Auburn Adventist Academy Welcomes New Principal
After a year-long search, Auburn Adventist Academy and Washington Conference are pleased to welcome Samir Berbawy as AAA's new principal. Having recently returned from abroad as the president of the Egypt Field, Berbawy has also served as an administrator and educator for 30 years.
With a passion for Christian education, Berbawy is excited to join Auburn's school family. "Being with young people gives me energy," he explains when sharing his enthusiasm for educating teens. "I am eager to introduce people to Christ. I want them to see Jesus whether they choose him or not."
"We are pleased to welcome Samir and Tanya Berbawy to the Washington Conference,” says John Freedman, Washington Conference president and AAA board chairman. "With valuable experience in classroom teaching, school administration and also as an ordained pastor, we were impressed by Samir’s spiritual depth, experience and love for people.”
In order to facilitate a smooth transition, Marvin Mitchell, current interim principal, will work closely with the principal-elect to finish out the school year.
Berbawy and his wife, Tanya, have been married for 31 years and have two grown children, Kristin and Ramzy.
