Introductions for a new semester

By Brittaney Todd, director, Columbia College Region M1 and Fort Sill

Brittaney ToddFor any of you whom I have not yet met, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Brittaney Todd, and I am the new director at the Fort Sill location. I have been with Columbia College for seven years, beginning as an enrollment advisor in 2013. I feel very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to now work as location director for this institution.

Columbia College strives to hold the highest standards while each student is given the opportunity to excel academically. This is thanks to our exceptional staff and faculty, not only here at Fort Sill but across all our locations nationwide. It is my goal as director to provide you with the most rewarding academic experience possible.

I would also like to welcome Jennifer Warren, our new academic advisor here at Fort Sill. Jennifer has lived in the Lawton/Fort Sill area with her husband, Matt, and two boys for six years. As a prior service member (Army 14T) and active-duty spouse, Jennifer is well aware of the unique needs of our military-connected students. She is currently pursuing a master’s in museum studies at the University of Oklahoma, having received her undergraduate degree in liberal arts in 2019. Jennifer’s hard work, determination, and positive attitude since joining us in October have proven to be an essential asset to our students and staff. I hope you all have the opportunity to meet with her in the near future.

In closing, I want to thank each and every one of our students, faculty, and staff. We have all been faced with unprecedented challenges over the past several months, and I have seen an inspiring level of resilience in all of you. Despite these challenges, you have all pushed forward with flexibility and determination to reach your goals and maintain the high standards Columbia College has set.
