Hi, I would like to draw your attention toward ‘Samaritan’s Purse International Internship’. For more information check out this link
Our Charleston communities were very fortunate this past month with Hurricane Florence and Michael and appreciate everyone that signed up to volunteer. The American Red Cross always has the need daily to help out our fellow neighbors, friends and family. Become a Blood Transportation Specialist and volunteer to help us deliver life-saving blood to our local hospitals. Just need a good driving record, be able to lift up to 50 lbs and want to make a difference in someone's life.
The textbook, Media Essentials, is For Sale, $30. pm me, ok?

Did you hear the news?! We just can't help but extend the celebration one more day.. 🎉 A huge shout out to #cofccomm faculty member Dr. Amanda Ruth-McSwain on being the recipient of one of the six college-wide annual faculty awards of distinction: the Distinguished Service Award!
••
The Distinguished Service Award recognizes the outstanding contributions of a colleague who, beyond his or her required duties, has a sustained career of serving the college community in an outstanding and distinguished manner. Nominations for these awards are submitted by CofC faculty colleagues, and a recipient is selected after comprehensive review by the designated award committee for each award. The six award recipients are presented annually by the Office of the Provost and Academic Affairs at the College of Charleston. ✨
••
Check out the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at the College of Charleston's in-depth post below to see what the award selection committee and Provost Fran Welch had to say specifically about Dr. Ruth's exemplary service to the College. 👇 Congratulations, Dr. Ruth! 👏👏

A very big congratulations to Amanda Ruth-McSwain! Dr. Ruth-McSwain is named this year’s winner of CofC’s Distinguished Service Award. This is one of CofC’s top awards given to faculty each spring. Interim Provost Fran Welch shared the following about Dr. Ruth-McSwain, writing, that she “brings a particular shine to the College of Charleston through the reach and impact of her endless service. The committee was most impressed with Amanda for her extraordinary leadership by placing the College in the national spotlight through the Bully Pulpit Series, while at the same time devoting her energy and commitment to her students on campus. Her skillful engagement with industry and political leaders -- with the College's constituencies and betterment always being her highest priority -- makes her an invaluable member of our campus community. As a servant leader, Amanda has integrated her service to the College by creating countless experiential opportunities for her students (e.g., NASA production assistants during the eclipse, CBS and CNN debate and town hall volunteer opportunities), thereby extending their career horizons. Her service has extended to many other opportunities, including being an interim Associate Dean, Director of the Master of Arts program in Communication, and so many campus-wide committees and efforts. Amanda notes that it is particularly satisfying to see students launch careers they would not have thought of as a result of their participation in these events. Dr. Ruth-McSwain embodies the selflessness and commitment of a faithful public servant as she seeks the best for students, her department, and the College, and we are pleased to see her honored with the College’s 2020 Distinguished Service Award.”

The campus-wide Alexander Chambliss Connelley Award (College of Charleston EVP Student Affairs) is presented to the student of the senior class who has made the most unselfish contribution(s) to the student body and the College. “Abbie Kline's engagement in the community is unique because in most cases, she has sought to draw in both the campus and the broader Charleston community. She has a unique and comprehensive understanding of service based on inclusivity and synergy. This penchant for inclusive leadership is a hallmark of Abbie’s leadership. Abbie was a co-liaison with a fellow student on The Green Heart Project. The Project builds garden-based experiential learning projects for students of all ages. She also served as President of the Rotoract Club, which brings students together to exchange ideas with leaders in the Charleston community and develop leadership and professional skills. Additionally, Abbie organized the Hurricane Matthew Relief for Haiti Student Fundraiser, served as a leader in the Campus Outreach Leadership Project, and co-founded Cougars with Purpose, which seeks to rally students together to advocate for and work towards curing pediatric cancer (cougarconnect.cofc.edu/organization/cougarswithpurpose). She organized the Lowcountry Citizens' Summit, an event that seeks to bridge the gap between the campus and the community by serving as an interdisciplinary venue for conversations regarding the construction and sustaining of a productive, equitable Lowcountry community." 🌹 Well done, Abbie! This campus-wide recognition is well deserved. Have we mentioned that we are proud of you? 🌹
