New Places and Faces at AAA 2005-06 School Year

Auburn Adventist Academy opened its doors to the 2005–06 school year Aug. 21. As students arrived on campus, a variety of new places and faces greeted them. Over the summer, two buildings were completed, including the girls' dormitory and the family consumer science center.

As girls moved into the dorm, they were excited about the spacious rooms, brand new grand piano, and beautiful lobby area, not to mention a bathroom in each dorm room, a recreation area, and card access keys.

The brand new family consumer science building holds classes like International Foods, Sewing, Interior Design, Foreign Languages, and Health for Life.

Auburn’s administration building was also recently remodeled, complete with painted walls and new carpeting.

There were also new additions to AAA’s faculty family. Auburn welcomed Spanish teacher Melissa Saunders, a recent graduate of Pacific Union College. Walter Turner, a veteran teacher, came with his family to Auburn from Stockton, Calif., and is teaching Bible, history, and geography. Dahlie Conferido, former La Sierra University teacher, joined the team to teach English, advanced writing, history and stage performance.

Auburn is also blessed to have several taskforce workers on board. Kim Brown, a graduate of AAA and a student at Walla Walla College, is working as an assistant girls' dean in our new dormitory. Joshua Woods, a theology major from Southern Adventist University, is working as the assistant boys' dean. Jennifer McGhee, former missionary to Korea, is the new youth pastor at the AAA Church and is working with Auburn’s international students and youth Sabbath School.

Students and staff look forward to an excellent school year as they are blessed by the new places and faces that God has provided.
