2019-20 Student Ambassadors
Hey! My name is Tiffany Adams and I am from Greeley, Colorado. I am a Junior majoring in Art concentration in Graphic Design and Illustration along with a Theatre minor. When I first visited Sterling, I knew it was the college for me. I wanted a Christian college with a strong art department and that is what I found when I visited Sterling for the first time. Sterling has so many different opportunities for one to be creative, which I love. I also love the atmosphere at Sterling and how you can become friends and connect with so many people.
Hi! My name is Saige, I’m from Westmoreland KS and I’m a Senior at Sterling College! I’m majoring in photography and graphic design with a minor in business marketing. I plan to start my own photography business focusing on sports photography. I came to Sterling because of the community here. Everyone here is so nice and if you need help with anything they will help you. At Sterling there are so many ways to be involved. While at Sterling I have been an ambassador, a member of the Campus Activities Board, and on O-Staff. Right now on campus I’m the office manager for the Student Government Association as well as an ambassador!
Hi! My name is Dakota Boehler and I am a Junior this year. I am majoring in Health Sciences with the hope to soon become an Occupational Therapist or wherever God leads me in the field of Health Science. I am from Laurel, Montana which is about 15 hours from Sterling! Sterling is an amazing place for college. I was on the women's basketball team for my first two years of school, which helped me develop so many amazing relationships I will have for the rest of my life! My sophomore year becoming an ambassador and being a part of orientation staff as gave me many more amazing relationships outside of the athletic world I have buried myself in for so long! I look forward to filling an ambassador position this year, while continuing my education and seeing what my life can outside of athletics!
Hello! My name is Patty Davila, I am a senior at Sterling. I’m majoring in Psychology and minoring in Art and Design. When I first heard about Sterling College I placed it in the back of my mind behind other colleges. Then I had the opportunity to attend a preview weekend. I fell in love with Sterling the first time I visited. I was very drawn to all the amenities Sterling has to offer even though it’s a small college. I found the community atmosphere very heart warming. I knew this would be the perfect place to grow not only educationally but spiritually as well. I’m am excited to be graduating in May but I’m also very upset because it means I’ll have to leave this wonderful place!
Hi, my name is Max Dutton! I’ve lived in Sterling my entire life and I’m a recent grad of Sterling High School! I chose SC because of all of the amazing things I can be a part of. I am heavily involved in Choir and Highland Singers, and I run Cross Country and Track. Sterling is a great town to live in because you will always have an amazing support staff around you! The campus feel is always extremely positive, and everyone is very friendly.
Hi everyone! My name is Will Dutton and I am proud to be an SC Warrior! I am an elementary education major here. I came here first because of the opportunity to perform in two musicals a year potentially. As I’ve been here though I’ve realized how wonderful and dedicated the people on this campus are to student’s betterment and a sincere warmth that really lights up campus in big ways. I hope I can share with you my love for this place if I get the chance to give you a tour. God Bless! #swordsup
My name is Kimberly, I’m a sophomore here at Sterling College! I first heard of Sterling at the 2017 Kansas Thespian Festival. I was a junior in high school and was convinced to do a Junior Day visit. I fell in love with the campus and everyone’s friendliness immediately! By the time high school graduation rolled around I knew I was going to do one of two things; take a gap year or attend Sterling College; and I chose the ladder. I say this with all honesty, it was the best decision of my life. I have grown so much as a music and theatre performer in only a year! The friendships I’ve built are those that you can just feel in your gut will last for centuries. I’m really excited to enhance my performing abilities and to take on new challenges that come my way!
My name is Timothy Ferri and I am a sophomore at Sterling College majoring in Math Education. I am from Fort Worth, TX and I have two siblings who are younger than me. I love to swim and sing with a passion because those are two things I did as a kid growing up. I heard about Sterling very last minute but I am so glad I came here. Unlike other colleges, the community here at Sterling is amazing and it was something that was a huge factor in me coming here. Sterling also showed me what it was to truly be a Christian in the aspect of servant leadership, love, and hospitality. I wasn't much of a fan when I looked online and saw how big the college was until I got here and then the kindness shown by the faculty and community here was unbelievable. I'm so excited to be a part of the choir this year and work on my vocals, and I can't wait to create more bonds with people here!
