Columbia College partners with Missouri Sheriffs’ Association

Columbia College partners with Missouri Sheriffs’ Association

Continuing its commitment to assisting law enforcement officers reach their goals, Columbia College has teamed up with the Missouri Sheriffs’ Association (MSA) as a preferred education partner for candidates advancing through police academy with the MSA.

“Columbia College offers students in law enforcement many avenues to pursue an education, and we’re proud to partner with the MSA,” said Patty Anderson, associate director of business development in the Columbia College Marketing office.

In order to become a police officer after graduating from the MSA academy, many law enforcement agencies require applicants to have completed at least 60 credit hours from an accredited college, or 30 or more credit hours along with two years of service as a federal active duty military member or as a full-time certified peace officer. As part of this new partnership, the MSA recommends its cadets attend Columbia College during their time in the academy, while the college offers a quality education at an affordable price, along with perks such as the Partners in Law Enforcement (PILE) program.

“Well-trained and educated individuals tend to be better law enforcement officers,” said Kevin Merritt, training director with the MSA. “We are excited about our partnership and the ability to offer our academy graduates a true career path to success.”

The PILE program awards up to 24 hours of academic credit for students who have completed a qualifying police academy such as the MSA’s, which provides for a quicker path to a degree and could help save thousands of dollars in tuition. Columbia College’s Criminal Justice Administration and Human Services Department allows students to pursue an education in criminal justice administration, forensic science and human services, offering such concentrations as corrections, counseling, law enforcement and more.

Columbia College welcomes new students with ‘Explorientation’

Columbia College welcomes new students with ‘Explorientation’

New Columbia College students lined up, one by one, in Southwell Complex to shake the hand of Provost and Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs David Starrett and receive the pin that would serve as a tiny, metal microcosm for their higher education experience to come.

The pin features Rogers Gate, the large stone archway leading onto Bass Commons, through which the students run the day before classes start in their first fall semester during the “Storm the Gate” event. Ivy is another prominent feature on the pin, the vines that Columbia College students drape themselves in on the morning of graduation day for the Ivy Chain ceremony, which has been a tradition at the college since 1900.

“This pin is to remind you of the commitment you’ve made to yourself, your classmates, the institution and the community,” Starrett told the 223 new students who took part in the Columbia College Traditional Pinning Ceremony on August 24. “It will be a memento for you to remember this first day, this new beginning, when you stood with your classmates, embarking on your journey full of enthusiasm or excitement over the unknown.”

The new student pinning ceremony kicked off this year’s Explorientation festivities at Columbia College, a series of more than 30 events beginning the week before the start of the fall semester (August 28) and ending with homecoming weekend (October 7).

At the pinning ceremony, after receiving their pins from Starrett, new students advanced to a line of the 10 department chairs, where the faculty affixed the pins to their shirts and the students started putting faces to the names of their instructors.

Student Government Association President Daymond Dollens, a junior, told the crowd that he likened a student’s path through school to riding a bicycle.

“Today is the day the training wheels come off,” Dollens said. “Free to ride without the assistance of your parents, they still remind you to wear your helmet, watch for traffic and give lots of other pieces of advice, but you’re riding on your own. All the efforts by your parents and teachers helped you build a strong reputation and a solid foundation. The way you ride that bike, who you ride it with and the decisions you make along the way will determine how safe you are and how far you will ride.”

Family and friends got the chance to take pictures with their new college pupils and wish them a fond farewell as they embarked on a new journey at Columbia College.

Columbia College’s Stricker goes from walk-on to national champion

Columbia College’s Stricker goes from walk-on to national champion

August 12, 2017 – via the eMissourian.com

From walk-on to national champion. It’s the type of story every athlete dreams about. But, for Washington High School graduate Abby Stricker, it was no dream. Stricker, a 2015 Washington High School graduate, became Columbia College’s first-ever individual NAIA champion in May when she won the NAIA long jump title in Gulf Shores, Alabama. “Going into the finals, I was seventh or eighth,” Stricker said. “They take nine to the finals, and only eight make All-American, so I knew I had to do something. On my second-to-last jump, I felt like everything went perfect. It was the perfect jump. I landed one centimeter longer than the top jump to win the title.”

