Savannah State captures MEAC baseball crown

Posted: May 19, 2013 - 5:44pm
 
 
NORFOLK, Va. — Peter Poole’s sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 10th
inning scored Darien Campbell to lift Savannah State over
Bethune-Cookman 1-0 on Sunday in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference
baseball championship game.
The Tigers’ Kyle McGowin (12-1) pitched all 10 shutout innings, allowing
seven hits and two walks with 11 strikeouts.
“Kyle took the ball on three days’ rest and showed what a champion is
all about,” SSU coach Carlton Hardy said. “In 10 innings of work, he
showed big-time production from a big-time player.”
It is SSU’s first MEAC baseball championship and its first conference
title since winning the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference in 1999.
“It was a well-played game against the defending champions,” Hardy said.
“We knew coming into the tournament that in order for us to win this
championship, we would have to play Cookman. Our kids played hard.
Pitch to pitch and inning by inning. It took a total team effort for us to win
this game.”
With one out in the 10th inning of the scoreless game, Campbell doubled
and Todd Hagen singled to put runners at the corners. Poole sent a shot
deep enough to right field that allowed Campbell to score the game
winning run.
Hagen, Poole and David Richards all had two hits each for Savannah
State. Bethune had seven hits but left nine runners on base and made
two errors. SSU managed eight hits, left seven runners on base and
made one error.
The Wildcats, who had won eight consecutive MEAC baseball titles,
stranded at least two runners on base in the fourth, fifth and ninth innings.
Montana Durapau pitched eight innings for B-CU but it was Jordan
Dailey who was tagged with the loss. Durapau struck out four batters
while Dailey pitched 1 2/3 innings and gave up three hits and one run
while striking out three.
SSU (33-21) reached the MEAC championship game with tournament
wins over Maryland-Eastern Shore, Norfolk State and Coppin State.
The Tigers earned the conference berth to the NCAA Regionals.

Greetings Alumni,
 
The university has an urgent need for scholarship funds and the University 
President has requested alumni help. Presently there is a list of more than
1,400 students who are trying to enroll but are failing to do so for various
reasons. The most prevelent reason is financial. 
 
Specifically, I am appealing to you for scholarship funds to help keep about
400 junior and senior level students in school. If SSU loses these existing
students, there will be very little or no student growth for 2012,
additionally graduation rate will continue to decrease. This is a critical
situation. The university can only maintain these students for about a week
without a commitment of the needed scholarship funds to cover the balance
of their tutition.
 
I need your commitment. Please respond IMMEDIATELY so that we can
support Dr. Dozier with her request. We are counting on you to do your
very best at this critical time.
 
Please give online today by clicking:
Annual Fund (Scholarships)
 
 Note: Your donation will be credited to the 2012 Million Dollar Campaign.
Please make check payable to SSU and mail to SSUNAA * PO Box 22843 *
Savannah, Ga. 31043.
 
 
In  Tiger Spirit (One SSU)

Dr. Dozier - (Current)SSU President
Dr. Dozier - (Current)SSU President

Dozier named president of

Savannah State University

ATLANTA – (May 9) – Dr. Cheryl Davenport Dozier has been named by the University

System of Georgia Board of Regents as the permanent president of Savannah State

University. The regents’ decision followed a recommendation by USG Chancellor

Hank Huckaby and ends the interim status she has held at SSU since April of 2011.

“Dr. Dozier has demonstrated a great capacity for leadership and a clear ability

to unite the campus and the community,” said Huckaby. “Her work as interim

has been impressive and it is the right decision to allow her the opportunity to

provide permanent leadership for the University.”

In expressing appreciation to the board and chancellor for their confidence in

her leadership, Dozier said, “I am proud of the progress that has been made thus

far but the pursuit of excellence is far from over.  With the commitment,

engagement and involvement of all of our stakeholders, I am certain that

Savannah State University will continue to thrive and flourish as it fulfills its

mission to develop productive members of a global society.”

Since taking charge as interim president, Dozier has launched a number of

programs dealing with improving graduation and retention rates, customer

service, and strengthening external relationships.

For example, Dozier launched the “Closing the Gap” initiative, which

provides one-time financial assistance to graduating seniors who have

an outstanding balance of $1,500 or less and exhausted all other

financial aid options. The program aims to ensure deserving students

are able to successfully complete their Savannah State University

education despite any last-minute financial crises or hardships that may

threaten their graduation.

Prior to being named interim president at Savannah State, Dozier served as

associate provost for Institutional Diversity at the University of Georgia from

2006-2011 and assistant vice president of Academic Affairs at the Gwinnett

University Center from 2002-2006. She is a tenured Professor in the School

of Social Work.

She is the co-principal investigator for the Peach State Louis Stokes Alliance

for Minority Participation, a $10 million National Science Foundation (NSF)

funded program at UGA that broadens the participation of minority students

in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics at SSU and six other

USG institutions.

