Over 50 Columbia International University students organized games, prepared food and passed out back-to-school packets to elementary school students at the annual Crane Creek Community Day on Aug. 18. The Crane Creek neighborhood is located just east of the CIU campus, on the opposite side of Monticello Road from CIU.
The event is held in partnership with two neighborhood churches that are both lead by CIU alumni. The pastor of Temple Zion Baptist Church is Andre Melvin and the pastor of Haskell Heights Baptist Church is Glenn Wigfall. Both hold a Master of Divinity degree from CIU Seminary & School of Ministry.
