by Victoria Stearns, Public Relations Writer

Lt. Gen. Loren Reno, dean of the school of business administration at Cedarville University, was appointed to the Federal Military Jobs Commission by Ohio Senate President Keith Faber. Reno was selected for his military service, executive leadership in federal military organizations, and leadership in higher education.

As a member of the committee, Reno will help develop and maintain an ongoing strategy for retaining military agencies. He’ll also work toward preserving private sector jobs in Ohio.

“If there is glory in this selection, it is the Lord's.  If I can serve the commission and state in a way that results in economic growth, the benefit will far outweigh the effort,” said Reno.

Reno will assist the commission by collaborating between local and regional entities to further the military facilities and effectively implement ways to enhance efficiency in public and private agencies.
  
Reno retired from the Air Force after serving for 38 years. He worked with all four military branches to provide logistical support until coming to Cedarville University in 2012.
 
Under Reno’s leadership, the school of business administration’s enrollment has increased 21 percent. Students are learning from faculty members who bring professional business expertise into the classroom. Students are encouraged to engage in the world and become proactive influences in business.