My name is Arnell Micheal Henry. I am from Fountain, Colorado. As an athlete my goal was to pursue playing sports at the collegiate level. One of our amazing Sterling Football coaches arrived at my high school and offered me a chance to come and take a visit at Sterling and I fell in love. It was everything I was looking for from the close and personal learning environment to the values that the school offered since it is a Christian college. Just some other information about me are that I am obviously a football player who enjoys working out. I also enjoy making and playing music for other people as well. This next year however is going to be unique since it is going to be my second year in college and my first year officially playing football at the collegiate level after a great year of training and growing. I also am excited to be joining the Sterling College Ambassador team as well being able to lend a helping hand around the school and just cannot wait to see what this new school holds. Living in Sterling is always an adventure because I never know what is going to happen with weather or even just all of the things that go on in town. This is a magical place anyways because the people are some of the nicest that you will ever meet, as well as the great times that happen on campus from our sporting events to our performances that go on as well. Can’t wait to jump into the school year and face what this year holds for me!
Hi, my name is Brennah. I was born and raised in Colorado, but live in Rio Rancho, NM now. I am a sophomore here at Sterling College. I am majoring in biology. My plan with this degree is to become an orthodontist and eventually open my own practice. I am a part of the softball team here at Sterling. I came to Sterling because I love the environment and the town overall. Sterling is a home away from home, and all the people are so nice and willing to help if needed. Some interests I have are helping people, and I love meeting new people. I am looking forward to being an ambassador this year and getting to meet lots of new people!
I'm Kendra Klaassen and I am a Sophomore from Hutchinson KS. Choosing to come to Sterling College was not a hard decision. Both of my Grandparents and my Great Grandma attended Sterling College. Which meant I had heard stories about Sterling my whole life. The other reason why I had chosen to come to Sterling was the fact that Sterling was different than other colleges that I had visited. One of the things that really stuck out to me was that Sterling would let me participate in multiple things instead of just one. Here at Sterling I am in the choir and help with theatre productions. I also teach little kids dance at a studio in Hutchinson. Something that I am looking forward to this year is getting to know new students and, get to experience more.
My name is Emma Kwasiborski, I'm a homeschool graduate and the oldest of six children. I'm sure you have a few questions after this sentence! To answer a few: Yes, I have an actual high school diploma, I didn't go to prom, and I'm VERY social! I chose to come to Sterling during my senior year after lots of prayer and I have been so blessed by my experience here. I'm a Theater Performance Major here at Sterling College and a part of the Highland Singers group. I was a part of a theater company back home (Greenleaf Performing Arts Academy) and it's been such a wonderful learning experience to be in the theater department here! When I'm not busy with shows, classes, or choir, I love trying new coffee shops and hanging out with my friends here at Sterling.
I'm a little non-traditional and I'm in between my sophomore, junior, and senior year, but after I graduate, I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to do! I'm confident that God has a good, perfect, and difficult path for me but I'm excited to embark on my journey to serve Christ through my adult years. To quote David Bowie, "I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise I won't be boring!"
My name is Joannah Maxwell, but I usually go by Jojo. I am from Corona, California. I first heard of Sterling when my older sister, Jessica, decided to come here for Volleyball. She really loved her experience here and always encouraged me to come too. My senior year of High School the college sent some recruiters to my Theatre and Choir class and they talked to me about the many opportunities to be found at Sterling. At Sterling, I am heavily involved in the Theatre and Music departmental. I have also been given the opportunity to be a part of the Ministry Teams here as well. I have been very grateful to the many opportunities I have been given in my time here at Sterling. I am most excited to meet the new faces in Sterling this year and cannot wait to see what this year holds.
I'm a history major with a minor in theatre directing from the great country of Texas! I'm hoping to be a museum director so being an ambassador will always be my job!

Hi, I'm Jenna and I'm currently a sophomore at Sterling. I heard about Sterling from my dad, who professors here as well as some friends who attended. I took a gap year after graduating from high school to explore the world's opportunities and decide what I want to do with my life. After a year and semester of learning, exploration, and prayer I decided Sterling was the best place to help my future goals. I'm a double-major in Christian Thought and Writing & Editing with the hopes of being a full-time writer for ministry. I love Sterling because they are committed to excellence, the atmosphere is so welcoming, and the professors are genuinely invested in helping me reach my education goals. When I'm not working on schoolwork, I serve as the Ministry Coordinator for Child Evangelism Fellowship of Kansas. I also enjoy running, watching Netflix or Hulu, and exploring the world through my Polaroid.

Sterling is a great town. I love the community support and involvement in the college and in turn the college's involvement in the community. Sterling College is also a great place to grow in your spiritual walk with Christ and make life-long friends along the way.
