Community service award

Doug Taylor receives recognition for community service

Doug Taylor, associate director of Student Financial Services, received the Walla Walla University Community Service award at the 138th Annual Walla Walla Valley Chamber of Commerce Awards presentation, which was held virtually this year due to COVID-19.

“Doug has given hundreds of hours in volunteer time to the Walla Walla Valley,” said Cassie Ragenovich, recently retired director of Student Financial Services. “Whether it's working with families of terminally ill patients through hospice, helping struggling agencies with financial guidance, or helping to start a nonprofit that’s still strong over 30 years later, he’s made a difference in our community.”

Taylor’s service at WWU and in the community has included volunteering as a direct hospice care worker, organizing the first World AIDS Day program in Walla Walla, and working for almost eight years as the University Church treasurer. He has also been treasurer of the WWU Alumni Association for four years and served as the WWU Village Club sponsor for 13 years.

“One of Walla Walla University’s core themes is generosity in service; Doug’s service to the Walla Walla Valley shows his commitment to that value.” said Ragenovich.
