De Nooy

Leah De Nooy is a new admissions counselor at Dordt College, where she will be working with prospective students in Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Texas and some of the eastern states.

De Nooy graduated from Dordt in 2003, with a major in elementary education. During her senior year, she traveled to Nicaragua with AMOR (A Mission Out Reach) and fell in love with the country. On graduating, she accepted a third grade teaching position at the Nicaragua Christian Academy in Managua, where she taught for three years.

De Nooy said several Dordt alumni were also on the teaching staff at Managua, so she enjoyed the sense of community she had while being such a distance from family and friends. She added that she has a whole new appreciation of many things we often take for granted, like full grocery shelves, good roads and the American flag.

De Nooy is the daughter of Doug and Connie De Nooy, Parker, CO.
