Year in Review
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.Read more
Do you know a future Kingsian?
Do you know any high school students who love ideas and want to live out their faith in New York City? We invite you to refer them to The King’s College through the link below. Over a third of our students hear about King’s through word of mouth. Your referral might change a student’s life forever!
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.
New Student Orientation Held Virtually
The King’s College kicked off the new school year with a virtual New Student Orientation. Once on campus, students participated in a two week state-mandated quarantine. King’s provided a “Build Your Own Quarantine Schedule” of virtual programming, giving students the opportunity to stay connected to the community during a time of physical separation. Daily quarantine activities included House events, Bible studies, trivia sessions, and more.
Panel on “Why the Liberal Arts?”
Dr. Joshua Kinlaw, assistant professor of history and humanities, hosted a panel discussion on “Why the Liberal Arts?,” featuring Dr. Zena Hitz of St. John’s College, Dr. Joseph Loconte of The King’s College and Heritage Foundation, and Dr. Jessica Hooten Wilson of the University of Dallas. President Gibson introduced the event by stating, “If you want to future-proof your education, a deep grounding in the liberal arts is the way to do so.” The panelists shared reasons for why the liberal arts are necessary, including that they help to preserve ordered freedom, attune society to beauty, and give people the ability to discern the kind of life they should ultimately pursue.
Virtual Homecoming 2020
King’s alumni gathered virtually for Homecoming to celebrate the college and connect with each other. Homecoming included alumni spotlights, reunions, a keynote address by Dr. David Tubbs, and more. Dr. Tubbs spoke on the launch of the Center for the Study of Christianity and the Black Experience, as well as on the new statement of academic freedom. He connected the goal of the Christian liberal arts to the need for the new Center, saying, “The Christian liberal arts tradition is alive and well at King’s… but the vitality of the liberal arts at King’s should not allow us to be complacent. For many reasons we need to give more attention to the lived experience of African-Americans in the United States.”
King’s Professors Discuss Civility
A panel of King’s professors shared their thoughts on civility at an event entitled, “A Loyal Opposition: Civility during Election Season.” The event, moderated by Dr. David Tubbs, featured remarks from Dr. Anthony Bradley, Prof. Alissa Wilkinson, and Dr. Dru Johnson. They shared thoughts on subjects like the role of friendship in preparing us to engage in political life, the nonviolent resistance of the Civil Rights movement, and the importance of humility and a desire to seek the other person’s good in any disagreement.
Political Violence in American History
After the events at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th, Dr. Jacqueline C. Rivers, senior fellow of the Center for the Study of Christianity and the Black Experience, hosted a virtual event on political violence in American history, featuring presentations from Dr. David Tubbs, Dr. Matthew Parks, Dr. Anthony Bradley, and Dr. Joseph Loconte. The event sought to offer historical and scriptural insights about current political violence in order to better understand and respond to the current moment.
Black History Month Address
Dr. Lucas Morel, head of the politics department at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Va., spoke at a virtual lecture which highlighted the life of famous abolitionist Frederick Douglass. Dr. Morel emphasized that once Black Americans were freed from slavery they continued to face the struggles of inequality, and were not able to vote, get an education, or receive equal protection under the law. Dr. Morel shared how Frederick Douglass became one of the greatest Americans who ever lived, spending his life pursuing freedom and justice for Black Americans everywhere.
MCA Musical: Crashing into Silence
“Crashing Into Silence” was a virtual production of scenes and songs written by King’s students about their pandemic experiences. The cast and crew was made up of thirteen students, and was led by student producer Mattie Winburn (Humanities ’23) and stage manager Kaitlyn Walker (MCA ’21). Misti Wills, a long-time collaborator with The King’s College, provided professional direction, and Emmy winner April Bartlett served as a production design consultant.
Dr. White’s Book Launch
The King’s College hosted a book launch for Dr. Benjamin White’s The New Testament in Comparison: Validity, Method, and Purpose in Comparing Traditions. The book contains a selection of essays from New Testament scholars, edited and introduced by White, assistant professor of biblical studies at King’s, and Dr. John M.G. Barclay. At the event, White shared why the comparison between New Testament texts and other ancient sources lie at the heart of academic study of the Bible. Dr. White shared that the purpose of comparison is “to give us a new and sometimes improved vision of ourselves. The irony of life is that by looking at others we can become more familiar with ourselves.”
The 2020 Alumni Awards were hosted virtually by Chris Ross (PPE ’10), the vice president of the alumni association executive committee. Chief Development Officer Bridget Rogers shared about alumni relations before the alumni committee presented the three alumni awards for the year: 2020 Alumnus of the Year was awarded to Daniel Egeler (’80), the 2020 Charles W. Anderson Award went to Thomas Sparling (’78), and the 2020 J. Stanley Oakes Award was presented to Diana Bellini (’06).
