Stephen was born and raised in Southeast Tennessee. He earned a degree in Integrated Marketing Communication in 2017, and an MBA in Marketing in 2019 — both from Bryan College. Prior to stepping into his new role, Stephen served as the Resident Director for Long Residence Hall and the Assistant Coach for the Men’s Soccer team.
Outside of the office, you can find Stephen and his wife, Amy, spending time in the great outdoors. It’s not rare to see them out on the lake fishing, hiking in the region’s mountains, or on vacation in search of a new ski resort. Stephen & Amy also love playing games. Fierce competition has become the norm in the Ricketts household.
Stephen is passionate about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and making His name known globally, locally, and here on Bryan College’s campus. He loves serving others in practical ways and loves interacting with and developing students.
