June 10, 2011 - 12:31pm(creation)PublishedAnonymous Sterling College professors continue to pursue professional growth in ways that not only benefit them personally but also the students in their classrooms. Assistant Professor of Biology Jonathan Conard gave an invited presentation at a symposium held in conjunction with the Society for Range Management’s 62nd Annual Meeting, held in Albuquerque, N.M. His talk was titled “Elk Habitat Use in Northeastern Kansas: the Role of Military Training Areas as Refugia.” Dr. Craig Smith, chair of the Theology and Ministry department, completed an article titled “Romans 8:1: Is ‘who walk not after the flesh but after the spirit’ a Textual Addition or Original?” It will be published in Testamentum Imperium, an international theological journal. Dr. Smith also preached recently at Lyons Baptist Church. Dr. Johnson Agbo, Assistant Professor of Physics, developed curriculum for a Partial Differential Equations course open to select Sterling College students. Previously, in order for undergraduate students in this region to take such a course, they would have had to enroll at Kansas State. Because of Dr. Agbo’s expertise, however, students now have this option at Sterling College. Assistant Professor of Communications Ken Troyer, who is also coach of the Sterling College Debate and Forensics team, was recently elected to the District Committee for the American Forensics Association. The committee consists of five coaches nominated and selected by their peers, representing all schools in the region of Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Missouri, Louisiana, and Arkansas. Dr. Troy Peters, Sterling’s Vice President of Academic Affairs, comments, "As an institution Sterling College is strengthened by the accomplishments and pursuits of its faculty members. We congratulate them and thank them for their contributions to our growth."
