With mountains, the Pacific Ocean and other outdoor recreational opportunities all around them, Tom and Rebecka Vessey knew they weren’t in Kansas anymore.
The pair moved to Salem from Sterling, Kansas with their six children in June. Tom Vessey joined the Corban faculty as an assistant professor of psychology. He previously taught at Northwest Nazarene University in Idaho, and in Minnesota at Crown College, Trinity Bible College in N.D. and Sterling College in Kansas. He has a master’s degree in historical theology, 200 graduate credit hours in psychology, and is working toward a doctorate degree.
Rebecka Vessey was hired to replace Chris Vetter, Ph.D., as Corban’s new registrar. She previously served as the assistant registrar at Sterling College and will work under Pam Teschner, Ph.D., Corban’s new associate provost for academics.
Rebecka Vessey likes the abundance of hiking opportunities and said she is looking forward to exploring the state’s parks with her family. Along with outdoor activities, the family enjoys playing soccer and taking to the stage in community theatre productions.
