TWIN FALLS – As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our local community, the College of Southern Idaho would like to offer a message of support and encouragement. After seeing different groups use social media to share COVID-19 musical compilations throughout the summer, members of the college administration and faculty came up with an idea to create a video message of their own, tied to a much beloved song from a bygone era.
“The late Bill Withers could not have imagined how relevant his 1972 song ‘Lean on Me’ would be to those of us living through a pandemic 2020,” notes CSI President L. Dean Fisher. “In the coming days, it is my hope that others outside of CSI will also pick up on this message of hope and inspiration and will spread it throughout the communities we serve.”

Credit goes to several individuals for taking an idea that CSI might be able to create its own message and moving the idea to fruition. Fisher notes, “My sincere thanks go out to Scott Farkas, Serena Jenkins-Clark, and Ben Britton from the CSI faculty, and Alex Daw from the CSI Public Information Office, for lending their incredible talent and creativity, and for engaging in many long hours of work over the last two weeks to bring us a CSI version of the ‘Lean on Me’ message.”
