Columbia Campus' 50th Anniversary

Dear MSD Community:
I am excited to share with you that during the 2022-2023 academic year, MSD will celebrate Columbia Campus' 50th anniversary.
Debbie Stokes-Hill, a student of Columbia Campus and a member of MSD's graduating Class of 1984, and Michelle Smith-Ailstock, an MSD alumna Class of 1981 and a retired teacher of thirty years at Columbia, have been selected co-chairs of this special milestone.
As the planning for the year-long event begins, the co-chairs have rolled up their sleeves and are calling for students, staff, families, alumni, stakeholders, and community members to help make this special celebration a success.
Please view this video to meet the co-chairs of the celebration and learn what their plans are as they begin forming committees.
Please also visit our new webpage at for the latest announcements. We will continue to update the webpage throughout the year with more information. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the co-chairs via email at
We look forward to celebrating Columbia Campus with the community.
Onward to the golden anniversary celebration!
