Norma Cook Everist, Professor, Author and International Speaker Norma grew up in Mason City and graduated from NIACC. She received a BA, two Masters degrees and a Ph.D. Not only were there glass ceilings, but rigid institutional barriers for women who wished to serve professionally in the Church. But she persisted and became many “firsts” in her field. Norma worked in St. Louis, Detroit and New Haven, Ct. She taught at Yale Divinity School and then for 38 years at Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque. As a teaching theologian, she has spoken in over 36 states and in countries on four continents. She has published 14 books and over a hundred articles. She encourages: “When a door opens a crack, walk through and open it further for others to enter.”
