Diane Morris – Grad Class of ‘61
So many memories flooded through my mind during the 50th celebration of our Grad Class at Multnomah. Some of the most significant events of my life took place during that year. Read the rest of this entry »
For the past few weeks, I have been hunting down, scanning, and rebuilding (using Illustrator) all of the logos from Multnomah's history. While I was at it, I did a little bit of research and recorded the approximate years during which each logo was used. I finished the project earlier this week, so what you see here is the fruit of my labor; the digital archiving of Multnomah's branding history.

Whether this is your first, second, or third glimpse, this will give you an idea of what I've been up to for the past few weeks in my task of creating and implementing this celebratory logo. Read the rest of this entry »
Spring cleaning is upon some departments at Multnomah. After being around for 75 years (58 at the current campus) a lot of old surprises can pop up.
Recently, in the back of a closet we ran across an original, hand-sewn banner for "Multnomah School of the Bible". It has a logo that was in use during the 1980's and 1990's.
Our cover article in the upcoming Spring 2011 issue of Multnomah magazine came with some amazing photos from an alumni family serving in Nepal - Jonathan and Taryn Isensee. There were far too many to put in the Magazine, so we decided to post them at the space below.

I sat on the return ferry as chilly evening breezes failed to dry away my hot tears. I'd just attended the 2008 Seattle Alumni event where I heard about the new MU teacher-preparation program. Through sobs, I surrendered in prayer. "LORD," I cried, "I have a sick feeling that You want me to complete that program, and that's the last thing I want to do!

When we hired Grossenbacher Bros. to help us with our gift to the newest batch of MU grads, we had no idea it would be done by a single person at a hand-operated leather press. In fact, when Michelle Peel and I visited Grossenbacher's facility we expected to see a room full of large machines and a fully automated process. We couldn't be further from the truth.
