New Editor-In-Chief Looks to the Future


By: Kim Brimm

     Editor-in-Chief


    I am Kim Brimm and I am the newly appointed editor-in-chief of The Pillar. We have a unique opportunity here at Cooley. We are spread out over five campuses and two states. My staff and I have the job of getting you the news that matters to you whether you are in Michigan or Florida. The Pillar is the student voice and we want to hear from you. We are always looking for people to write. The editorial staff is working hard to build our staffs and bring you news. We have great ideas that we plan to implement in the fall. Be on the lookout for new columns, an ask the editor section, and photo and video journalism. We have joined the vast majority of print publications and entered into the digital world. The transition is ongoing but we are confident that we can make the student body, administration, faculty, and staff proud.



Anyone looking to be  involved with The Pillar should contact us at: pillar@cooley.edu.


Good look to everyone on finals and have a safe break!



Cooley Community Bands Together to Raise Money to Pay Medical Costs


Runners and walkers participate in 5k race to raise funds for Cooley professor who suffered a stroke


Professor Prygoski was teaching a constitutional law class at Cooley's Ann Arbor campus when he suffered a massive right-sided hemorragic stroke in March 2012. Since then he has made progress and continues to beat the odds everyday. Recovery from a brain injury is a very slow process. Most patients make significant improvements through rehabilitation. These rehabilitation services may include physical, occupational, and speech-language therapy. These services can be very costly because they are on a continual basis.

To help pay for these rehabilitation services, friends and neighbors organized a run to raise money. Students, faculty and members of the community gathered on June 23 for a 5k walk/run. The 5k had more than 300 participants ranging in age from 4 to 78. Participants raised over $72,000.
