2002
Jon Rorem

Meritorious Service Award
in 1990 from Columbia Lutheran Ministries when I had completed two years of turn-around efforts for them.  When I find the more specific wording of the presentation I will forward it to you.

Administrator 1988 - 1995
CEO 1995-2000

President 2000-2002

The second came when I retired some 12 years later.  I value most highly the annual review which always mentioned the spiritual leadership that accompanied my business direction for this organization. 

The following resolution was presented to me upon retirement.

Whereas, Jon Rorem, has serviced Columbia Lutheran Ministries as Administrator and Chief Executive Officer with honor and distinction for the past fourteen years, and
Whereas Jon has at the same time been a shining example of Christian values for the Board, staff, patients and families, and
Whereas all in the Columbia Lutheran Ministries family will miss Jonís kind and gentle spirit, but wish him well in retirement,

Now therefore bit it resolved as follows:
Resolved that on behalf of the entire Columbia Lutheran Ministries family, the Board thanks Jon for his capable business and spiritual leadership, and
Further resolved that the entire Columbia Lutheran Ministries family wishes Jon the best of retirement, where every day is Saturday and every hour a joy, and
Further resolved that the Board sends the following Irish blessing, to watch over Jon along his way

            May joy and peace surround you,
            Contentment latch your door,
            And happiness be with you now,
            And bless you evermore.

In witness whereof, the Chair and Secretary have hereunto affixed hands on this 27th day of March, 2002.
