Connors Takes a Big Stand Against Domestic Violence

This Valentine’s Day was spent with reason for many Connors State College Students. More than 75 students from campus organizations such as, Cowboy Baseball and Basketball, Phi Theta Kappa, Sociology groups and general students participated in the Women in Safe Home’s (WISH) “Kick Up Your Heels,” event held at Arrowhead Mall in Muskogee. West Campus Administrator and WISH Board Member Mike Jackson was very pleased with the turn-out of the event and the representation of Connors State College, “We want to bring awareness to this cause especially through young men taking a stand against domestic violence, and CSC has really taken an active role in the fight.”  Participants of the event wear high heels and walk around the event to show their support in stopping domestic violence. Mike Jackson added “The fight against domestic violence is especially dear to the students and staff, particularly after the death in a murder-suicide of Melinda Shatto, a CSC employee, last year and the death of former basketball player Anthony Hartfield Jr., during a robbery at his home in Oklahoma City.”
