It is with great joy that SFTS announces its newest faculty hire: Yolanda Norton will begin teaching this fall as Assistant Professor of Old Testament. Ordained in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Yolanda is an extraordinary young scholar who is currently finishing her PhD program in the Graduate Department of Religion at Vanderbilt University. She received her B.A. in Political Science from Syracuse University, and her M.Div. and M.T.S from Wesley Theological Seminary. She will arrive this summer to complete her draft dissertation (on the book of Ruth). Yolanda also brings with her an impressive amount of teaching experience. A Fellow in the prestigious Theology and Practice program at Vanderbilt, she comes to SFTS already having taught Old Testament at Vanderbilt, Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C. and Moravian Seminary in Bethlehem, PA.
