WWC Welcomes New Administrator Ken Rogers Joins the Ranks

Ken Rogers finished his first year as vice president for student administration in June. He is from Collegedale, Tennessee, where he served for the past 16 years as chaplain for Southern Adventist University. As the campus chaplain, he enjoyed working with the student missions program and developing a taskforce assistant chaplain program. Rogers also created a youth ministry class that has since evolved into a youth ministry minor.

"I'm excited about the opportunity to take on the challenge of administration and the chance to bring a pastoral presence to a student administration role," he says.

Rogers also looks forward to making a difference in the lives of the students at Walla Walla College.

"Through role modeling and involvement in student life activities, I hope I can impact those around me with an attitude of respect and awe for our God, and a desire to serve our fellow man in love and service," he says.

With family roots in the Northwest, Rogers is happy to be in the region and be close to family. He has two adult sons, Brandon and Brock, both of whom live in Washington state. Rogers lost his third son to pneumonia complications at age 18. Rogers is set to be married in August, and his wife-to-be, Cheryl McGhee, from Atlanta, Georgia, will join him after the wedding.

Rogers replaces June Ferguson, who served as vice president for student administration for seven years.
