A pie, Mr. President?—Birmingham-Southern President David Pollick recently took on some pie throwers on campus for a good cause. The college's Kappa Delta sorority and Sigma Nu fraternity co-sponsored a “Pies with the President” fundraiser to support a food drive for the local nonprofit organization Urban Ministry. The four students who donated the most money got a chance to “pie” one of four men—either President Pollick, Residence Life Director Jonathan Lucia, Student Development Coordinator Kyle Lo Porto, or Dean of Students David Eberhardt (all four got pied). President Pollick (in photo) found himself the target of senior biology major Kelly Gronemeyer of Muscle Shoals. “Students donated money from their meal cards throughout the week,” said BSC sophomore and Kappa Delta member Lilla Goodwyn, who helped organize the fundraiser. “The event raised more than $1,500 for the food pantry at Urban Ministry.”
Partnering for student success—Learning at Birmingham-Southern does not end when students leave the college's gates. Here, BSC senior Brittany Gordon helps teachers and administrators at nearby Woodrow Wilson Elementary School recognize students with exemplary character traits with a Student of the Month pizza party, where they received a certificate of achievement and a goody bag. The college's Bunting Center for Engaged Study and Community Action provides numerous opportunities for BSC students to engage in volunteer and service-learning projects like this one.
