WWVA Starts Its 120th Year

It's back to school in the Walla Walla Valley. On Aug. 27, 2006, Walla Walla Valley Academy (WWVA) registered 228 students for the 120th year of continuous Adventist secondary education in the valley.

Smiles, cheerful greetings and hugs were prevalent as new friends were made and old acquaintances were renewed.

Sunday evening, the Associated Student Body (ASB) officers hosted the annual "Handshake" on the front lawn of the campus, topped off with root beer floats. During the event, Mindy Coseart, who tragically drowned this past summer, was remembered as a young lady who quietly but winsomely demonstrated her love for Jesus Christ. She would have been a junior this year. A tree will be planted in Coseart’s honor on the front campus.

The school’s theme for 2006–07 is “God first... in all things.” Continuing its rich heritage of education in this valley, the students and staff at WWVA anticipate a great year under the banner of God’s leading.
