Grace College professor retires after 55 years of teaching
After over five decades of teaching at Grace College in Winona Lake, a professor has decided to retire.
On Thursday, colleagues and former students of Dr. Paulette Sauders are sharing their stories about what makes her such a special part of the college. She’s a friend to many at Grace College and someone who’s made a lasting impact on students for 55 years.
“I know I could always go to her, whether it was school related or not,” former student Kylie Higgins says.
“Anytime there’s a job that needs to be done, she steps up and does it,” Dr. Lauren Rich adds. She is the chair for the Department of Humanities at Grace College.
“Thanks for being a friend to so many of us, you are an inspiration,” Mark Marstonnorris, Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, says.
Dr. Sauders has bloomed into a living legend during her time in higher education.
“Really you don’t find anybody staying at a place for their entire career anymore,” Dr. Bill Katip says. He is the president of Grace College and Seminary.