Dozier is an active member of numerous professional and civic organizations,

including President of the Georgia Association for Women in Higher Education,

the board of the United Way of the Coastal Empire, Savannah Economic

Development Authority Advisory Council (newly elected), CEO Council of

the Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce and NCAA Mid-Eastern Athletic

Conference Council of Presidents. 

She earned a Doctorate in Social Welfare from Hunter College, at the Graduate

Center of the City University of New York and received a Masters in Social

Work from Atlanta University (now Clark-Atlanta), School of Social Work and

a Bachelors degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University, Teaneck, NJ.

SSU welcomes back teacher

education

 

Kenya Mosley, the first faculty member hired to teach in the new
Savannah State University School of Teacher Education, and
Jacquelyn Stephens, who was a faculty member of the old program
when it was transferred to Armstrong Atlantic State University in 1979,
tour SSU's recently renovated Morgan Hall, where the school is housed.
 
 
Savannah State University officials invited alumni and former faculty
of its old teacher education program to help them celebrate the opening
of the new School of Teacher Education Friday.
"Teacher education was once a thriving and vibrant part of Savannah
State University. Then in 1979 the program was transferred to Armstrong
Atlantic State University," Savannah State Interim President Cheryl
Davenport Dozier. "...In 2013 we will be offering classes again."
More than 30 years ago Savannah State's large state and nationally
accredited teacher education program was transferred to neighboring
Armstrong Atlantic State University as part of a federally mandated
desegregation plan by the State Board of Regents. For years the
university's large network of faculty and alumni lobbied to have those
programs restored. State officials recently approved Savannah State
to assist in its efforts to bolster science, engineering and technology by
offering Bachelor of Science majors in biology and mathematics with
The degree programs are still going through the mandatory developmental
process with the Georgia Professional Standards Commission. Once
approved SSU School of Teacher Education Director Elazer Barnette said
the university will be able to apply for national accreditation from the
National Council for the Accreditation for Teacher Education.
Students will begin enrolling in 2013 and four bachelor’s degree programs
will be available: biology and mathematics, both with concentrations in
secondary education; and civil and electronics engineering technology, both
with concentrations in secondary technology education. Classes will be held
in recently renovated Morgan Hall, the former home of the institution’s old
teacher education programs.
"It's wonderful to have the program back," said Jacquelyn Stephens, who
was acting head of elementary education in 1979 when the teacher
education program was moved. "Teacher education was really the heart and
soul of Savannah State."
Opening ceremony for new School of Teacher Education and rededication of Morgan Hall set for March 30

Morgan Hall exteriorJoin the Savannah State family at 3 p.m., Friday, March 30, to celebrate the new School of Teacher Education and get a glimpse of the renovations to historic Morgan Hall.

The School of Teacher Education is expected to enroll students in fall 2013.  Savannah State has not had teacher education since 1979, when the program was transferred to then-Armstrong State College as part of a federally mandated University System of Georgia desegregation plan.  In exchange, SSU received Armstrong's business administration program. 

Morgan Hall, now the home of teacher education, was constructed and dedicated in honor of Regent Samuel Hall Morgan of Guyton in 1936.  At that time, it housed facilities for the teaching of carpentry, woodworking, architectural and mechanical drafting, painting, industrial physics, typewriting, shorthand and bookkeeping

Six inducted into SSU 2011 Hall of Fame

Davis Jr., son of the late William R. "Bill" Davis; and Phyllis Oliver Mattox. (Photo by Carl Elmore/For the Savannah Morning News)

"From Savannah State University, You Can Go Anywhere From Here!"

That was the unofficial theme of the 2011 induction ceremonies
into the SSU Athletic Hall of Fame, held Friday night at Tiger Arena.

“This school has prepared me for everything I do today,” said
Richard Basil, SSU quarterback from 1988 to 1989 and head
coach of the Tigers from 2003 to 2005, as he accepted a plaque
inducting him into the hall of fame.

Basil said that, at first, the job of head coach seemed daunting.
There were so many responsibilities pulling him in so many
directions. But learning to take that in stride made everything
he's done since seem easy.

In an interview, Basil said he didn’t play with an “average Division
II team” at Savannah State.

“The abilities of these athletes is so tremendous,” he said.

All he had to do, Basil joked in his acceptance speech, was “pass
it to the big guy in the corner,” Shannon Sharpe.

Sharpe, the tight end Pro Football Hall of Fame member who played
with Basil at Savannah State, also credited SSU with putting him on
the road to success. Sharpe talked about growing up poor in
Glennville, about how Savannah State accepted him when other
universities wouldn’t.

“All I wanted was to provide for my grandmother and to make sure she
went to bed dry and she woke up dry, and that's what Savannah
State gave me,” he said.

Carl Crump, who averaged 25.6 points per game when he played
basketball at Savannah State from 1965 to 1969, also credited the
school with leading him to the life he has now. Crump said the degree
he got at Savannah State led to a 42-year career as an educator when
his pro basketball dreams didn't pan out.

“The SSU village had a hand in raising me, and they did a wonderful
job,” he said.

