Agnes Saddington ha09 was a part-time employee on the Fort Wayne campus from 1983 to 2009. While her husband Jim taught in the classroom, Agnes worked several years each in the President’s Office, Development, and the Athletic Office.
As Athletic Secretary from 1989 to 2009, Agnes went beyond her duties by serving as a friend and listening ear to the female athletes in the department. She also compiled a complete record of all athletic statistics during these years, which remains a valuable resource to Fort Wayne alumni.
Both Agnes and her husband Jim were actively involved in students’ lives. They hosted monthly wing parties in their home for the male students of Schultz Hall, regularly attended athletic events, and lived near campus to intentionally foster relationships with students.
Agnes also participated in Small Group Chapels, was a member of the Faculty/Staff Wives group, and was part of Friends of FWBC.
Prior to moving to Fort Wayne, Agnes attended Philadelphia College of the Bible. There she met her husband, Jim, during undergraduate studies, and they married in 1967. Together they had three children, whom Agnes raised as a full-time mom.
