We look forward to further developing the outstanding marketing efforts that represent C-SC!”

The marketing team at C-SC is led by Alyssa Hummel, with creative design provided by Cheyenne Blackorby ’17, Senior Multimedia Designer, and Jayla Heindselman, Graphic Designer. Dr. Kim Gaither, Vice President of Enrollment Management, oversees the staff.
