First Project Completed at MEA With Matching Grant

July 12, 2018

On April 20, the Adventist Education Foundation (AEF) board voted to pledge up to $100,000 for maintenance projects and campus improvements at Mount Ellis Academy (MEA) in Bozeman, Mont., if the academy raised matching funds up to $100,000 by May 1, 2019.

The first project under this matching grant has been completed with Academy Drive being repaired, sealed and striped on July 1 under the direction of Brent Tungesvik, MEA maintenance director.

AEF was setup in 2008 when Larry Shideler (MEA class of 1962) and his wife, Sharon, sold their business and set up the foundation to benefit MEA for campus improvements, improved safety, campus upkeep and maintenance.
