Send us your stories of Columbus State students helping with COVID-19

#CStateChampions | Tuesday, June 23, 2020

We're seeking stories of Columbus State students and grads who are at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19. We'll be featuring notable stories on the Columbus State homepage as the country continues to fight the pandemic.

Stories include:

  • Allyson Stought, a Respiratory Care grad who traveled to NYC to help operate ventilators.
  • Michael Foy Armstead, a STEM grad who's operating one of Battelle's respirator purification systems in Colorado.
  • Lena Smith and Christy Horne, two Interpreting Education Program grads who provide American Sign Language translation at Gov. Mike DeWine's press conferences.

If you know of a student or grad with an interesting story, please send their contact information to
