I found some time today to explore and have managed to answer my own
question.  Unsurprisingly, org has what I need!

Using the answer given to a related question on StackExchange [1], I
came up with this simple function:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
  (defun esf/todo-column-display-filter (column-title value)
    (when (and value (not (string= value ""))
               (or (string= column-title "SCHEDULED")
                   (string= column-title "DEADLINE")))
      (format-time-string "%e %b %A" (org-time-string-to-time value))))
  (setq-local org-columns-modify-value-for-display-function

Makes my column view much easier to read for seeing my todo list!

Thank you,
