October 10, 2018 – Rhonda Kettenring, administrative assistant to the vice president of academics, was recognized as the 2018 Bryan College Staff Member of the Summer. Kettenring was nominated based on her diligence, graciousness, and dedication to the Bryan College mission and purpose. Dr. Stephen Livesay bestowed the award.
Kettenring’s professional qualities were recognized during the presentation. Her organizational and administrative skills are excellent. Both her current and former supervisor identified her ability to work efficiently and effectively.
However, it was her other qualities that clearly set her apart. Dr. Kevin Clauson, former vice president of academics, highlighted Kettenring’s “sense of compassion that embodied both truth and grace.” Kettenring’s sweet spirit is obvious to anyone who crosses her path. She is always willing to serve others and does so with a beautiful smile.
“What I do want you know about Rhonda and what you will see from the first moment you meet her,” said Dr. Douglas Mann, vice president of academics, “is that she seeks to love everyone with the love of Christ… Her own gifts of mercy and grace point everyone she meets to Christ.” Her passionate love for God and dedication to others is evident.
Kettenring is an inspiration to campus and a shining example of glorifying Christ. She has been with Bryan College for seven years, including five years in her current role. Please join us in congratulating Mrs. Rhonda Kettenring.
