June 15, 2011
Sterling, Kan. – On Monday, the Sterling College Athletic Department went through a leadership transition. Gary Kempf, who was announced in February as the school’s new full time athletic director, took over the athletic director position and oversight of the athletic department.
“Sterling has an outstanding athletic tradition and our vision includes helping student-athletes fully develop academically, spiritually, and athletically,” said Kempf. “My vision of the athletic department is to facilitate the pursuit of excellence by our student athletes in all three of the categories.”
“We will work hard to continue to provide a good tradition of athletics here at Sterling College. I want the athletic department and the student athletes to provide success stories of which alumni can be proud of, building the athletics program into the front porch of the college,” said Kempf.
Donor development for the athletics program will be one of the major responsibilities for Kempf as Sterling's full-time athletic director. The addition of Kempf to the institution is a big step towards updating athletic facilities and increasing the College's competitiveness.
