institute was renamed Spartanburg Junior College, thus reflecting the major emphasis of the educational program. From its very inception, the College has maintained a distinct character. Sound educational programming, a deep commitment to the financially disadvantaged, and sensitivity to emerging needs have been the hallmark of this institution. In 1974 the name was changed to Spartanburg Methodist College.

As the College’s programs have increased, the number of persons who call on the College for educational services has increased drastically. There has been a 47 percent increase since 1999. During the past two years, the enrollment has increased 17 percent – an amazing statistic for a private college today. The College now stands at the crossroads again. New facilities, the renovation of older buildings, and a stronger endowment are essential for Spartanburg Methodist College to continue its distinctive role of leadership in quality education – a higher education for anyone who desires it – regardless of financial need, ethnic or religious heritage. As many private colleges are settling for less service capacity, Spartanburg Methodist College is striving for the strength to ensure future generations the same opportunity offered their parents and grandparents during our 94 years of service. We cannot and will not settle for mediocrity.

The Board of Trustees continues to insist on emphasizing student financial aid, sound basic education, and new program opportunities. No student has ever been denied admission to this college for financial reasons. In addition to the basic two-year Liberal Arts course of study, special new avenues have been opened in adult education. The Paralegal Program, recently implemented at Spartanburg Methodist College, provides students an opportunity to build required skills

uildings on the SMC campus bear the names of men and women for their invaluable contributions to this institution. But former president George Fields is especially pleased to have the street leading into the campus bear his name. “Streets go somewhere. People get on the streets because they have plans to be somewhere,” commented Fields, who, along with his wife, Mildred, unveiled a sign October 21, 2004 designating the entrance as George Fields Drive. President Charles Teague recounted Fields’ accomplishments during his many years at SMC, noting, “We are grateful for that and are impressed by the many ways you brought quality into this institution throughout your 21 years as president and your years as director of development.” During the Fields presidency, which lasted from 1976 to 1997, SMC added numerous programs of study, including associate degrees in Computer Science, Science, Business, Information Management, Office Administration Systems and a general education certificate for the National Guard.

ness leaders, as well as friends and members of the Fields family. Fletcher Thompson, an attorney and former SMC trustee, characterized Fields as a very focused person who spearheaded the College’s first million dollar campaign. Terry Stephenson, professor of Mathematics and Computer Science and Chairperson of the Division of Math, Science, and Computer Science, recalled that Fields was a very good steward of this campus. “He always saw to it that the campus stayed in ‘tip-top’ shape,” Stephenson said. Dan Foster, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, commended George and Mildred Fields for their energy, enthusiasm, resourcefulness and skill while serving SMC. “In the many years to come, future generations will come to know George Fields Drive as a pathway to higher learning named for a true leaderservant,” said Foster. Fields expressed thanks to SMC trustees, faculty and staff as well as those from the community who came for the ceremony.

(continued)

Fields was joined by several family members during the ceremony. During the same period, SMC embraced computer technology, adding fiber-optic lines for computer networking and phone service, and a campus cable television system. The campus underwent major facilities renovations and additions, which included improvements to the Olin D. Johnston Outdoor Athletic Facility: revitalizing the C.B. “Slim” Mooneyham Baseball Field, construction of the Fred Nash Soccer Field, and construction of the William C. Buchheit Tennis Complex. Also, the Eva S. Grant Softball Field was added to the campus in 1989. In 1981, Vera Davis Parsons Hall was constructed. During the 1980s and 1990s, H. Lester Kingman, Eliza Judd, William G. Willard, and Charles P. Hammond residence halls underwent major improvements that included installation of air-conditioning, new windows and interior work. Other notable changes included expansion of the Phil Buchheit Administration Building, improvements to the Frank Walker Building and William S. Moore Student Activities Building and improvements to roadways and parking lots on campus. Under Fields, SMC also experienced increased use of computer technology for registration and other operations. Joining SMC trustees, faculty, staff and students to celebrate this dedication were community and busi-

