Sharon Landers, Ph.D.
Dr. Sharon Landers has followed a truly nontraditional path of career development. Sharon served for twenty years with her husband in Brazil as missionaries. During that time she served as Interim Business Manager for their local organization, office manager for extension education for Equatorial Baptist Theological Seminary (before the days of online education), completed the B.A. and M.A. degrees from TCU, and taught history at three institutions in Brazil. She has had extensive experience in cross cultural and linguistic diversity.
After returning to live in the USA, Sharon completed her Ph.D. in history from Texas Christian University, taught as an adjunct at Belmont University, and worked with the founders of Williamson College to secure legal approval to operate as a higher educational institution. She began teaching history classes at Williamson College in 2000. She succeeded David Wead as Academic Dean of the College in 2004 and served until 2014, when she was granted Dean Emeritus status.
She and her husband John live in Brentwood, Tennessee. They have three children, three grandchildren, and a dog.
