Washington Adventist University

Washington Adventist University’s dean of the School of Arts and Social Sciences, Gaspar Colón, PhD, and his wife, May-Ellen Colón, PhD, recently received the highest award for excellence in family life work in the North American Division (NAD). The division’s Department of Family Ministries presented them with the 2009 Distinguished Service Award during the recent annual Family Life Celebration weekend at Andrews University (Mich.).

Washington Adventist Hospital (WAH) and Columbia Union College (CUC), both based in Takoma Park, Md., received the Business/Education Partnership Award from the Greater Silver Spring Chamber of Commerce for their contributions to quality healthcare and the education of future medical professionals.

Yesterday some 85 members of the Columbia Union Conference Executive Committee, all eight conference executive committees, and the CUC Board of Trustees (CUCBOT) met at the Southern Asia church to dialogue about Columbia Union College, the Adventist college in the nation’s capital.
