Steve and Kris Kester have a special heart and love for GAC secondary mathematics and the good work of our math faculty. They are a long-time GAC family with three children who have attended GAC: Lauren, Brett, and Sarah. Steve and Kris have been active volunteers in the swim, track, and cross country communities here on campus.
The Kesters' aspiration is to strengthen and sustain GAC mathematics for the future with a sizable endowed gift. The returns on this investment will support GAC mathematics year after year. Because of their support, the school has renamed Spartan Hall as Kester Hall. In addition to providing the tools and resources for top-notch mathematics instruction, we made physical improvements to Kester Hall this past summer.
Steve said of his gift, "We are delighted to support quality, Christ-centered education, and we encourage others to endow their passions. My personal love for math came from a high school teacher, so I know the impact a teacher can have on a student."
