    dawn s early light By the dawn s early light on a near freezing morning in November seven military veterans most of them CIU students filed out of the Columbia International University administration building and with resolution in their step gathered at the CIU flagpole It was the start of a new day of education from a biblical worldview at CIU but not without these veterans first ceremoniously raising the flags of the United States of America and the state of South Carolina The new CIU ceremony was initiated by CIU staff member Gary Hartman who served in the U S Army as a musician As the flag was raised and the other veterans saluted Hartman played the National Anthem The Star Spangled Banner on the trumpet The raising of the flag used to be a daily duty of an employee of CIU s Physical Plant but Hartman who works in CIU s IT department thought that more honor was due the flags and the nation and state they represent So he began contacting CIU students who served in the military and asking for volunteers for the ceremony Veterans have a passion to be involved in CIU and are looking for a way to give back to CIU in at least some small capacity Hartman said Hartman was further encouraged by CIU s new and growing Chaplaincy program led by former Navy Chaplain Dr Mike Langston so he said adding the ceremony only made sense Hartman says there are 75 military veterans enrolled at CIU and he has formed an email group with many of them Hartman served in the Army from 1976 to 1996 playing the trumpet in Army bands across the nation and at international locations finishing his military career with the 282nd Army Victory Band at Fort

  • New Course to Address Educating “Children of Poverty” | Columbia International University
    for School Choice and chairs the Colorado State Advisory Committee to the U S Commission on Civil Rights Along with his wife Gant helped develop two urban Christian schools in Birmingham Ala Gant recently answered a few questions about his work and the course Ministering to Children of Poverty What do you remember most about CIU What I remember most is meeting my future bride and life ministry partner Cynthia Watts Gant class of 77 We have worked together in ministry for 35 years Describe your work as director of Urban School Services at ACSI I oversee approximately 300 Christian schools that identify themselves as urban schools For the most part these schools target and serve students who are mostly minority or under resourced or educationally and socially at risk My department assists these schools with products and services that equip and enable them to effectively serve this student population The name of the course you ll be teaching is Ministering to Children of Poverty Is there a link between education and poverty Definitely No matter the source of poverty an effective education has always been the ticket out of poverty This was true in my case as I was born in public housing to the daughter of a sharecropper it has been the case historically it is equally the case today There are many services that can be provided for children in poverty such as food clothing shelter toys etc These services only provide relief in poverty but they don t deliver from poverty An education is the only way to provide whole scale release from poverty In what ways can educators minister to children of poverty One of the reasons education is not working for the millions of children living in poverty in this nation is because an effective education requires more than content and credentials it requires connecting While they are important children are not ultimately impacted by curriculum textbooks buildings or the teacher s credentials When was the last time you heard a testimony from a former student about how a textbook impacted their life Impact and transformation are always a matter of life on life engagement From a relational standpoint God s people have at their disposal the most transformative power in all of creation agape love For under resourced children the winning formula is adequate resources plus academic rigor mingled with authentic relationships equals achievement results You and your wife Cynthia have helped develop two urban Christian schools in Birmingham Ala If there were more Christian schools in urban areas would it help alleviate poverty For the reasons cited above I firmly believe that Christian educators hold a vital key to helping alleviate poverty A reality is that Christian schooling alone cannot substantially address the problem In this nation there are nearly 25 million students whose family resources are such that they qualify for Free and Reduced Price Lunch This means that these children either live in poverty or close enough to it that
