2006 Graduates Changed by Auburn Adventist Academy Experience

For 2006 graduates, Auburn Adventist Academy is a caring environment that fosters a love for God and others. And the academy has greatly changed their lives.

“I came to Auburn as a shy and timid girl,” confided Alaina Lemire, of St. Helens, Ore. “But the people and teachers embraced me, and made me feel like I fit in. I now feel like I’m a part of this academy. I’m so happy here.”

She says, “At Auburn I found God, a great education and understanding friends. What more could I want in a school?”

Students attending AAA are not only from the Pacific Northwest, but they travel from all over the world to attend this Christian high school.

Rotepakorn “Boss” Jhupattankul, of Bangkok, Thailand, said, “The teachers in this school are very kind and helpful. Whenever I talked to them, I felt like they were one of my friends.”

Carlie Munroe of Chehalis, Wash., came to Auburn as a freshman after attending a public elementary school. She appreciated the Christian education, but when asked what she would remember about AAA, she replied, “I went on a mission trip [during my junior year] to Peru! That really did something for me.”

Soon after the mission trip, Munroe was baptized. Her sister Meghan (also a senior) and brother Zachary (freshman) attend AAA as well.

Sam Tando of Puyallup, Wash., summed up AAA this way. “Auburn Academy. A good place. A friendly place. A place where, through the students and faculty, God’s ministry is spread. The students, faculty, and volunteers are what make the academy such a fine place.”
