Amy Thompson graduated from Sterling in 1996. Armed with her degree in communication and theatre arts, she headed to Nashville, Tenn., where she did her internship and then found employment in the country music industry. However, she could not pass up the opportunity to return to her beloved SC when she was offered the position of director of alumni and parent services in 1998. After serving in that role, and briefly that of admissions counselor for five years, Amy decided to quit talking about graduate school and moved to St. Paul, Minn., where she obtained an M.A. in communication from Bethel University.
Having completed her thesis on cross-cultural communication, Amy found herself uniquely prepared for work overseas as a constituency bridger with the Christian Reformed World Relief Committee (CRWRC). After two years living in Africa, working with North Americans coming and going and with nationals, building their capacity for volunteer management, Amy returned to the States. She spent one-and-a-half years working with international students at Lamar Community College in southeast Colorado before being completely surprised by her return to her old position (but new office) at Sterling.
“This wasn’t my plan. I know that God can use me anywhere and I am trying to completely surrender to Him so that He can do just that with me here and now. I love Sterling College and all that this place stands for in Christ. “
Amy’s favorite color is green and she is known to break out in spontaneous song. She is a travel, documentary, hot tea and scrapbooking fool. Amy loves nothing more than to catch up with friends, old and new alike. So if you are on campus and looking for a fun (not necessarily quiet, Amy is not known for her quietness) respite, a chance to look at photos, share stories and sign the guestbook - stop by her office at the top of the stairs, third floor Cooper Hall and she’ll put the kettle on for a steaming cup of hot tea just for you. (Perhaps you could all break into singing the Alma Mater together, teach these young whipper-snappers how it’s really done.)
