Dancing with the (Athens) stars

Courtney Gale (BSA ’98) received a standing ovation at “Dancing with the Athens Stars” in March. Gale and her partner, Ron Putman, at right, performed to Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” and took home the second-place audience favorite award. The performance was a comeback of sorts for Gale, an Athens-Clarke County police sergeant who was stabbed multiple times in 2007 while working a security shift at a local supermarket. She was still recovering from her injuries when she started dance lessons with Putman last fall. Six months later, her performance on “Dancing with the Athens Stars” helped raise $93,000 for Project Safe, an anti-domestic violence agency. The event is modeled after the popular TV show.
