New VP for Student Administration appointed
Ken Rogers accepts position at WWC
Ken Rogers has been appointed vice president for student administration at Walla Walla College. Rogers, who is currently campus chaplain at Southern Adventist University, will begin his new duties this fall.
“I am excited to return home to the Pacific Northwest and join the distinguished Walla Walla College educational team,” Rogers says. “Walla Walla College consistently demonstrates academic, professional and spiritual excellence, and the privilege to be a part of this institution will be rewarding.”
Rogers graduated from Auburn Adventist Academy in 1973 before receiving a degree in theology from Southern Adventist University, and a master’s degree in religion from La Sierra University. He has served as a youth pastor in three conferences and has actively directed youth and young adult ministries in local churches, and high school and university settings. He specializes in mentoring leaders, strategic team building, mission outreach programs, innovative worship, and student-led outreach programs. Rogers has been chaplain at SAU for 16 years.
“I have traced Ken Rogers's ministry for many years and have admired his maturity, skill, energy, and creativity,” says president-elect John McVay. “And I should add his superb sense of humor to that list as well! It will be a delight to have him join the WWC family and lead out of his rich experience in discipling and mentoring students.”
Rogers replaces June Ferguson, who has served as vice president for student administration since 2001.
