Carol Ajamian Retires

July 16, 2013

Westminster Theological Seminary honors Carol Ajamian who retired July 15, 2013 after 26 years of faithful service.

On July 15th, Westminster honored long-time employee Carol Ajamian with a staff luncheon and send-off.  Present were many friends and faculty members from Carol's time at Westminster.

Carol began her career at Westminster on July 13, 1987 working in the Registrar’s Office for three years before transitioning to her long time career role as Coordinator for the Doctor of Ministry and Mentored Ministry programs under the umbrella of Academic Affairs.  Carol has been a true servant and tremendous blessing to countless students throughout the years in addition to the faculty, staff, and campus community.  We will dearly miss Carol’s warm, sunny disposition, helpful spirit, heart for ministry, and her radiating love for the Lord!

“Carol has been such a gift, a remarkable gift - kind and helpful spirit, bold truth-teller, loyal friend, servant - to the seminary. I pray the Lord would bring more like her to serve our students.  As Al Groves would remind me constantly -- "Mike, it is all about the students..." — Mike Kelly

“Carol, you have been a real encouragement to us both over the years. Always cheerful, ready to help, charmingly funny, honest, and just a good friend. It was great to have your daughter in class. She is like you in many ways, a bright, wonderful lady, who, like you, has risen above adversity. We will miss you, but trust there will be occasions to visit.” — Bill and Barbara Edgar