Spartanburg Mayor Bill Barnet (left) and SMC Trustee Chairman Dan Foster after the ceremony “I’m glad to have a time we can celebrate together a period in the life of the college for which I was a part,” said Fields, adding that he and his family spent 25 happy years and enjoyed the privilege of living in a unique learning, caring kind of community.” Fields expressed thanks to faculty for working as a team on behalf of the students. He also expressed gratitude to the trustees who served during his tenure and helped him accomplish widespread improvements on campus. “Thanks be to God for the faculty, staff and thousands of students who walked through this campus and into these classrooms and are now serving in many wonderful places throughout the world,” Fields commented. “I see them constantly and there is no feeling of accomplishment like seeing a former student doing well and making contributions to society.” Fields also expressed gratitude to his wife, Mildred, for being what he described as a “helpmate and colleague who did wonderful things for the College.”

autographed bat and ball. Wallace recalled that the bat was a “game bat,” which he said was “as valuable as gold.” Foster echoed Sanders’ remark that baseball is about kids, emphasizing that SMC graduates should vow to make a difference in the lives of others. Both coaches spoke of Sanders’ major league record, which includes a six-year record of 20-plus home runs and 20 stolen bases earned while playing for six different teams. Perkins joked about the time he and Sanders shared a room at SMC and how he was a stickler for cleanliness, but praised him as a “good Christian, God-fearing man with a lovely family.” Teague then invited Sanders and his family to unveil one of the signs that mark the street which runs from Grant Softball Field to Bridges Arena within sight of the baseball outfield. Sanders, accompanied by his wife, Wyndee, and children, Cody, 12, Carrigon, 7, Carson, 3, and eight-month-old Cooper, unveiled the sign. Sanders then had his turn at the microphone and took the next few minutes to recount his time as a student and to praise Joyce, Fields and others for welcoming him to SMC and helping him realize his talents.

(continued)

“I never realized I had the talent to be a professional baseball player until I came to SMC and had the first opportunity of getting a scout to recognize my talents.” — Reggie Sanders St. Louis Cardinals player and former SMC Pioneer Sanders then heard tributes from past and present coaches and presidents, signed autographs, and chatted with former teammates and others about their days at SMC during the late 1980s. Those paying tribute to the 36-year-old baseball standout included Dr. Charles Teague, SMC President; Dr. George Fields, former president; Dan Foster, Chairman of the SMC Board of Trustees; Lon Joyce, former Pioneers Baseball Coach; Roger Ullery, former Assistant Coach; Tim Wallace, current Pioneers Baseball Coach; and former college roommate, Joel Perkins. “The most impressive thing about this gentleman to me is that he is truly a role model for others,” said Teague of Sanders, noting his faith and commitment to his family, friends and alma mater. Fields, who was president while Sanders was at SMC, characterized him as a winner and a gentleman who has brought honor to his college. Former Pioneers Coach, Lon Joyce, said he was impressed by Sanders from the time he first saw him play high school baseball at Florence. Joyce recognized Sanders as a top player a few years later when he came to SMC for baseball tryouts. He praised Sanders for continuing to be an outstanding spokesman for SMC. When Roger Ullery joined SMC in 1987 as assistant coach, he recalled saying to himself that Sanders was a professional prospect. “Reggie played shortstop for us that year and the hill behind first base looked like a battlefield because of his ‘grenade launcher’ arm,” said Ullery, who quipped that Sanders “tore up” a few batting cages as a Pioneer player. Ullery then stated how impressed he was with Sanders’ integrity, honesty and genuine character. Wallace and Foster both recounted a recent episode that best illustrates Sanders’ character. In response to a June incident at Texas Rangers Stadium in which an adult fan knocked aside fourSanders signs year-old Nicholas O’Brien to autographs for fans catch a foul ball, Sanders after the ceremony emerged between innings to present the boy with an

Sanders (fourth from right) with former Pioneer teammates, Coach Lon Joyce (left) and Assistant Coach Roger Ullery (second from left) “What you’ve given me through the years is priceless,” said Sanders of Coach Joyce, adding, “I never realized I had the talent to be a professional baseball player until I came to SMC and had the first opportunity of getting a scout to recognize my talents.” To SMC faculty and staff, Sanders said, “Your schooling me and helping me along that journey – I’m definitely indebted for that.” Sanders then thanked his family for instilling in him values of being respectful, humble, and gracious. He said that the most important possession for today’s youth is character. Throughout his professional career, Sanders has continually reaffirmed his close ties with SMC through participation in baseball clinics, helping the 1996 Pioneers travel to District Playoffs in Mississippi, and donating financial gifts which were used to improve, maintain, and expand outdoor athletic facilities on the SMC campus. In addition to the Cardinals, Sanders played eight years with the Cincinnati Reds, and a year each with the San Diego Padres, Atlanta Braves, Arizona Diamondbacks, and the Pittsburgh Pirates. Sanders graduated from SMC in 1988.

