Byline: The Register-Guard

A Vancouver, Wash., couple who graduated from Northwest Christian College have donated $725,000 to help the college buy and remodel a building for classrooms and faculty offices.

James and Donna Pomajevich said they made the gift in honor of teachers and classmates who had helped and inspired them from the first grade on. The building, to be known as the Pomajevich Faculty Building, is at 1090 Alder St., across the street from the college's Morse Event Center.

"The college played a very important role in shaping our lives and we felt it was important to give something back to the school that would make a difference to the faculty," said Jim Pomajevich. The couple graduated in 1964. "We hope that this gift will encourage other alumni and friends of the college to fund the remodeling and furnishing of the faculty building."

In 2000, the Pomajeviches endowed an NCC scholarship with $585,000. They said both gifts reflect their belief in the value of faith-based education.

David Wilson, president of Northwest Christian College, expressed his gratitude. "Their generosity and continued commitment to this college are truly inspiring to all of us who love and care for this institution and its mission," he said.
