Each year, two Sterling College students who reflect the ideal Sterling College graduate receive the Professor Fran Jabara Leadership Award in conjunction with the Outstanding Male and Female Graduate award. This year, the award was presented to Nathan Ehresman of Wichita, Kan., and Emily Walker of Sterling, Kan.
Twelve students and staff members from Sterling College drove to Wilmington, Del., to participate in Christian missions during their spring break. Wilmington is the home of Urban Promise, a non-profit organization whose goal is to equip children and young adults with skills necessary for academic achievement, life management and personal growth.
Addie Swihart of St. Francis, Kan., and Kenny McGrath of Apple Valley, Calif., were named the Outstanding Students and recipients of the Fran Jabara Leadership Award for the Sterling College class of 2011. They were awarded this honor at the 2011 commencement ceremony held on May 14, 2011 at Cooper Hall.