Scholarship Named For Former PIONEERS Coach

Coach Smoak in the early 70s during a Men’s Basketball game at the current Moore Athletic Activities Building. Back then, the facility was nicknamed the “Smoak House.”

lthough former SMC Head Basketball Coach John McMahon Smoak passed away last fall, a scholarship in his memory will ensure that future generations of student-athletes will become winners.

A

According to Mike Bowers, SMC Director of Gift Planning, Smoak was the kind of person who left an impression on hundreds of student-athletes during his dozen years of coaching. He also achieved an overall coaching career mark of 301 wins and only 148 losses, and 205 wins over 127 losses with the Pioneers. Under Smoak, the Pioneers also advanced to the NJCAA Regional Tournament three times. Bowers said Smoak brought a wealth of experience to SMC as a coach and educator who also served his country as a Tank Company Commander in the U.S. Army’s 2nd Armored Division in Germany. Family and friends are establishing the John McMahon Smoak Memorial Scholarship at SMC, and are seeking contributors. Bowers expects that the fund will reach the minimum level of $10,000 in time for the College to issue scholarship assistance as early as the fall of 2005. The SMC Board of Trustees has agreed to match, from general endowment, every dollar contributed once the fund balance reaches $5,000. They will continue to match contributions until the total contributed to the fund reaches $10,000. The goal is that the fund would reach $100,000 in five years.

TII Founder Recalls Military Neighbor

The Textile Industrial Institute, now known as Spartanburg Methodist College, moved several structures from nearby Camp Wadsworth after World War I. Pictured at left is the camp’s library, which was moved in pieces by students two miles to the campus. At right is a student and his family standing in front of a row of tents moved to the Institute’s campus for married student housing.

hen the United States entered World War I, the face of Spartanburg would soon be transformed by more than 30,000 troops who lived and trained at Camp Wadsworth before shipping off to Europe.

Today, almost nothing remains of the camp, which sat on land now bisected by Interstate 26 and occupied by Westgate Mall and the bustling commercial area along U.S. Highway 29.

“We found it difficult to teach patriotism and discourage courtship both at the same time,” recalled Camak in his manuscript. Daily bugle calls and columns of soldiers marching along the public road through the TII campus served as constant reminders to students, faculty and staff of the military presence. He noted that the soldiers visited the campus canteen, men’s dormitory, and would occasionally be found on top of a large mound of granite rubble overlooking the girl’s dormitory.

At the same time, the Textile Industrial Institute, located across the creek, felt the impact of the camp’s close proximity. Dr. David English Camak, who established the institute in 1911 and moved it to its current location shortly after that, wrote about those war years as part of an unpublished manuscript, “Singing Helps Win Battles.” Camak’s story, contributed by Dr. Katherine Davis Cann, professor of History at SMC, is featured in When the Soldiers Came to Town, the latest book to be published by the Hub City Writer’s Project. Shortly after the U.S. entered World War I in 1917, Camp Wadsworth was carved out of 2,000 acres of pine forests located west of Spartanburg.

Camak recalled a soldier who offered to marry one of the female students. “We referred him to the young lady’s parents,” he wrote. At Camak’s request, mounted military police would 38


FRONTIERS MAGAZINE — SPRING 2005 patrol the campus. Concerned over the interaction of female students with the nearby soldiers, Camak penned lyrics and set them to the tune of the popular war song “It’s a Long Way to Tipperary” apparently to discourage his young students from surrendering to Cupid’s arrow. Amazingly, Camak didn’t recall any instances of “serious social indescretion” during those years when soldiers appeared to be everywhere. Camak When the war ended and Camp Wadsworth closed, the Institute acquired several of its structures and moved them pieceby-piece to its campus for classroom space and housing.

