Pillar College Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month – Vivian Ramirez

As so many others, my parents left their homeland of Puerto Rico and arrived in New York in the 1950’s in hopes of providing a better future for our family.  I came to know Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior at 12 years of age and have been blessed to serve Him in various ministries including as a pastor’s wife.  My husband, Rev. Hector Ramirez, and I recently celebrated our 43rd wedding anniversary.  
I completed my undergraduate degree in Organizational Leadership at Nyack College and began working at Pillar College (then Somerset Christian College) in 2011.  I am passionate about Pillar College’s mission.  I have no doubt the Lord, in His wisdom, led me to Pillar for which I am forever grateful.
