Multnomah Reno-Tahoe Receives Letter of Commendation

On August 9, 2011, Multnomah Reno-Tahoe was recognized by the Washoe County Commissioners Office with a letter of commendation. Multnomah received this for enriching Washoe's community through its accredited theological studies, degreed programs, and new library.

The letter was read to county representatives, the local press, Multnomah staff and faculty, and community members. Unanimous applause followed its reading, which served as an encouragement to the staff and faculty who were present.

Commendation Excerpt

"Multnomah University: Reno-Tahoe has a campus located in Washoe County with dedicated staff and faculty, who ensure students have an environment where they can grow in their faith and prepare for a life of ministry."

The full letter can be viewed on the Multnomah University blog.



"There is still a lot of school yet to build, but the library dedication is a significant milestone," John McKendricks, Executive Director of Multnomah Reno-Tahoe, said. "This achievement is the culmination of the hard work of our staff, especially Kati Andreano who had to learn an entirely new job skill in order to support it. To have the city take the time to recognize our work in Reno is incredibly affirming and deeply meaningful to me. It indicates to me that we are rowing in the right direction."
