University receives $75,000 grant aimed at crime prevention programming

Gov. Kay Ivey recently announced that Auburn University at Montgomery has been awarded a $75,000 grant to support crime-prevention programming and training for educators and community leaders.

The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs is administering the grant from Justice Department funds. AUM will use the funding to provide training in crime reduction methods and community safety measures. Those attending the training sessions will be expected to use the information gained to conduct their own “min-trainings and workshops” within their communities.

“No community is immune from crime, but police, business owners and residents can take steps to discourage unlawful activity in their neighborhoods,” Ivey said in a news release. “I am pleased to award these grants and I commend those who attend this program and carry the message back to their communities.”

Mourning the loss of Max Steinmetz

Max Steinmetz, a frequent guest speaker at AUM’s Holocaust Education Program, passed away recently in Birmingham, Ala. He was 96.

In 1942, at the age of 17, Steinmetz and his family were captured by the Nazis and sent to the Auschwitz concentration camp. His parents and sister were immediately put to death. Steinmetz and his brother, Henry, were eventually moved to Camp Dachau. While Henry died during his imprisonment, Steinmetz escaped during a Death March from Dachau and obtained a visa to move to the United States in 1948.

Steinmetz was gracious in sharing his experiences with AUM students, faculty and staff, as well as local high school students and community members, during the university’s Holocaust remembrance program.
