Four New Faces Grace Dordt Classrooms

Cory Van Gilst- Staff Writer

As certain professors leave Dordt’s campus for opportunity elsewhere, the college greets four new faces to its academic arsenal: Dr. Tom Prinsen, Dr. David Henreckson, Nathan Miller and Terrance Attema.

For two of these individuals, arriving on Dordt’s campus resembles a return home. Both Nathan Miller and Dr. Prinsen are Sioux Center natives and Dordt College alum. Nathan Miller, an engineering professor and ’07 graduate, noted he is teaching alongside professors whom he learned from while attending Dordt. Dr. Prinsen, a Communications professor, moved back to the area to be closer to family.

For Dr. Henreckson, the new Andreas Center Director and assistant director of theology, and Terrance Attema, professor for mathematics and statistics, Dordt College is a new experience. Attema especially faced many new experiences near the beginning of the year, from getting married in June and to moving from British Columbia to Sioux Center in a few short months.

Attema appreciates the unique faith and culture of Dordt College, as all professors are highly appreciative of the students’ commitment to academics. When these four individuals were asked what drew them to Dordt, all responded that it was their desire to pour knowledge into students via Dordt’s Reformed perspective that drew them to the campus. Each new face is eager to work at Dordt College and excited to start building relationships with students, not only this semester and but also well into their time at Dordt College.
