Northwest Nazarene University invites the community to the chapel service Fri, Nov. 6, in which alumni will be honored for their accomplishments and service since graduating from the University. The awards given will include Distinguished Service, Professional Achivement, Young Alumnus and Alumnus of the Year.
Jennifer (Roemhildt) Tunehag will be presented with the Alumnus of the Year award for her work in easing the pain of countless thousands of men, women and children forced into prostitution.
For the last 12 years, Tunehag, NNU class of 1989, has been at the forefront of advocacy for the thousands of people brought into Europe who are then forced into prostitution. Her calls to action have been heard at the highest levels of both national and global governance, and she has clearly been a spokesperson for those without a voice. The world has largely turned a blind eye to this modern-day form of slavery, but Tunehag seeks to mobilize people to respond to the horrors of prostitution.
The ceremony honoring Tunehag and three other alumni will take place in the Swayne Auditorium, Friday, November 6, at 10:10am.
