Diane Moore Receives Distinguished Young Alumni Award

PORTLAND, Ore.—Multnomah University is pleased to announce Diane Moore as the recipient of this year’s Distinguished Young Alumni Award.
Moore earned a master’s degree in counseling from Multnomah in 2011 and started a private practice later that year. In everything she does, Moore’s goal is to point people toward truth.
“If you create an environment of truth, then people will heal,” she said.
Michelle Peel-Underwood, director of Alumni Relations for MU, said Moore’s commitment to serving others made her an ideal choice for the award.
“It is an honor for us to recognize God’s faithfulness in Diane’s life,” Peel-Underwood said. “She is exceptionally gifted and incredibly intuitive. Her mission to inspire and equip others to become healthy and whole individuals, reflecting Christ’s character, is admirable and inspiring.”
Moore’s passion for counseling was ignited in 1994, when she served as a children’s pastor. She went on to host “Parent Talk,” a call-in radio show on KPDQ, before entering Multnomah’s MAC program and becoming a licensed counselor.
Moore will be honored during the Distinguished Young Alumni Awards Reception on Tuesday, Oct. 22, at the JCA Student Center. Students and alumni are welcome to attend the event, which starts at 10 a.m. during Chapel.
“I look forward to introducing her to our students as they anticipate living out their own dreams beyond Multnomah,” Peel-Underwood said.
