This year, Multnomah University awarded Dr. Norm Cook as the Honored Alumnus of the year, recognizing him as an alumnus who exemplifies Christ and the mission of Multnomah as demonstrated by his life.
On September 23, a special chapel event was held in his honor, with Dr. Cook's long-time friend, Bud Schaeffer, making a surprise guest appearance.
Dr. Cook: a missionary to Taiwan for 16 years, to Multnomah Seminarian graduate, to chairman of Multnomah's Intercultural Studies department for 23 years.
In 2003, Dr. Cook retired. However, he continues counseling, teaching weekend seminars, and speaking at various churches with Mrs. Cook.
"The Alumnus of the Year award is one of the highest honors Multnomah can bestow on an alum, and Dr. Cook is certainly one worthy of such recognition," Michelle Peel, Multnomah's director of alumni relations said.
