BETHANY, W.Va. – Bethany College has been named as one of the country’s “Most Athletic Hidden Gems” among small colleges by College Raptor, a leading college-planning platform that helps families discover colleges based on academic and cultural fit.

With athletic involvement from 57.21 percent of the student body, Bethany, an NCAA Division III school, was ranked fifth in the nation by College Raptor. The ranking’s criteria limited the selection to schools that receive fewer than 5,000 applications a year and have fewer than 7,000 undergraduate students enrolled.

“Finding hidden gems for students is core to how we help students and families discover great college choices. That’s why we love putting out our Hidden Gems lists each year to highlight excellent schools like Bethany,” said Bill Staib, CEO of College Raptor.

Part of the Presidents’ Athletic Conference and Eastern College Athletic Conference, Bethany offers 22 intercollegiate athletic teams, along with intramurals and club sports.

“It’s an honor to be recognized as one of the Most Athletic Hidden Gems,” said Steve Thompson, Director of Athletics for Bethany College. “From the moment you step onto our campus, you know Bethany is a special place. We couldn’t be prouder of the Bethany student-athlete experience.”

Actors to Perform Staged Reading of Stories from Arkansas Death Row Inmates

BETHANY, W.Va. – Bethany College and Wheeling Jesuit University will host productions of On the Row, a staged reading of stories from Arkansas death row inmates, on Aug. 29 and 30.

The performance at Bethany College is scheduled for Aug. 29 at 7:30 p.m. in Wailes Theatre, located in Steinman Hall, and the performance at Wheeling Jesuit University is scheduled for Aug. 30 at 7:30 p.m. in Troy Theatre, located in Swint Hall.

The shows, featuring Bethany College alumni and students, are free and open to the public, with a $10 donation encouraged.

The Prison Story Project is a storytelling, creative writing project that benefits incarcerated women and men. Its goal is to enable those whose voices have been locked away to tell their stories, allowing communities to witness the humanity of the incarcerated through their own words.

From May through October of 2016, The Prison Story Project was granted unprecedented access to the men on Arkansas’ Death Row at Varner Prison. There were thirty-four men on the row at the time and eleven of those men chose to participate in the project. The inmates met with the volunteer team once a month to explore writing and storytelling concepts.

A staged reading of their work was developed and performed for the men on death row on October 8, 2016 and later that month for the public in Northwest Arkansas, where The Prison Story Project is headquartered.

The cast will include actor Ron Scott, of Wheeling, W.Va., ’74 Bethany College graduates David Jolliffe, of Fayetteville, Ark., and Gary Kappel, of Bethany, W.Va., and Bethany College students Kerry Kerr, of Lawrenceville, Ga., Mike Lyons, of Beaver, Pa., and Issac Flowers, of Levittown, Pa. David Jolliffe is Professor Emeritus, Brown Chair in English Literacy at the University of Arkansas, and Dr. Gary Kappel is Perry E. and Aleece C. Gresham Chair in Humanities at Bethany College.

BETHANY, W.Va. – Bethany College President Dr. Tamara Nichols Rodenberg has announced that Stephen P. Thompson has been appointed the Director of Athletics at Bethany College.

He will begin in his new role at Bethany on July 1, 2018.

Previously, Thompson was the athletic director at Eureka College in Illinois, where he recently completed a $3 million dollar fundraising campaign to renovate the school’s historic Reagan Gymnasium and McKinzie Football Field.

During his tenure at Eureka, Thompson administered a competitive athletic program in the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Eureka’s women’s basketball team, which Thompson coached, took both the conference regular season and tournament championships in 2017 to advance to their first-ever NCAA Tournament. In recognition for his achievements that year, Thompson was named the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association College Coach of the Year, the SLIAC Coach of the Year, as well as the Hero Sports National Coach of the Year.

Additionally, the Eureka Red Devils football program won eight games to clinch its first conference title since 1995 and go to the NCAA playoffs for the first time in school history.

Prior to his appointment as Eureka’s Athletic Director, Thompson served as the Assistant Athletic Director for Facilities and Operations at Case Western Reserve University and later at Kent State University.

He has extensive experience in both athletic facilities development and fundraising.

“We’re delighted to welcome Steve Thompson to our leadership team,” said Dr. Rodenberg. “He brings a unique blend of talents and experience that we sought nationwide and which will address our specific needs as we grow our athletic department and facilities.”

“I would like to thank President Rodenberg, those involved in the search, and the Board of Trustees for this opportunity,” said Thompson. “The visionary leadership from Dr. Rodenberg and the passion for Bethany from those involved in the search really made this position attractive. I am excited to join the dynamic team at Bethany.”

BETHANY, W.Va. –Taylor Elaine Sasak, of Berea, Ohio, is the recipient of the Oreon E. Scott Award as the 2018 valedictorian at Bethany College.

The award was announced by Dr. Joe Lane, Provost and Dean of the Faculty, at Bethany’s 2018 Commencement Exercises on Saturday, May 19.

Ms. Sasak is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Todd Sasak, and is a 2014 graduate of Berea-Midpark High School.

“I have been consistently impressed with Taylor’s professionalism and leadership,” said Dr. Lane.

An Interdisciplinary Studies major with a focus on environmental science, Sasak was consistently on the President’s and Dean’s lists, passed her comprehensive examination with distinction, and graduated summa cum laude.

She held membership with Gamma Sigma Kappa Scholastic Society, Gamma Sigma Epsilon Chemistry Honor Society, and Beta Beta Beta Biological Honor Society, and won numerous awards, including the Freshman Chemistry Award, Richard B. Kenney Freshman Leadership Award, Women’s Leadership Award, and Beta Beta Beta Prize.

She served on the search committee for a biology faculty position, as well as the search committee for a women’s soccer head coaching position.

“After working a gap year, she hopes to pursue a graduate degree in environmental science, and we can only hope that in a few years, another Bethany Biology Search Committee may find her.”

Former NFL Star Speaks of Overcoming Odds, Receives Honorary Doctorate

BETHANY, W.Va. – Charlie Batch, an NFL star quarterback who played for both the Detroit Lions and Pittsburgh Steelers before becoming a nationally-recognized advocate for urban communities, delivered the commencement address at Bethany College’s 178th Commencement Ceremony on May 19.

In a career that has spanned 20 years, Batch has been a professional athlete, a television analyst, an entrepreneur, an advocate for disadvantaged communities, philanthropist, and a champion of numerous issues affecting children and health.

“Expect greatness in your life,” said Batch, who reflected on the lessons he learned growing up in Pittsburgh’s Mon Valley and his NFL playing career before a capacity crowd at Bethany’s Hummel Field House.

“If you don’t expect to win in life, I guarantee you never will. So expect greatness from yourself and everyone around you.

“Dream big,” he continued. “Remember that dreams are nothing more than plans awaiting action, and sometimes you may be the only one who can see your vision. I’m sure at some point you were told that you weren’t good enough…smart enough…talented enough. You can either buy into that lie, or you can challenge that lie, and say ‘no, I refuse to believe that.’”

Bethany College president, Rev. Dr. Tamara Nichols Rodenberg, challenged the graduates to heed the lessons of Batch’s experience in their lives.

“Today you are standing at the precipice of a new challenge,” said Rodenberg. “If you want to bring fundamental change in the world, you must change belief, behavior, and create a community where that belief can be practiced, and expressed, and nurtured. Today, your passport is stamped and you are ready to embark on a life of purpose.

“The world is in desperate need of leaders. This is your time.”

In recognition of his multi-faceted career and achievements in public service, Bethany College bestowed on Batch an honorary Doctor of Philanthropy degree.
