Molly Gram Receives
Four-Year Scholarship
from the Pacific Union

At her graduation from Newbury Park Academy in June of this year, Molly Gram was presented with a scholarship towards an education degree by Berit von Pohle, Director of Education for the Pacific Union Conference—one of five scholarships the department gives out each year. Gram discovered her love of teaching while leading out gymnastics classes for children ranging from 1 to 14-years-old. Her hope is to not only inspire young people with the fun learning of learning, asking questions, and being curious, but to also teach children about God’s love. “I want to be able to show up to work every day and teach children about the love God has for us.”



Molly Gram, an incoming education major at Pacific Union College, discovered her passion for education while teaching gymnastics classes. Gram is a graduate of Newbury Park Academy.
