Printers Make Face Shields
In April, Loma Linda Academy repurposed their classroom 3-D printers to print masks and other supplies for medical workers and others. Three 3-D printers operated by current and former staff and students joined the fight against COVID-19 by producing 130 face shields for those who needed them. The printers, normally used in LLA’s STEM and Maker Space classrooms, worked around the clock to build essential supplies for front-line medical workers and others.

Pacific Union Office of Education Support Future Educators
Every year since 2015, the Pacific Union Office of Education has provided four-year scholarships to high school seniors pursuing degrees in education at an Adventist university. One of this year’s recipients is Amanda Barnes, a graduate of Pacific Union College Preparatory School who will begin her higher education journey at Pacific Union College in the fall. Barnes attributes her interest in teaching to her own teachers. “They inspire me to look for God as I learn, and to approach life with a growth mindset,” she shared. “I want to be a teacher who inspires a love and enthusiasm for learning in all my students, no matter what their abilities may be.”
