From the Land Down Under: Student-Athlete Ben Janssan

November 19, 2019

In his time at SPSCC, sophomore Ben Janssan has taken on much more than the role of international student-athlete.

Originally from Australia, Ben attended high school in Centralia before joining the Clipper Men's Basketball team in 2018. Kicking off his second year at the college—and on the basketball team—Ben has connected with nearly all sectors of campus and works in the Clipper Cafe and as part of the Social Media Team. He also excels in the classroom and frequently lands on Academic Honor Role lists.

Beginning Nov. 11, SPSCC will welcome Eun-Kyung Suh to The Gallery at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts for “Stay”. Suh is a Full Professor of 3D Art at the University of Minnesota, Duluth.

Suh’s work explores the historical and modern meanings of wall – a continuous vertical brick or stone structure that closes or divides and area of land. Suh’s silk walls include transferred maps of areas and lost homes along the Green Line of the Israeli West Bank Wall.

“I hope to symbolize the lost lives of the people affected by this arbitrary configuration,” stated Suh.
