From the June 30, 2016 Columbus State Update --
And the Gold Team Award went to the Thurgood Marshall and the Supreme Court Exhibit, Film and Lecture Series team. This team project began with an opportunity to engage the community with the civil rights issues detailed in Wil Haygood’s book “Showdown: Thurgood Marshall and the Supreme Court Nomination that Changed a Nation,” released last October. As the college made plans for Wil’s speaking engagements on campus, the team came together to develop a poster exhibit that supported the event, and invited the campus and community to learn more about civil rights and racial equality in our nation.
Using emerging technology, team members created the exhibit and online guide that was enjoyed and appreciated by the community, ranging from 5th graders to local business leaders. With the help of many collaborators, the team went beyond the exhibit to create a wide range of programs including a film series, an art exhibit, a lecture series, and a companion display and programming in the Bookstore. This innovative and extraordinary program of exhibits and events provided the campus and community with the opportunity to learn more deeply about events and individuals that have had an impact on the way we live today.
The team members are: Lorien Anderson, Daryl Brown, [Robin Buser], Laurinda Gruber, Lis Huey, Kristine Kinzer, Dana Knott, Bruce Massis, Frank Neutzling, Ryan Scott, Derek Zoladz, Bob Fitrakis, Adam Moskowitz, Eric Neubauer, Irene Petten, James Stewart, Marilyn Howard, Jennifer Nardone, Zachary Hill, Sandra Zeller, and Lisa Petersen.
