To help union educators grow and minister effectively, Donovan Ross, vice president for Education, and his team partnered with the Bainum Family Foundation to offer a two-year coaching program for school principals; engaged new academy principals, conference super- intendents and associates in a two-year mentoring and training program; supported educators in obtaining required North American Division certifications and endorsements; and sponsored administrators who participated in the 2021 Association of Seventh-day Adventist School Administrators Virtual Conference.
They also supported the expansion of Lake Nelson Adventist Academy in Piscataway, N.J., to a full senior academy and the following elementary schools to junior academies: Northern Ohio Adventist Academy in Sheffield Lake; Parkersburg Academy, W.Va.; Vine Haven Adventist School, Vineland, N.J.; and Vienna Adventist Academy, Va.
