Gertrude Beintema

Athletic Department Secretary Gertrude Beintema

A Central College employee for more than 30 years, beginning in 1972, Gert joined the athletic department staff as office manager in 1979. Her position quickly expanded to also include serving as the ticket manager, business manager, banquet coordinator and travel director for Central’s 19 intercollegiate sport teams.

Known for her tireless effort and attention to detail, Beintema is even more deeply appreciated for the maternal guidance and friendship she provided for the hundreds of Central student-athletes it is her joy to serve.

Beintema will retire from her position at the end of this month.
