Northwest Nazarene University invites the community to the chapel service Fri, Nov. 5, in which four alumni will be honored for their accomplishments and service since graduation. The awards presented will include Distinguished Service, Professional Achievement, Young Alumnus and Alumnus of the Year.
Pairing a passion for music and a gift for teaching, Dr. Pamela Litsey DeBoard, the 2010 Alumna of the Year, has been fulfilling the Great Commission in unique ways since her time at Northwest Nazarene College nearly 40 years ago. Through her organization, Hawaii Education of the ARTS (HEARTS), she provides an exemplary arts education to children that not only builds their confidence, changes their aspirations, and even raises their test scores but also opens an avenue to share Christ’s love with families from varied backgrounds. Both DeBoard’s academic and professional achievements and her personal investment in the lives of those she works with have truly honored her alma mater while also building God’s Kingdom.
The ceremony honoring DeBoard and three other alumni will take place in Swayne Auditorium of the Brandt Center, Friday, November 5, at 10 a.m.