Love and Graduation (Tune: “It’s a Long Way to Tipperary”) To Textile Institute one day a pretty maiden went, The boys began to look at her most ardently intent, They sang to her sweet songs of love and looked her in the eye, She shook her saucy head at them and made them this reply; Chorus: It’s a long way to graduation; it’s a long way, I know. It’s a long way to graduation, but I am bound to go. Good-bye old flirtation, Farewell, Cupid dear, It’s a long, long way to graduation, but I’ll be right there! A handsome fellow, too, was found within the school one day, And all the girls began to look at him as if to say; “You’re old enough to settle down and have a happy home; Just get it fixed and send for me, for I’ll be glad to come.” An educated man and woman built a bungalow. Said she to Jim, “Do you remember why I first said no?” “’Twas you that said it while I thought it, for the road seem’d long Do you remember how we sang in the old school days that song?” — Provided by Dr. Katherine Davis Cann

MC acquired some new equipment recently which is very welcome, but hopefully will never have to be used. Carol Shearin, Director of Health Services, says the heart’s rhythm is basically electrical, and that when an individual experiences an abnormal heartbeat, they can lose consciousness. Having quick access to an AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) improves a victim’s chance of survival. Two AEDs are now in place on campus — one in the athletic training area and another at the Campus Safety Department — which, Shearin says, is available 24/7. The two AEDs are similar to the units found at schools, shopping malls and airports. A major benefit of AEDs, according to Shearin, are that they are designed for people without a medical background. The AED is capable of first detecting if an abnormal heart rhythm is present, and has a digital display that gives instructions on how to use the unit. In addition to Shearin, all Campus Safety officers, members of the Student Development staff, the Athletic Director and most of the coaches are are AED-Certified.

Wilkerson Scholarship Established York community pays fitting tribute to TII Alum, Area Farmer

1960s:

When Hickory Grove farmer and 1938 TII grad William B. Wilkerson Jr. died on Feb. 3, 2000, his friends and colleagues from the York Soil and Water Conservation Commission wanted to do more than donate flowers. He had been a commissioner 53 years and was active in his community throughout his life. “We thought setting up a scholarship would be a more fitting tribute than flowers,” said York Soil and Water Conservation Commissioner, Bennie Copeland, who served with Wilkerson in the York County Soil and Water Commission and also a graduate of the institution when it was later known as Spartanburg Junior College. Copeland knew Wilkerson to be a dedicated member of his community who was also fond of SMC.

Patricia Gallman Jones (’61) of Anderson, S.C., writes, “I have enjoyed being a high school substitute teacher during my retirement years. My two grandsons are very active in sports. I really enjoy going to their football, basketball and baseball games. We live on Lake Hartwell and have adapted very well to the laid-back life.”

Carolyn Finch Fowler (’63) of Spartanburg, S.C., writes that she has two grandchildren: a two-yearold grandson and a fourmonth-old granddaughter.

“We tried for so long to raise that money,” said Copeland. “We pulled money out of our own pockets. It took us four years just to get close.” Last December during its regular board meeting, the Commission received a late Christmas present — a $2,000 donation from Sharon-based Palmetto Masonic Lodge 289 — where Wilkerson was past master. “It’s a wonderful feeling of accomplishment,” Copeland said of the donation. “Now the fund is endowed, and it can help students who need a little help with tuition.” “That’s what Wilkerson would have wanted,” said Bill Summerville, a good friend of Wilkerson and current fund-raising chairman for the lodge. “He was a fine man who always put others ahead of himself,” Summerville added. “He was always one to help the community.” Wilkerson’s community roles included everything from Sunday School teacher at Mount Vernon Methodist Church to a stint on the state’s board of directors for the South Carolina Association of Conservation Districts. This is the first time the York Soil and Water Conservation Commission has established a scholarship.

Gerry L. Deal (’62) is President & Owner of Deal’s Machine Shop in Spartanburg, S.C. James L. Rowe (’62) of Hilton Head Island, S.C., is President of Kinghorn Insurance Services, Inc.

“We see this as a mild stepping stone,” Copeland said. “Now, we can add to this and hopefully watch it grow to $100,000.” Editor’s Note: Special thanks to Shannon Greene of the Rock Hill Herald for contributing this article.