The Center for the Study of Christianity and the Black Experience celebrated their first official event with an interview with Dr. Jacqueline C. Rivers, senior fellow of the Center. Rivers was interviewed by Dr. David Tubbs, director of CSCBE, and Dr. Dami Kabiawu, associate director of CSCBE, and shared about her experiences working for justice in the Black community, which ultimately motivated her to go back to school to explore the intellectual aspects of racial and economic injustice and earn her Ph.D. She was drawn to work with the CSCBE at King’s because there was “really genuine interest in addressing these issues around Christianity and the Black church. …The idea of being in a place where one could seek intellectual rigor and at the same time embrace Christian faith was very attractive.”
The King’s College hosted its 73rd Annual Commencement Exercises at St. George’s Episcopal Church in New York City to honor the 116 graduates in the Class of 2021. The program on Friday, May 7, was a combined Commencement and Award Ceremony featuring addresses by President Tim Gibson, keynote speaker Bob Doll, valedictorian Esther Lawrence (English ’21), and senior speaker Joseph Fritz Scibbe (Humanities ’21), along with the presentation of annual graduate, staff, and faculty awards. On Saturday, May 8, graduates received their diplomas at five separate Graduation Ceremonies throughout the day, one of which was especially designated for 2020 graduates who wished to walk in-person, since the 2020 Commencement was held virtually.
Commencement weekend concluded with an all-graduates picnic on Governors Island, hosted by The King’s Council. The picnic was held for the faculty, staff, friends, and family in honor of both 2020 and 2021 graduates.
Summer Academy 2021
Throughout July, 37 high school students participated in Summer Academy online. Students had the opportunity to take different weeklong tracks on topics like investing, filmmaking, journalism, entrepreneurship, and the American legal system. They met on Zoom in real time for lectures, discussions, and activities hosted by faculty of The King’s College. Raychel Yost, a rising high school senior from Oklahoma, said, “I wanted to be a part of Summer Academy to get an idea of how King’s operates. What I learned is that it is a rich community that challenges its students, utilizes discussion, and wants students to succeed.”

At home, he is preparing both to compete in his first triathlon and to welcome his first child early next year. “In both my professional and personal life, the two themes that tie everything together are serving others and fighting entropy. Whether through increasing educational opportunities by mentoring high school students, serving through my church, or setting aside the time to be a present husband and father, my mission is to follow Christ in His mission to transform lives and renew all things.”
Heather Cate (MCA ’15)
Office Manager and Executive Assistant at Proven Ministries
Heather helps Proven Ministries to partner with churches, families, and individuals in order to help people find freedom from sexual addiction through spiritual disciplines and intimacy with Jesus. Towards that aim, Heather works with a team of five people to shape the future of the organization and to ensure the ministry runs smoothly. Heather said, “I wouldn’t have my job if I hadn’t taken Human Sexuality with Dr. Talcott. In that class, I became passionate about sexual ethics. And because I now work in the non-profit sector addressing the hyper-sexualization of our culture, I see direct correlation and fruit.”
Jeremy Cerone (PPE ’13)
External Relations Senior Advisor at AJB Home Rentals | Advanced English Presentations Coach to Foreign Clients
Jeremy counsels AJB Home Rentals on strategy, engagement, and advocacy at the federal, state, and city levels. He also coaches legal professionals to help them improve their job performance with presentation skills.

Director of Global Expansion for PureCycle Technologies, a NASDAQ listed Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) recycling company
PureCycle Technologies converts waste polypropylene (plastic) back to ultra-pure, virgin-like polypropylene. Ryan oversees supply chain and site selection. “I see what we do as restoring nature to its intended state and ending decades of pollution that will do irreversible harm if left unchecked.” Regarding his King’s education, Ryan said. “It was a suite of experiences so rich, beautiful, certainly challenging, but so constructive that it follows me everywhere I go. Looking back, I see how the rigor, the novel experience, the relationships, and the dialogue on the great ideas gave me a framework to view the world.”
Grace (Croley) Ellenberg (MCA ’17)
Project Manager at Useful Group | Photographer at Ellenberg & Co. | Grad student at Auburn University studying Industrial-Organizational Psychology

And as the founder of Ellenberg & Co., she spends her weekends and evenings photographing weddings, couples, and families. After that, she spends her free time reading and writing for her grad program. Grace credits King’s for the foundational knowledge she needed for her various endeavors. “From my Western Civilization class with Loconte, to Marketing with Fotopulos, to Arts and Ideas with Bleattler—my classes gave me a deeper understanding of the world and greater thought into being a business owner. My time working at King’s cultivated my love of developing people which set me on the course to grad school.”
