GSBC Bleacher Report has undergone an in depth study among college students regarding the “Unsung Heroes of GSBC.” These are the people that do not get near enough credit that they in all actuality, deserve! The unsung heroes will range from staff, church members, contractors and college students.
1. Bro. Nathan Allen
Bro. Allen is in charge of the online classes, the media of GSBC, the website of GSBC, the making of the yearbook, some construction work and the Annual Thanksgiving Dinner. He also assists with the church sound system on Sundays and Wednesdays. This is a man who clearly loves GSBC and deserves our #1 mention for “Unsung Hero.”
2. Bro. Kevin Padillo
If there is a guy who seems to ALWAYS be on the campus of GSBC, it is Bro. Padillo. Bro. Padillo is the guy who is second in command of the GSBC/NVBC/De la Cruz Property maintenance department. He arrives on campus at 7:45 every morning and doesn’t leave until sometimes well after 6PM. On Saturdays, he usually puts in a 10-12 hour day as well. He is the epitome of an unsung hero as we NEVER hear his name mentioned from pulpits.
3. Bro. Adam Russ
Bro. Russ assists with the sound system on Sundays and Wednesdays. However, Bro. Russ also helps with sound checks and mic checks on Saturdays when people practice in the auditorium. Bro. Russ helps during conferences in making sure the sound system is all set up and ready to go. Weddings, funerals—you name it, Bro. Russ is there!
4. DDR (David Daniels)
Now here’s a guy who is king in multiple facets. He is in charge of making sure the men’s dorms stay clean. That in it self is deserving of an award! DDR also helps in the kitchen and volunteers in different capacities. DDR is well known for his perfecting of the security department of GSBC several years ago when he was given the nickname, “DDR.”
5. Bed Bug Contractors
These guys are legends! Sometimes they are called in twice a week. However, they never get recognized for their brilliance in disposing of the nasty bed bugs that eat away at our souls.
6. Mrs. Riddle
Mrs. Riddle is very faithful in encouraging the college students with candy, brownies, banana nut bread, nachos and cards. She is never praised or recognized for being faithful in this specific area, but we as college students definitely have taken notice.
7. Deborah Bohman
Deborah is in charge of the GSBC Bookstore. If there is a job on the campus of GSBC that involves a lot of focus and concentration for such a short amount of time, it is the college bookstore counter clerk! For 7-9 minutes, it is rush rush rush. People coming in to buy books, scantrons, Monster energy drinks, refill their laundry card, buy GSBC apparel, socialize, loiter, etc. She is definitely worthy of being on our “unsung heroes” list.
8. Kaitlyn Wiggins
The “mail lady” automatically deserves a spot on the “unsung hero” list. We’re talking about a lady who puts up with the same people coming to the mail room, constantly nagging her for their package that STILL HAS NOT ARRIVED. She helps out students who go to work early and cannot get their packages during the set times. She definitely earns her stripes as the “mail lady.”