Six people were inducted into the SSU Athletic Hall of Fame on Friday.
They include:

• Basil, who transferred to Savannah State from East Central Community
College. In two years, he passed for 3,645 yards and 44 touchdowns. He
also rushed for 990 yards and 18 touchdowns. In 1988, Basil was the
Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) Offensive Player of
the Year. He served as an assistant coach at SSU for nine seasons and
was the head football coach for two and a half years.

• Crump, who scored 40 points on eight occasions and scored 36 points
against Armstrong State College (now Armstrong Atlantic State University)
during his career. Crump made the All-Southeastern Athletic Conference
(SEAC) team in 1965 and ’66.

• William Davis, who coached the SSU football team from 1986-92 and
2000-01. Davis won more games than any other football coach at
Savannah State with 52 wins. While at SSU, he was named the National
Coach of the Year by the Sheridan Broadcasting Network in 1989 and SIAC
Coach of the Year in 1986 and 1988. Under Davis, SSU made its only trip
to the Division II playoffs in 1992. Davis served as the SSU athletics
director from 1990-92. Davis died in 2002.

• Russell Ellington, who was a longtime coach at Beach High, coached
the men’s basketball team from 1976-85 and has the most wins by a
men’s basketball coach in SSU history with 148.Under Ellington, the
Tigers won the SIAC title in 1979, ’80 and ’81. The ’79 team reached
the Division III South Regional Basketball Tournament and missed
going to the Final Four after a one-point loss to Otterbein in the
South Quarterfinals. His record at SSU was 148-91, a .619
winning percentage. Ellington served as athletic director at Savannah
State from 1982-85. The Wadley, Ga., native died in 2007.

• Phyllis Oliver Mattox played on the women’s tennis team from 1994-98.
The Warner Robins native was a four-time All-SIAC player and was a
member of the 1996 and ’97 teams that won SIAC championships. Mattox
went undefeated during the 1997 season and was named the SIAC Player
of the Year.

• Kim Jones Walton, who played with the women’s basketball team from
1983-87. Walton averaged 11.2 points and 10.3 rebounds as a freshman
and 13.5 points and 11.1 rebounds as a sophomore. During her junior
season, she averaged 10.6 and 14.4 rebounds and made All-SIAC,
All-America and was the SIAC rebounding champion. As a senior, she
averaged 13.9 points and 15 rebounds a game.

LEGAL DEFENSE COALITION FOR THE
PRESERVATION OF PUBLIC HBCUS
 
FACT SHEET
 
Historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs)
are defined as institutions that were established before
1964 with the principal mission of educating African
Americans. They were created to address racism, a
segregated society, poverty and illiteracy. The Supreme
Court’s 1954 ruling in Brown v. Board of Education
declaring unconstitutional the doctrine of separate but
equal and ending de jure racial segregation in public
schools, also impacted higher education as states were
required to dismantle dual systems of higher education;
predominately white institutions were required to admit
black students who prior to this time could not attend
these institutions.
Georgia is home to ten HBCUs of which three
(Albany State University, Fort Valley State University
and Savannah State University) are public institutions. 
Albany State University was founded in 1903 as the
Albany Bible and Manual Training Institution; Fort Valley
State University was founded in 1895 as Fort Valley High
and Industrial School. It was consolidated in 1939 with
the State Teachers and Agricultural College; and the
Georgia General Assembly created Georgia State
Industrial College for Colored Youth, now Savannah
State University, in November 1980 pursuant to the
Second Morrill Land Grant Acct, which promised more
funding for the states but mandated the development of
black land-grant colleges in southern states or risk loss
of the federal funds.
 
The State of Georgia in preference to its white citizens
created two-year institutions within the same city with
existing public HBCUs: Darton College (a two-year
institution) located in Albany, GA was founded in 1963,
eight years after the Supreme Court’s decision in
Brown v. Board of Education. Armstrong Junior College
was founded in Savannah, GA in 1935; the institution
became a two-year unit of the University System of
Georgia in 1959, four years after the Supreme Court’s
decision in Brown v. Board of Education. The institution
became a four-year college in 1964, the same year of a
landmark piece of legislation, the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
The Legal Defense Coalition for the Preservation of Public
HBCUs is a Georgia non-profit corporation organized on
August 16, 2007. The following issues have been identified:
None of Georgia’s State HBCUs are either classified as
Research or Regional Universities, and those with
missions that would theoretically encompass objectives
in furtherance of programs to attract a wide and diverse
population are not adequately supported as State
Universities.
 
Certain programs offered by State HBCUs are duplicated
in majority universities located in the same geographic
area as State HBCUs without adequate demand to enable
the State HBCUs’ programs to thrive.
Where duplication of educational programs is warranted
by demand and would improve the variety of offerings
at State HBCUs if duplicated there, duplication of
educational programs does not take place. Facility
improvements at the State HBCUs are desperately
needed but are not sufficiently funded and, when
funded at all are slow to materialize.
 
The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia
provides funding to the State HBCUs in amounts
significantly less than the provision of funding to
majority-White universities.
None of the State HBCUs offer professional
degree programs.
