Community Mediation Center at CSM Gets a New Look

Bryce Demby

Charles County's Community Mediation Center at the College of Southern Maryland has a fresh look thanks to a design created by a senior at the Robert D. Stethem Educational Center.

The Charles County Community Mediation Center was created this past fall to provide mediation as a free service to the county while educating people in the community about conflict management and providing direct grassroots education and outreach to individual community members. Mediation Center volunteer Marie Bottoms, a business education teacher who works at Robert D. Stethem Educational Center, suggested involving the Interactive Media Production Class to create a logo for the center.

Mediation Center Director Julie A. Walton worked with Stethem Instructor Kim Clements to give junior and senior students a chance to design logos for consideration.

Of the logos created, the design by senior Bryce Demby was selected and the Charles County Community Mediation Center provided Demby with a certificate of appreciation and a CSM portfolio for his creative design with the new logo.

Demby will be attending CSM in the fall.

The Charles County Community Mediation Center provides mediation, facilitation, outreach and education for citizens of Charles County, and models collaborative problem-solving as the standard to address challenging conversations. The center provides training for volunteer mediators and facilitators, and mediation services are available for free to the citizens of Charles County.