Cougar athletics back in action for fall sports season

Cougar athletics back in action for fall sports season

The Columbia College men’s soccer team had high hopes entering the 2016 season.

Coming off a berth in the NAIA quarterfinals the year before and returning most of their core contributors, the Cougars earned a No. 7 preseason ranking nationally. But they got off to a slow start, losing their first four matches before coming back to win the American Midwest Conference Tournament title. They bowed out in the first round of the NAIA Tournament.

With 14 newcomers dotting this year’s roster, Columbia College men’s soccer enters the season just outside of the national top 25. Coach John Klein likes his team’s odds.

It’s a good spot for this team,” Klein said. “There’s a lot of new pieces that are very strong that, once everybody figures out how to play together, this is a group that could go pretty far. It will certainly compete for the top of the conference.”

This fall, men’s and women’s soccer, women’s volleyball and men’s and women’s cross country are all looking to continue the standard of excellence they’ve set in recent years.

The Cougars’ volleyball team, which won the 2015 national championship, followed that with a berth in the NAIA quarterfinals last year and is ranked No. 8 heading into this season. The men’s cross country team is coming off a conference championship, and freshman Naomi Payne won the individual AMC title for the women.

The women’s soccer team, which Klein also coaches, posted the best finish of its five-year history, going 19-2-3 on the season and advancing to the national quarterfinals. The Cougars logged 19 shutouts last year and averaged 3.96 goals per game. Leading scorers Laurie Frew, Kelsey Mirts, Lucy Kingsley and Molly Klein all return to this year’s squad, which is ranked No. 9 nationally heading into the season.

“They all bring something different to the table. Frew is the leader. She’s the senior. She’s just the best soccer player we have. She’s so clean on the ball,” John Klein said. “It’s good to have all four of those girls. Then we’ve added a couple more that will be dangerous as well.”

Klein was encouraged by both teams’ performances in a preseason scrimmage against Division-II Truman State. The women tied the Bulldogs, 1-1, and Michael Mayberry scored the lone goal for the men on a header.

Klein feels that with returners such as Mayberry, last year’s leading scorer, and newcomers such as 6-foot-4 goalkeeper Nicolau Neto, the Cougars’ men’s team can surprise some people this year.

“I’m really excited about what’s going on early with our men’s team,” Klein said.

Warner’s perspective key in baseball, CSI career path

July 27, 2017 – via the Sedalia Democrat

Sedalia Bombers slugger Andrew Warner has a good eye. Bearded and 6-foot-2, Warner lumbers to the plate to the sounds of Marvin Gaye and leans back to examine the defense. There is a hearty smack when he squares up a pitch, often not in proportion to a swing that appears effortless, like a flick of the wrist. From swatting homers to taking walks, Warner’s plate discipline is a product of sharp vision. He brings the same attention to detail to crime scene investigation photography as a criminal justice major at Columbia College.

Columbia College to construct $20 million academic and residence hall

Columbia College to construct $20 million academic and residence hall

Click here to support the construction of the new academic and residence hall!

Following the approval of its campus development plan by the Columbia College Board of Trustees and the Columbia City Council, the college is announcing the construction of a new academic and residence hall. The facility will serve as the new home for the School of Business Administration and will also include a 150-bed residence hall.

With a 13-percent growth in student enrollment this past fall and continued projected growth in the fall of 2017, additional student housing is a top priority. The college will break ground on the structure in early spring 2018 with plans of welcoming students when the Fall Semester begins in August 2019. The approximately 60,000-square foot, four-story facility will be located just north of Brown Hall and south of R. Marvin Owens Field. Its estimated cost is $20 million. The cost of the project will be covered entirely through fundraising and existing college funds.

“Our rapid growth here in Columbia means we simply don’t have enough space to house our students, many of whom prefer to live on campus,” said Dr. Scott Dalrymple, president of Columbia College. “While there may be vacant rooms elsewhere in the city, those don’t help Columbia College students wishing to live and study on our campus. This is also an opportunity to provide a home for our growing School of Business Administration.”

