Sterling College Director of Marketing Communication Karin Swihart is very excited about both the new position at the College: web marketing manager, and the person filling it: Sarah Contrucci. "Our office will be so much more productive this year," Swihart said. "Sarah will not only be able to ‘manage' our Web site, but her background in marketing and art-and her strong creative skills-will also enable her to be innovative in using the Web, e-mail, online advertising and social media to advertise the College. I am praising the Lord for leading her to us."
When high school seniors and their parents search the Princeton Review's 2011 Best Colleges list, they will find Sterling College, Sterling, Kan., recommended as one of the "bests" in the Midwest region. These "regional bests" constitute only 25% of the nation's four-year colleges-"a select group, indeed."
There were two major requirements for art submitted to the Faith as Art: Art as Faith exhibition at Olivet Nazarene University: the artist had to follow the Christian faith and the art had to be digital. Sterling College Art Department Chair William Morse fits the first requirement, and he does quite a bit of work with digital compositions. Three of his submissions were accepted to the national juried exhibit, which runs from September 28 through October 25 in the Brandenburg Gallery at the Larsen Fine Art Center in Bourbonnais, Ill.
Dr. Gladys Ritterhouse, chair of Sterling College's Teacher Education Program (STEP), says that new professors Dr. Marielena Righettini and Assistant Professor Debra Millikan are "answers to a lot of prayer, STEP's summer miracle." She is referring to the fact that both Righettini and Millikan, though hired just this summer, are both professionally and missionally excellent fits for the College and the STEP program.
