Neryamn Nieves

Neryamn R. Nieves, Ph.D.

Assistant Director of Multicultural Scholarship Programs

Ext. 2123

Messiah College is by far Neryamn's favorite place to work.  In fact, this is her fourth job at Messiah, fifth if you consider her time here as a student.  She hopes her love for Messiah and enthusiasm for learning will encourage every student whose path she crosses.

When she is not at Messiah, you might find Neryamn reading a novel, helping Lucas with homework, doing laundry, driving Micaela to soccer, Esteban to concerts or lacrosse and Mateo to basketball.  She might also be singing with the youth worship team, teaching Sunday school or Girls Only at the First Spanish Assembly of God in Lancaster where she serves as lay Youth Pastor together with her husband, Mario.

She hopes one day to board a cruise ship and travel to all the port cities of Central and South America.  If this does not become reality, she is content to wait until eternity when she hopes to travel by the speed of thought.
