Year in Review


Tim Gibson
President's Introduction

Dear students, alumni, staff, faculty, and friends of the College:

Today’s hot button debates are intense. Those on various sides of an issue will talk past one another, making assumptions about the motives or character of their intellectual opponents. When someone brings assumptions about you into a conversation, it’s nearly impossible to be heard for what you’re actually saying. It begins to approach the account of the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11, where coordinated action is untenable because each person speaks a different language.

Athletics Highlights

Despite not being able to compete during the 2020-21 school year, King’s athletic teams continued to meet over Zoom. “I was impressed by the maturity and professionalism that our students showed in accepting the situation,” said athletic director Bryan Finley. The athletes continued to raise money for new practice gear and video equipment.

The Athletic Department hosted a luncheon for its athletes on Friday, April 16, to promote fellowship and celebrate the commitment they had shown to both their college and their teams. Motivational speaker Gian Paul Gonzalez addressed the students about commitment, perseverance, hard work and helping others, especially during the pandemic and in the name of Christ.

  • 20 of the 115 graduating students (17%) played sports during their four years at King’s.
  • 12 of the 20 would have competed during their senior year if not for the pandemic.
  • These 12 seniors posted a cumulative GPA of 3.37.

In Memoriam

Dr. Carl Gustafson

Dr. Carl Gustafson, a long-time chemistry professor at The King’s College, passed away on May 29, 2021 in Lancaster, Pa. He was 97 years old. Judith (Claassen) Reynolds (’68) reflects, “Dr. Gustafson holds a special place in my memories of my early student days at the Briarcliff campus of King’s. He gave me special help and enabled me to succeed in a subject that didn’t come easily for me.”

Lee Pelletier added, “Dr. Gustafson was a godly and engaging man, and well deserved the honor of being Professor Emeritus at TKC. I am so grateful for the godly professors like Dr. Gustafson who brought their relationship with Christ to their work, helping students to see science from a Christian perspective.”