Cougar softball enjoys record-breaking season

Cougar softball enjoys record-breaking season

Watching her team drop its season opener told Columbia College softball coach Wendy Spratt pretty much all she needed to know about the 2017 Cougars.

Columbia College, coming off a season in which it missed out on postseason play, took on reigning national champion Oklahoma City University on a neutral field in Fort Worth, Texas, on Feb. 10 to kick off both teams’ seasons and suffered a 2-0 loss.

But it was a loss in which the Cougars put more runners on base than Oklahoma City and chased the Stars’ starting pitcher after four innings.

“Although we didn’t win the game, we played very well with them,” Spratt said. “At that point, our confidence really soared, because this is the best team in the country and we just played with them. So we can be the best team in the country. I think that was the best thing that could’ve happened to us.”

The Cougars lost only six more times during the rest of their 48-7 campaign, winning both the American Midwest Conference regular-season and tournament champions, advancing to their first NAIA World Series since 2010 and finishing fourth at the national championship tournament, their best World Series finish in program history.

Columbia College posted a 23-1 record in the AMC, and four of its seven losses came to teams that finished in the top 25 nationally, including national champion Oklahoma City, runner-up Corban and third-place team LSU-Alexandria. Another came to Missouri S&T, an NCAA Division II team.

“They believed in themselves and each other. We had that confidence going in, before the season started,” said Spratt, who was an All-American as a player for the Cougars and has led them to an 832-392 record over 23 years as head coach. “They knew the potential of the team that we had. Everybody wanted to get better every day, and they worked hard because they knew that we could win a national championship. That was our goal all year, and they really believed they could do it.”

After the close call against Oklahoma City, the Cougars swept their way to six wins and the Gulf Coast Invitational gold bracket championship in Gulf Shores, Alabama, at the beginning of March, run-ruling then-No. 12 Campbellsville for the title.

Columbia College had lost all five games at Gulf Shores the year prior.

“We saw how well we could all play and knew that, if we kept that up, we would end up where we did this year,” said sophomore infielder Molly Carter, a Columbia native. “We put in a lot of hard work, because we knew we had high expectations.”

The Cougars combined a potent offensive attack up and down their lineup with a devastating one-two punch in the pitching circle to make history this season.

The first three batters in the order all earned All-America honors: leadoff hitter Carly Spalding and Carter, the three-hole hitter, were first-team All-Americans, while No. 2 batter Theresa DeCosty was a second-team All-American.

Spalding set Columbia College single-season records in hits (95) and stolen bases (57), while Carter set program records in home runs (14) and runs batted in (87). DeCosty hit .439 for the season, with 48 stolen bases in 50 attempts.

“We were fast and aggressive on the bases and caused havoc for other teams,” Spratt said. “You got Molly up, she’s going to put it in fair territory and hit it hard. You’ve got two girls with exceptional speed that can run the bases. It didn’t happen very often that one or the other wasn’t on base when Molly came up. Therefore, it set up her RBI record.”

In the circle, Paxton Welch and Lauren McCroskie each won more than 20 games and maintained earned-run averages of less than 1.50, as the Cougars outscored their opponents by an average of 5.4 runs per game. Welch went 23-5 with a 1.44 ERA, and McCroskie was 22-2 with a 1.40 ERA.

Spratt said that, while in years past Welch carried the team in the postseason, McCroskie was very effective at sharing the load this year. The two had skill sets that complemented each other, and graduate assistant and pitching coach Jordan Logan called pitch sequences that played to their strengths.

“We were kind of able to feed off each other. If one of us was having a bad day, we were able to pick each other up,” Welch said. “We are both good pitchers, but we’re different styles. She (pitches) in a little more and has a better offspeed than I do, but I go out a little more and mine might break a little more than hers do. It just kind of worked out to where we could go back and forth and switch teams up with that difference.”

