Travis Bandstra Accepts Alumni Director Position

It’s all about building relationships in a community that encompasses not only current students but alumni of Trinity Christian College.

The new director of alumni relations, Travis Bandstra ’06, plans to continue the focus of his predecessor Kelly Netjes ’02, who is stepping down as director on August 15.

“I will be continuing the great events that have been established and finding even more ways to bring alumni back to campus,” said Bandstra.

Bandstra, originally from Pella, Iowa, majored in political science and business at Trinity. He was involved in the Student Association for four years, the Law & Politics Society, the Honors Program, and Concert Choir.

His wife Lisa (Kerkstra) ’08 is a nurse at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois.

Netjes, who has worked in the Development office since her graduation in 2002 is leaving to start a family. She became director of alumni relations in 2006 and concentrated her efforts on maintaining a sense of community with students after their graduation.

Netjes is looking forward to returning to campus to attend events. “I plan to be a very active alumna.”
