Alumni Homecoming Weekend: March 30-April 1, 2018

100th Anniversary of Gem State Adventist Academy

The year 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of Gem State Adventist Academy. This year’s Alumni Homecoming Weekend, March 30-April 1, 2018, will be a very special one. All alumni and friends are invited to join GSAA during this special weekend commemorating 100 years of history. Please help us find lost alumni from this year's special anniversary classes. 

A full weekend of events starting Friday is being planned, including a dinner with past faculty on Friday night, Sabbath services, late afternoon concert, Alumni vs Student Volleyball & Basketball games, and a fun walk/run on Sunday to raise funds for the Merit Scholarship. A special veteran’s program will also be held on Friday afternoon to honor alumni who have served.
