Sharon Bartkovich Is Training for Avon's "In It to

Breast Cancer Walk
39.3 miles in two days
"I hope I
can count on your support. Every single dollar helps. I am
blessed to live in a "village" that helped me to raise
almost $2200 last spring. The 1250 of us who walked in the Rocky
Mountains last summer raised together over $2.6 million. What
that kind of money can do to help women diagnosed with cancer, their

Miriam Nunnally Honored, Nurses Lauded at Center Dedication
Brunswick nurses, three of whom graduated from Coastal Georgia,
inspired Hugh P. Nunnally, Jr., to make a million dollar gift to the
College. Calling Anne Barr and alumnae Cammie Hope, Nichole Lockhart,
and LaJoy Wilson his "angels," Nunnally said their
compassionate care not only aided his healing during hospitalization
a year ago, but also planted the seed of his idea to assist the
College's nursing programs.
The evening of March 24, the College honored the
Nunnally family and paid tribute to Coastal Georgia's nursing
students and graduates during the dedication of the Miriam and Hugh
Nunnally Center for Nursing Education. The $1 million commitment by
Hugh Nunnally in honor of his late wife, Miriam, specifically
supports capital projects and programming to benefit committed
nursing students and to further develop top-quality nursing
In her opening remarks, President Hepburn cited the
projected shortage of registered nurses in the U.S. health care
system and noted, "The vision and generosity of the Nunnally
family assures we will have generations of fine nurses in Coastal

Student's Service-Learning Project for BUSA
2106 Evolves into Community Recognition
Stacy Woodcock '11 appreciates the irony that as a
full-time manager at Gilman Building Products in Yulee, Florida, she
is the Camden County Habitat for Humanity 2010 Volunteer of the Year.
Her Business Environment Community Service Learning project for her
Environment of Business course (BUSA 2106) is responsible for
introducing her to the organization.
"I had a misconception that Habitat gave houses
away. I quickly learned that wasn't accurate," Stacy says.
"Habitat is a hand up, not a handout. They are an amazing group
of people with contagious enthusiasm."
Stacy was one of five students who volunteered to work
with Habitat to fulfill her business course requirements for a
community service-learning project during spring term 2010. A minimum
of fifteen hours of service are required for the course, according to
Dr. Craig Fleisher, Dean of the School of Business and Public
Affairs. Stacy continued to volunteer following completion of the
"I started and just kept going," she explains.
"The staff asked me to serve on the planning committee for
Camden County's 2010 Builders Ball, Habitat's big annual fundraiser,
while I was still involved with the service-learning project. I was
worried about the time commitment, but I just couldn't say no. Then I
was asked to serve on the events planning committee for 2011 and I
help out in the administrative office when my schedule permits.
"I was shocked and honored when I received the
award at the Camden County Habitat for Humanity volunteer recognition
banquet in February. Christi Gallagher, the executive director, and
board members told me that my name was the one that everyone kept
bringing up over and over when they discussed who should be the honoree."

SACSCOC Reaffirmation of Accreditation Preparations
Accomplished and Compliance Certification Materials Submitted
Jim Hughes Lynch is psyched about SACSCOC - especially since one
of the critical milestones in the process has been completed this
month. The Compliance Certification Report (CCR) has been
formally submitted to the SACSCOC off-site reaffirmation team.
Dr. Lynch cites a long list of faculty and staff who
were involved in the process: Dr. Valerie Hepburn, Dr. Phil Mason,
Dr. Jerry Kiel, Dr. George Dupuy, Dr. Ann Crowther, Dr. Karen
Hambright, Dr. Keith Belcher, Dr. Kent Layton, Dr. Craig Fleischer,
Dr. Dougie Taylor, Tom Saunders, Jeff Preston, Michele Ham, Kay
Hampton, Bryan Lemons, Gale Barr, Bryan Sipe, Geri Culbreath, Lisa
Lesseig, Marsha Miller, Tony Wege, Debbie Holmes, Elizabeth
Weatherly, Zerelda Jackson, Apryl Dervay, Tiffany Cherry, John
Cornell, Kim Leggett, and Sandra Bunn.
From May 10-13, the off-site reaffirmation committee
reviews the College's CCR, meeting to finalize a report of their
findings. Following that meeting, the Commision staff
will forward those findings to the College SACSCOC leadership
team, scheduling a conference call during May 16-20 to discuss the
report. The College SACSCOC leadership team will then have the summer
to review and respond to those findings.
Dr. Lynch estimates the process is about 33% completed,
with September 1 as the next major deadline. To learn more
