Sarah Ostapko serves prospective students from Missouri. The Milwaukee, Wisconsin native earned her bachelor’s degree from Evangel in Human Services in 2012.
Sarah says her Evangel journey began when former admissions counselor and current student activities director Christy Rowden visited her high school. “When Christy saw me working here she teared up. It was so awesome to see how her efforts had led to me coming here as a student and all that has resulted.”
As an Evangel student, Sarah was active in campus worship and loved her time living in Lewis Hall. She was drawn to Evangel because of the distinct atmosphere she experienced while visiting campus as a high school sophomore and junior.
“I absolutely loved the aspect of coming to school pretty far from home and immediately plugging in somewhere I could grow spiritually,” Sarah says. “Not just on campus, but the community and local church. It was a wonderful experience.”
Sarah met her husband Peter at Evangel, and the couple lives in the Springfield area with their shih tzu Charlie.
“I want students out there to know that they will be invested in at Evangel. It’s a place where your face and name will be recognized and people will care where you are headed.”