Alexandra Harrison Gaiser (PPE ’12)
Director of Regulatory Affairs at River Financial
Alexandra works at a Bitcoin brokerage and custody service as an in-house lawyer. While Bitcoin barely existed when she graduated, King’s still provided the broad perspective on the world that equipped Alexandra to understand Bitcoin and explain it to diverse audiences. “I do a lot of finding the right analogy to something old so people can properly understand something new—that’s definitely a skill King’s taught me.” When it comes to her King’s education, her study of economics fed into why she finds Bitcoin compelling. “Proverbs and the Pentateuch are full of verses about how God hates dishonest weights and measures. Bitcoin is fundamentally about having an honest weight and measure that can’t be corrupted or controlled.”
Joseph Holmes (PPE ’16)
Direct Support Professional at Life’sWORC | Film critic and culture writer for Religion Unplugged | Independent filmmaker
Joseph works at Life’sWORC and Family Center for Autism where he helps facilitate an independent living experience for people with intellectual disabilities and autism.

During his time off, Joseph serves as a host on a podcast he co-founded called The Overthinkers, or spends time writing his next film screenplay or culture piece. “King’s exposed me to resources and habits for engaging with the world of ideas and of people—and pushed me to excel in both. I use these in my life now, whether it’s navigating relationships at work or in my creative projects.”
Carly Kashmanian (PPE ’15)
Wife and Mother | Journalist
Carly is at home full-time with her two sons—and a third baby on the way. “Raising my children is a life-long dream realized, and though it’s the hardest job I’ve ever had, I’m grateful God saw me fit for the task.” Carly credits her time at King’s for solidifying the values with which she was raised, while also bolstering her courage to defend those principles in the media (i.e., TheBlaze, Faithwire, CatholicVote, Theology of Home, etc.) and within the four walls of her home. “I seek to teach my children ‘the art of living well’ so that no matter what direction their studies lead, they will be equipped to love and serve.”
Penelope Morgan (PPE ’10)
Director of Hephzibah House in New York
Penelope manages Hephzibah House—a hospitality ministry in a Victorian brownstone on the Upper West Side where she lives with her husband Andy and their three kids. With 15 rooms, Hephzibah House primarily provides guest housing for people in vocational ministry who are traveling to New York City. The House also serves as a community center for ministries to use for events, classes, and meetings. “For humans, as embodied beings, places are very powerful,” Penelope reflects. “For the Christian, the purpose of keeping a beautiful home is to honor others and remind them of their status as God’s precious ones. Our hospitality ministry is meant to give whoever passes through our doors a taste of God’s delight over them.” She says that her time at King’s “gave me a head start building a network of believers in the city and a sense for how God is working here.”
J.P. Pressley (MCA ’19)
Assistant Editor at Manifest | Writer, Freelance Filmmaker | MFA in Writing from Lindenwood University
J.P. spends his workdays with Manifest—a premier content marketing agency—focusing on content creation for a Fortune 200 client. This can entail either developing ideas to pitch or working with other departments to deliver what’s been approved. After hours, J.P. works with entertainment industry professionals on independent writing and film projects. “I’m not just a content creator—I’m a gatekeeper. Just as I pitch and cultivate content via angles that can calibrate what I believe to be the skewed moral compass of America, I am uniquely positioned to ensure ideas that do the opposite never see the light of day.”
Daiya Malone (Humanities ’20)
MA Art History Student at American University Studying 13th to 17th Century European Art
“My King’s education gave me the tools to view my life and the lives of other people through the lens of the human experience and all that it entails.” Daiya is building on those tools by continuing her academic studies at American University in Washington, D.C., where her graduate research in art history explores the representation of women in Christianity. She plans to explore gender roles within the church as well as women’s implicit and explicit sacrifices in leadership. “My research will be an attempt to work in the spirit of reconciliation and encourage others to celebrate God’s creations in all of their differences.”
Kyra Rooney (English ’19)
Production Assistant at Sotheby’s Art Auction House
During her time at King’s, Kyra explored modeling, fashion public relations, waitressing in Grand Central Station, as well as writing for National Review. Following the path that her growing interests led, she eventually landed a job at Sotheby’s. In her role as production assistant within the valuations department, Kyra creates appraisals for clients (i.e., fair market value, private sale, auction estimate, insurance, etc.) and comprehensive descriptions for clients’ art and valuable items. “My job allows me to be a tiny part of the preservation of history and culture. I feel connected to the past and excited for the trajectory of art.”
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.”
