Maynard-Reid, known for his enthusiasm and hearty ‘amens’ on the Walla Walla College campus, also spreads that energy and helpfulness around the community. Besides leading out in WWC’s annual Service Day, he has served on the Union-Bulletin advisory board, as vice president for the United Way, and as chair of the Rotary Club’s international service committee, as well as being involved in numerous church-sponsored activities.
He was honored for that humble service with the college’s Community Service Award, which is awarded annually to a faculty or staff member who has shown exceptional service to the Walla Walla area.
“We are proud of Pedrito and believe his efforts to build bridges between the college and the community deserve this recognition,” says WWC President Jon Dybdahl, who presented Maynard-Reid with the award Wednesday evening (Nov. 30).
Maynard-Reid has been at WWC for 16 years, serving as professor of biblical studies and missiology and, for the last six years, as vice president for spiritual life and mission.
