Mother Lode Adventist Junior
Academy Helps With Church Renovations
This spring, 11 students from
Mother Lode Adventist Junior Academy and the Discover Life SDA Church in Sonora, Calif., traveled to Window Rock, Ariz., to help a local church plant with building renovations! The group put in new cabinets, a countertop, kitchen sink, and vanities. Led by Pastor Tom Gearing, the volunteers also conducted a Vacation Bible School for local children in the community, as well as hosted an evening cooking school! “It is activities like these that allows our young people to answer God’s call in their life,” said Geoff McRae, principal of MLAJA. Yet another way in which young people from our academies are living to serve.

Expands STEM Program
With Versacare Grant
Students at Fresno Adventist Academy are learning about a wider variety of career fields, thanks in part to a grant from Versacare this year for their STEM program! “We are so grateful for the grant from Versacare!” said Chandra Young, principal at Fresno Adventist Academy. “Last year, we put in
a small, career-based STEM lab.
The grant from Versacare will pay
for the computers needed for the
expansion.” Among some of the modules now available to FAA students in their new STEM lab are: digital manufacturing, digital music, forensics, dentistry, robotics, and veterinary medicine. According to Young, students are learning skills that will be necessary for success in school and in almost every career.
