It's been a busier-than-usual fall at Sterling College, but that has not stopped its administration and faculty from writing, creating, and composing. Recently President Paul J. Maurer and Professors David Harmon and Dr. Brad Nix have experienced recognition for their work.
Using tuba, piano, trombone, voice and euphonium, Sterling College's music professors have spent their Christmas "vacation" bringing music to audiences near-Sterling, Hutchinson, McPherson, and Wichita-and far-Boulder, Colorado and Atlanta, Georgia.
Sterling College's new Executive Assistant to the President Amy Boyea has had to hit the ground running. Boyea began her job on November 30, one week before the College began its comprehensive evaluative visit from the Higher Learning Commission, the College's accrediting agency.
"It's been a fast learning curve," she said. Boyea comes to the College from Hospira, Inc., a global pharmaceutical and medication delivery company with an office in McPherson, where she served as an administrative assistant in the Human Resources Department.
