Kettering Member Retires After 37 Years With Kettering Adventist HealthCare
Story by Mindy Claggett
Beneke joined the Kettering College faculty in 1986 and has been a significant contributor to campus life. In addition to his academic responsibilities, he has also assisted in overseeing multiple changes to the physical plant, an activity that he may continue on a part-time basis next year.
Before joining the college faculty, Beneke began his imaging career at Kettering Medical Center in 1974 after completing training and a degree in radiologic technology in southern California. He already had a bachelor’s degree in biology before serving for four years as a medical corpsman with the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. Last fall Beneke was named an honorary Kettering College alumnus for his outstanding service to the school, his longtime commitment to the college and his ability to reflect the mission of Kettering College.
“Larry’s contribution to the Kettering College community has gone far beyond his stellar leadership in his department,” said William Nelson, college dean for academic affairs. “He is a trusted friend and colleague, one who lives his values. His impact here will not soon be forgotten.”
Beneke’s late wife, Diane, also devoted 20 years to the college, and their three sons are alumni: Darin Christie (`96), Todd Christie (`02) and Aaron Beneke (’95).
