Sterling College hosted its annual Heritage Convocation on March 30 at 10 a.m. in Culbertson Auditorium. This convocation focused on the rich heritage the College has developed since being founded in 1887. Gordon Kling and Diane DeFranco-Kling, both senior associate professors of theatre arts, were recognized during the assembly for their years of service. The Klings have been involved in over 80 performances during their time at Sterling. This year’s Heritage Convocation tapped into a variety of memories centered on the theatre department.
“The Heritage Convocation is to show the students that they are a part of something bigger than their four years here,” said Amy Thompson, director of parent and alumni relations. “The institutional verse of the year is ‘One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts.’ (Psalm 145:4) We tried to fulfill that this year, specifically relating to the theatre department and the Klings.”
