EC Support and IT Specialist Leo Satara is a problem solver. When he was a child he would tear apart his television set only to try and put it back together, and had a passion for fixing things. Here at Emmanuel, he does just that making him this week’s Faculty & Staff Spotlight.
Originally from Former Yugoslavia, Satara dreamed of playing basketball in the United States. As a teenager in the 90’s his country broke out in a Civil War and all teenage boys were required to serve in the military for one year once they turned 18, something Satara was not eager to do.

This past summer while other college freshmen attended Orientation and prepared their fall semester schedules, EC freshman Alex Sobers was competing on the world’s biggest stage…the Olympic Games.
A competitive swimmer out of Bridgetown, Barbados, Sobers represented his home country swimming in the men’s 400-meter freestyle during the Rio games (August 5-21), making him the first student athlete from Emmanuel College to compete in the Olympics.
“I started swimming when I was four,” Sobers says, “but I didn’t start swimming competitively until I was eight years old.”
The Women's Ministries of the International Pentecostal Holiness Church (IPHC) brought a very generous offering of more than $61,000 to Emmanuel College's 69th Annual Feast of Ingathering on October 7, 2016.
EC President Dr. Ron White is grateful to the Women’s Ministry of the IPHC for their continued support.

Donna Quick could not help but smile while driving on Highway 17, making her way to Emmanuel College to formally accept the position of Vice President of Enrollment. But this was not the first time Ms. Quick has made the drive to Emmanuel.
“I have had a long history with Emmanuel College,” Quick said. “It was kind of a legacy situation where a lot of my family members had attended, so I have always known about Emmanuel. I never really strongly considered any other colleges as a student, so following both parents’ footsteps and an older brother and sister, I ended up at Emmanuel.”