The Cougars are losing a lot of talent to graduation after this season, with DeCosty, McCroskie, Spalding and Welch all moving on. But Columbia College also returns the core of a lineup that includes Carter, .400 hitters Allyson Metz and Rachel Sullivan and run producers Alexandra Linck and Karli Leeper, as well as pitcher Kaitlyn Nottelmann, who posted a 2.27 ERA over 24 2/3 innings as a freshman this year.

They’ll get the chance to build off the success of the 2017 Cougars, who reached heights no other Columbia College softball team had before.

“It’s just been a really special year. It was like a family,” Spratt said. “The coaching staff, we talked about it daily if not weekly, that this was a special team, this was a special time. We were going to enjoy every moment of it, because it doesn’t happen every year.”

Nursing student wins March of Dimes award

Nursing student wins March of Dimes award

Angela Crutchfield had to hear her name announced twice before she fully realized what had happened.

Crutchfield, standing on stage at the Marriott St. Louis Grand Hotel last Nov. 19 with other finalists at the March of Dimes’ Nurse of the Year Awards Gala, needed a moment to let it sink in that she had won the trophy in the Licensed Practical Nurse category.

“I was like, ‘Wait … you mean me?’” Crutchfield said. “I didn’t have a speech. I didn’t have anything. My son, he’s a big sports player, he’s, like, yelling from the audience.

“It felt really good. It was unexpected.”

Crutchfield has been an LPN for 14 years and currently works in MU Health Care’s inpatient neurosciences unit. She is pursuing her Associate of Science in Nursing degree at Columbia College — with an expected graduation date this December — and plans to move on to a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

She was one of more than 600 nurses nominated for the March of Dimes awards last year, due to her efforts when she was working with foster children in MU Health Care’s otolaryngology department. She noticed that some of the foster children’s information was still accessible by former foster parents or their biological parents, some of whom had been removed from the children’s lives because of abuse or other forms of neglect.

From Crutchfield’s awareness, MU Health Care was able to team with the Family Support Division in the state Department of Social Services to come up with a new system.

“It was this red flag. The university was like, ‘We never thought of that,’” Crutchfield said. “We kind of figured out some different methods and policies to put forth and a phone number hotline to call if we had somebody who needed immediate removal of being able to access that child.”

After her nomination for the March of Dimes award, Crutchfield had to fill out a questionnaire about her qualifications and aspirations in the field of nursing. Not her strongest suit, given that she is not used to stepping into the spotlight and bragging about herself.

So, when the literal spotlight shined on her during her acceptance speech at the gala, it was an even more unusual — yet greatly appreciated — moment.

“The recognition you get from patients is important and what keeps you going,” Crutchfield said. “But when, also, your peers recognize that, it’s kind of a different feeling. It gives you a feeling of accomplishment for sure.”

(Submitted by Angela Crutchfield)

Crutchfield somehow finds a way to fit work, school and being a mother of four children into her jam-packed schedule. She juggles hospital shifts and tries to secure at least two “off” days per month, though she still has studying and other tasks to fulfill.

She said she appreciates the flexibility Columbia College has afforded her while she pursues her associate degree. That, combined with the reputation of the school’s nursing program, has her positioned well for the future.

“I’ve had some charge nurses and management (at the university) saying that they actually prefer to hire from Columbia College over some of the others,” Crutchfield said, “because of the hands-on and bedside experience and the things that we’re taught here as far as patient interaction, instead of just focusing on the book knowledge. They do a lot more clinical application through this program than, I think, some of the other ones.”

Crutchfield hopes that, by furthering her education in the field, she can be more informative as a go-between for doctors and patients, someone who can interact with patients and relay diagnoses and instructions from doctors in ways that are easily accessible.

She told the crowd at the March of Dimes gala that, because she’s in school to become a registered nurse, she may be back as a winner in an RN category at some point in the future.

Maybe she’ll even have a speech prepared.

“The nursing profession can be very tiring. You can feel like you’re not making a difference,” Crutchfield said. “So it kind of rejuvenated me, actually, after over a decade of nursing. It made me almost feel young in this career again. Like, ‘I can do this. We can make a difference.’”
