Connecting Columbia Union Seventh-day Adventists

Nino Transitions to Columbia Union Education Team

Story by Stephen Lee

Her name derives from Hebrew, and it means “compassionate friend.” Without a doubt, Ruth Nino lives up to her name, further cementing its meaning with total devotion and loyalty to Seventh-day Adventist education.

Nino started her ministry of education in the New Jersey Conference’s (NJC) Tranquility School in Andover. She later taught at Waldwick Adventist School—the school she attended during her elementary years and where her love for education grew.

The natural steps to leadership followed, and Nino became the principal of Waldwick, where she remained for 12 years until recently accepting the call from the Columbia Union Conference to be the assistant director for early childhood education. The NJC administrators, colleagues, parents and students thank Nino for her dedicated service to God and education.
