North American Division College Fair

Today ten of our North American Seventh-day Adventist Colleges and Universities came on to the Madison Academy campus and spoke with all the high school students about the benefits of Adventist education and the different programs available on their campuses.

Burman University, La Sierra University, Adventist University of Health Sciences, Washington Adventist University, Walla Walla University, Andrews University, Union College, Southern Adventist University, Oakwood University, and Pacific Union College were in attendance.

Other than the awesome pens that the colleges gave out for free, the students really enjoyed talking to the different enrollment counselors.

“It was great talking to professionals who knew how to help me achieve my dream of becoming a physical therapist.” -Jack Wheeler, sophomore after talking to the Southern Adventist University and Burman University counselors.

“I didn’t know that Washington Adventist University existed and I didn’t know about all the different programs that Oakwood University offered. It’s cool to see how many Adventist colleges are out there.” -Connor Collins, freshmen

“This was great opportunity for us. We were able to talk with people who knew how to help us reach our dreams.” -Abby Tishaw, freshmen

“I grew up in Massachusetts and went to Camp Winnekeag. Since then I moved to Illinois and now Tennessee. I never had considered Andrews University as an option, but the enrollment counselor was the old Archery director from Camp Winnekeag. That was so cool to talk to him and learn more about Andrews.” -Morgan Currie, Senior

Overall it was a great success and the students saw that Adventist higher education isn’t simple a continuation of academy life, but a place where students are trained to be leaders in their desired career field and for Christ.

Alumni return to Madison Academy to reminisce, reconnect and reinvest

The first event of the weekend was a golf tournament held at Country Hills Golf Course in Hendersonville.  The weather was excellent with sunny skies and the temperature a balmy 83 degrees.  Registration was at 7 am with the shot gun start at 8am. There were prizes given for the closest to the hole, putting, and longest drive. The fundraiser raised over $12,000!

In the evening starting at 6 pm, the remodeled Learning Commons was a place for alumni to eat some light snacks and get caught up with classmates.  The classes of 1966 showed up in droves and also set up a lovely memorial for their classmates who have passed.

Sabbath was the highlight of the weekend as more classmates and friends worshiped together in the gym. The gym was bustling early with chatter and laughing. The hand bell choir, Bellissimo!, started the program with a lovely rendition of “How Great Thou Art”. The program continued featuring the Madison Academy band, choir and alumni choir. One alumni choir member, from the class of 1965, whispered on his way up to the stage that the true reason why he joined the choir was to be able to sit with the girls on the bus and they traveled to different churches!

Instead of one main sermon we had three sermonettes featuring Sarah Hamm Cruzado (’06), Mary Wood (’56) and Jackson Wood (’17), and Rodney (’89) Stephanie (’91) and Parker Rufo (2020). These small messages shared a personal testimony of how they were influenced by Madison Academy for Christ.

Next year alumni weekend will be held on October 6-8. Save the dates! We will be celebrating our honor classes ending in ‘2 and ‘7.
