Honors on a roll—Birmingham-Southern College recognized its first-ever NCAA Division III All-American Track and Field athletes April 6 between games of a BSC baseball doubleheader on the campus. Tiarra Goode, a sophomore history and political science interdisciplinary major from Huntsville; Jessica Thornton, a junior biology major from Madison; and Robert Willett, a junior psychology major from Mobile; were named 2012 NCAA Division III All-Americans following the NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field National Championships on the campus of Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa, in March. This was the program’s first year of postseason eligibility. Goode ran the 60-meter indoor hurdles in 8.56 seconds at the National Championships to become this year's NCAA Division III national champion. Her time was a personal record, stadium record, and NCAA record. Willett placed third in the men’s 800-meter run with a time of 1:53.77, and Thornton placed fifth in the women’s 800-meter run with a time of 2:16.47. Pictured from left to right are BSC President Gen. Charles Krulak, Goode, Thornton, Willett, and Head Coach Kenneth Cox.
Giving an assisting hand—Birmingham-Southern fraternities are helping some chronically-ill children make fun memories. On March 27, the executive board of the college’s Interfraternity Council (IFC) presented a check for $1,000 to Children’s Harbor, a local nonprofit that helps children who are dealing with long-term illnesses. The IFC had hosted a fall band party at the Urban Environmental Park and Lake on campus called “Blackout” to kick off its fundraising effort. Pictured (from left) are Joseph Ronderos, a sophomore history major who serves as vice president of administration; Austin Bier, a senior biology major who serves as vice president of programming; Nicklaus Lynch, a junior math major who serves as vice president of campus relations; Ben Russell, counselor at Children’s Harbor; Gerald Saltkill, a junior business major who serves as vice president of judiciary; Grant Williams, a junior biology major who serves as vice president of recruitment; and Coty Lovelady, a junior religion major who serves as IFC president.