Learning About Disabilities

Deaths: Mahlon H. Bagwell (‘38) died in January of 2005. He was the head baseball coach at Erwin High School in Asheville, N.C., for 12 years. Mahlon was one of 14 children and is a brother to Neetum Bagwell. Coach Bagwell taught at Erwin High School for 17 years — from 1967 until 1984. He spent two years in minor league baseball, six years in the U. S. Army during WW II, and organized the Senior Babe Ruth League Baseball in Western N.C.

A reality in education is that teachers must learn how to effectively work with students who have a variety of learning disabilities. Students in Lynn Haller’s Introduction to Education class find out first-hand how seemingly simple tasks can be daunting to a disabled student. They attempted to decode transposed numbers when solving mathematical problems. With cotton balls in their ears (above), they tried to listen to instructions. With socks on their hands (below, left), they attempted normal tasks such as writing. Blindfolded (below, right), they attempted to spread peanut butter on saltine crackers. Haller’s purpose is to give students at least some idea of the challenges and frustrations persons with disabilities encounter in a classroom setting.

John M. Smoak (’49) died in the fall of 2004. His sister, Miriam Smoak Henry, (’80), has set up an endowed scholarship in his memory. (see page 35) Norman J. Suttles (‘38) died February 10. Our deepest sympathy to his family and classmates.

leven SMC students took to the kitchens January 19 to prepare soup for Second Presbyterian Church Soup Kitchen. The day began with a service challenge honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The work was divided among three groups of students: one group went to the home of Dr. Katherine Cann, another to Dr. Paul Lofton’s home, and the third group went with Chaplain Candice Sloan to the Presbyterian Student Association House. Each group was given the ingredients and a recipe for vegetable soup, which was later to be frozen and given to the Second Presbyterian Soup Kitchen. Each group then received $35.00 with the challenge to collect as many non-perishable food items for the Soup Kitchen as they could. After three hours, the students returned to campus with approximately 133 cups of vegetable soup and 1,780 servings of non-perishable food items.

Lav Lav ondra ondra Ham, Keisha Keisha Wilkins and Kimberly Frye Frye made a trip to Sam’s Sam’s to gather soup ingredients and food items.

Campus Safety Enters a New Era

City of Spartanburg Public Safety Director, Tony Fisher, recognized members of Spartanburg Methodist College’s Campus Safety Department during a consecration ceremony Nov. 3 at Davis Mission Chapel. Pictured from left: (front) Jeremy Byrd, Stephanie Lovell, Travis Collins, (back) Adam Haymond, Justin Cheek, Fred Berrier, Jimmy Fortner, Sgt. Wallace Dillard, SMC Chief of Campus Safety Greg Weisner, and Fisher. Not pictured are Sgt. Paul Morton and James Thompson. In the fall of 2004, the SMC Campus Security Department converted to the Campus Safety Department.

hose who work around the clock to keep the campus of Spartanburg Methodist College safe and secure now have additional resources available for effective law enforcement, since the Campus Security Department received approval from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) to be classified as a law enforcement agency. Established as a law enforcement agency by SMC August 4, 2004, the Campus Safety Department now has the same authority as a city police department. According to Chief of Campus Safety, Greg Weisner, full-time officers on campus are now licensed as state constables. This means they have authority to make arrests, write traffic citations, and conduct investigations off campus when necessary. Other improvements to the department includes the acquisition of two additional patrol cars.

T

“This transition greatly enhances our ability to provide safety and security services to students,” Weisner said. The staff has also grown. In addition to the Chief, Campus Safety now employs three police officers, five part-time security officers, several security officers under private contract, and five members of a new Student Security Corps. Members of the Student Security Corps have been carefully selected and trained to supplement the full-time duty officers during day and evening hours. They will patrol the campus, help with parking enforcement, and participate in investigations. Faculty, staff and students came together Nov. 3 for a Consecration service at the Davis Mission Chapel. Tony Fisher, Spartanburg’s Director of Public Safety, gave a keynote address and offered his congratulations to the officers at SMC.

FRONTIERS MAGAZINE — SPRING 2005 In his remarks,Fisher urged students, faculty and staff attending the ceremony to say a prayer of thanks for officers who are looking out for their safety during the day and throughout the night, and to understand the difficulties officers face in their job. Fisher also urged students to respond with maturity to the officers and to appreciate the job they must do.
