CofC Alum Works to Revitalize Charleston’s Eastside

Sociology Graduate Lives on Charleston’s Eastside and Works to Improve Community Charleston, SC March 18, 2013 – “Not in my backyard” is not in College of Charleston alumna Samantha Sammis’ vocabulary. The 2011 graduate’s backyard is Charleston’s urban Eastside neighborhood where she lives and works, applying the principles of asset-based community development to identify and engage her neighbors and strengthen the neighborhood. Her commitment to the neighborhood started in 2011 when Sammis recruited some friends from the College to join her on Friday afternoons on an Eastside basketball court to play ball with neighborhood children –a commitment they continue today. In the process, she met their families and began to understand some of the issues in the neighborhood. As a […]

Willis Hall Ready To Rock, Roll and Rebound

Willis Hall Ready To Rock, Roll and Rebound

BRANNAN LAHODA CofC Athletics Communications Charleston, SC – “I probably wouldn’t look very good in the shorts,” said College of Charleston junior forward Willis Hall pondering life on a 1980s basketball court. “I have an old-school feel to my game. It’s not pretty or flashy, but I just go in there and do what I gotta do.” It’s that hard-nosed attitude that fits in perfectly with the philosophy of first-year head coach Doug Wojcik, whose formative years at the U.S. Naval Academy drove his belief in solid defense and rebounding. Of anyone on the Cougar roster, Hall exemplifies those traits the most. “I work hard,” Hall said. “I try to hustle and be where I’m supposed to be on the […]
