A family legacy and love of the ocean led Thomas Kinsey '13 to Spring Hill College. "Both my mother and father, as well as my father's parents, went to Spring Hill, so the college seemed like a good fit right away," said Kinsey. "I received scholarships from other schools, but the campus and location near the Gulf hooked me. Spring Hill is on the coast, near the beach, and close to my family in Fairhope (Ala.)."
Stephanie Myers put on her dancing shoes at age 4, and she's been dancing ever since.
Trained in ballet, pointe, tap and jazz, Myers was on the dance team in high school and re-founded the cheerleading team at Spring Hill her freshman year. "Dancing professionally was the next logical step for me to pursue my passion," she says.
It's not often that a chance encounter leads to the opportunity of a lifetime, but that's exactly what happened with Spring Hill senior Luke Hayes when he attended the 2013 Senior Bowl practice in Mobile, Ala.
Spring Hill College has always been a place where the uncommon is commonplace. So, it should not be surprising that the Badger rugby cub has broken new cultural ground.
In the spring of 2013, Spring Hill hired its first full-time rugby head coach to lead not only the men's squad, but to inaugurate a women's program as well. Just adding women's rugby was a radical idea in itself, but more surprising to some observers was the selection as head coach: Mollie McCarthy.
It’s not often Spring Hill College receives a substantial gift from someone with no connection to the college, other than a one-time campus visit and a drive down the Avenue of the Oaks. Yet, that’s precisely what led Ernst M. Cohn to name Spring Hill College as the beneficiary of his trust, now valued at $1.68 million.
The fund establishes the Ernst M. and Doris B. Cohn Endowed Scholarship for the Sciences. The scholarship is to be based on financial need and will be awarded annually to students majoring in math or science-related fields.
The Office of Communications and Institutional Marketing leads the College's efforts to articulate its mission and to generate goodwill and support through the news and sports media, publications, special projects and electronic communications.
