CSU responds to Charleston shooting
The Charleston Southern University family’s thoughts and prayers go out to all the individuals affected by the shooting last night at Emanuel AME Church.
“We are especially mourning the loss of Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, the mother of rising sophomore Chris Singleton," said President Jairy C. Hunter Jr. "Chris is a member of our baseball team. The CSU family is praying for Chris and his family during this painful time. CSU coaches and campus ministers are assisting the Singleton family as they deal with this tragedy.”
Head coach Stuart Lake said the players and coaches are hurting and are praying for Chris and his family. “Chris’s mother was just that parent that as a coach you are proud to have as part of your program. What she brought to our team is immeasurable,” said Lake.
Charleston Southern is planning a prayer vigil on Monday, June 22 at 11:30 a.m. in the Whitfield Center for Christian Leadership on the campus.
Charleston Southern is a liberal arts university and is one of South Carolina’s largest accredited, independent universities, enrolling 3,400 students. Recognized as one of America’s Best Christian Colleges, the University’s vision is to be a Christian university nationally recognized for integrating faith in learning, leading and serving.
