Trustee to deliver history lectures in Delaware

Dr. Richard Owens

Columbus State trustee Dr. Richard Owens, who is a professor, historian and past president of Heidelberg College in Tiffin, Ohio, and West Liberty State College in West Virginia, will speak on various historical subjects throughout the summer at the Delaware County Senior Center, on Cheshire Road. 

Dr. Owens has written quite a number of books on history and historical fiction, including Potomac: A Story of American in 1940, The Neutrality Imperative, Vigilance and Virtue: A Biography of General and Ambassador Horace Porter, 1837-1921, and more. 

His lecture series at the senior center begins July 10 with “Living on the Edge: Economics and Society in the 1920s.”  On July 24, he will present “Fighting the Great Depression,” and August 7 will feature “The Election of FDR and American Politics, 1920-1940.”  The series will wrap up on August 21 with a presentation drawn from Dr. Owens’ book Potomac, which is a work of historical fiction about Nazi intrigue in America. All the presentations will be free and open to the public. 

More information about the lecture series can be found online at www.delawareseniorcenter.com

At House Of Hope's June 22 Open House for its new outpatient clinic, many attendees had a Columbus State connection.  “At one point it looked like a Columbus State reunion,” said Dianne Fidelibus, assistant professor in MH/AS/DD.   “Someone said ‘Look at the impact you (CSCC) have on this community!  You should be proud!’ and we certainly were!”  Attending the open house were, (from left) Carolyn Ireland, House of Hope executive director and Columbus State graduate; Stephanie Hobbs - (HoH) OP counselor and graduate; Giti Koons -  OP (HoH) counselor and graduate; Brenda Henry, (H oH )program manager and graduate; Brad Lander, Ph.D. OSU East - adjunct faculty; Dianne Fidelibus, assistant professor;

Ryan Patterson, current student in practicum at HoH; Kelsey Piccirillo , current student in practicum at HoH ;Mike Brown, Drug Court clinician and graduate; and Steven Rendina, adjunct faculty.

Department to change name

The Institutional Advancement Office has changed its name to Marketing and Communications.  “IA is kind of an outdated term, and Marketing and Communications more accurately reflects what we do,” said Will Kopp, vice president.  The office currently administers functions including advertising, media relations, web content, internal communications, special events, social media, college publications, video production, photography, and other marketing activities. The community outreach function, headed by Barbara Smith-Allen, will move under the new President’s Office Chief of Staff position when it is filled.
