Despite having more than 20 four-year colleges in her home state, Lauren Cox of Colby, Kansas, was ready to go to a school nearly 1400 miles away. On the day she planned to sign enrollment papers, she heard of Sterling College, 200 miles from Colby, and what she learned made her reconsider her decision.
Sterling College has hired a new student accounts coordinator/accountant for its business office. Heidi Shantz comes to the College from Grace Bible Church in Hutchinson, where she has worked as an administrative assistant for nearly four years. Shantz has a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Southwest Baptist University in Missouri.
During 2009 Dr.Brad Nix, Chair of the Music Department at Sterling College, has had two musical compositions accepted for publication and several others performed by high school, college, and church choral groups.
A team of five students and four alumni from Sterling
College in Sterling, Kansas, will leave on July 5 for Phuket, Thailand, for a
two-week mission trip.
While the team is in Thailand, they will be working with
Self Help and Empowerment, a Christian organization that helps women and
children trapped in the commercial sex trade.
