- Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
By Ryan Clark
CHS Communications Director
There's a saying in life that you always want to leave your audience wanting more.
That's right — students got to make their own indoor S'mores (using either Hershey bars, or the more extravagant Reese's cups). There was even a (simulated) roaring fire.
It was all held in CTW 127 Friday afternoon, part of CHS Scholarship Celebration Day, which recognized those outstanding CHS students who were awarded scholarships for the 2022-2023 academic year.
"I wanted to do it because it's always nice at this time of year to acknowledge that performance matters and that success matters," said Casey Shadix, PhD and director of the Office of Student Affairs. "Hopefully, it's a little treat and a little motivation in a difficult part of the semester, I think."
Those who attended were able to take their own marshmallows, brown them over a flameless heater, then combine them with Graham crackers and a choice of candy bar for a gooey treasure.
"It's good — never had a Reese's on one before, but it's good," said Ryan Goodson, who was honored with a Medical Center Enhancement Scholarship.
Shadix made sure to note that for students interested in applying for scholarships next year, the process will begin Feb. 1.
