Alumni Weekend at Andrews Academy

Friday Night Alumni Weekend Vespers (Oct. 19, 2018) was presented by Andrews Academy class of 1999. The class, plus a few from 1994 led in the vespers program. The class had requested favorites from the honored classes prior to alumni weekend so the music included favorites from each honored class. Between the songs some shared short testimonials.

 

Alumni Sabbath School began at 10 am Sabbath morning (Oct. 20, 2018) in the chapel. It was an inspirational presentation of tributes interspersed with music. Through their tributes, presenters shared how Jesus used the faculty and experiences of Andrews Academy to change their lives. It was an inspirational time of sharing seeing how God has blessed.

 

Alumni Proceedings were also interspersed throughout the Sabbath school program. Honor Classes were recognized by having each class stand . In some cases, the honored classes were asked to come to the front of the chapel to be recognized. For example, the class of 1969, celebrating their 50 year reunion, were presented gifts. Mr. Dean Boward was honored teacher of the year, and following this recognition, he directed the AA alumni band. Mr. Ed Vitrano ‘69 was honored as alumnus of the year. Mr. Knobby Mauro, former AA principal, was also recognized for his contribution to Andrews Academy, with a portion of the commons being named “Knobby Lobby.”

 

Pastor Glassford, Ms Linda Sadford, Mrs. Pellegrini, and a number of Andrews Academy students led in children’s church. After singing, the leaders acted out and retold the story of David. Squeals of delight could be heard from they children as they not only learned the story but also experienced the story! Before and after the story, the children worked on craft projects. A big thank you to many students who helped with children’s church.

 

While the children were in the library, the Worship Service occurred in the Academy Chapel. The sermon was presented by Renee Stepp from the class of 1994. Numerous alumni participated with scripture, prayer, and special music. The current Silhouettes invited Alumni to join them in singing When I Survey The Wondrous Cross. This was also directed by Mr. Dean Boward. It was great to see a number of families with two generations of alumni singing together.

 

Following worship service, a lunch was provided for the Alumni. We thank the NHS officers, PPI, and many other volunteers for organizing the dinner. It was another good opportunity for classmates to reunite and share what has happened in their lives since graduation and remember experiences from academy years. Many shared how much of a positive impact Andrews Academy had on their lives. During lunch each of the honored classes had their photo taken.
