I Support Columbia State because...

Mike Alexander

"…the opportunity and access the College provides rural students to advance their education. With Columbia State's campus in Clifton, students in Wayne County high schools can take AP, dual credit, and dual enrollment courses that give them a head start on their careers-opportunities only students in larger schools often have. We also have non-traditional students in our area that are able to attend college to advance their careers, when circumstances would not allow earlier in life, at a convenient, local campus."

Byron Davis, Branch Manager at the People's Bank Clifton office, has seen firsthand the positive impact Columbia State has had in the region during his career at the bank, where the two organizations hold a long-standing working partnership. Byron's role on the Foundation Board gives him a sense of giving back to the College for what he has seen it do for Wayne County.
