Two College Supporters Honored During Community Day
Martha Bamfield '83 and Dr. William Thiemkey '75 Saturday were honored for their service to Alma College during the College's annual Community Day at Bahlke Field.
The Athletic Department represented by Denny Griffin, athletic training education program director, during a pre-game ceremony presented a football signed by the training staff and the team to Thiemkey for his service to the College and the athletic program as a physician. Co-owner and a practitioner in the St. Louis Family Clinic, Thiemkey was influential in starting the Alma College Gratiot Area Physicians and Students (G.A.P.S.) program, designed to introduce students to the rigors of medical school and the health care environment. He is the medical director for the Wilcox Medical Center on campus. As a team physician since 1983, he has treated athletic injuries and conducted athletic physicals prior to the athletic seasons. Thiemkey is moving to Ashville, N.C. for opportunities in the emergency medicine field.
