Bahamas Academy Alumni Weekend April 8 & 9

Update April 8, 2017

Excitement. Energy. Refreshing. Enthusiasm

These are words that described the Bahamas Alumni Weekend held April 7 and 8, 2017 at the school. Energy was brought to us by Brenda Scott, class of 1980, who served as the Sabbath School Superintendent for the morning. We all laughed when she said she was a "member of the elite class of 1980. The class was elite because it was made of up student who for a long while thought they could not graduate." She said she wasted two years of school. She worked a lot at home and came to school to have fun. "Why should I work at school also," she argued to herself.'

The sermon for the worship hour was given by ministerial intern, Lorenzo Rolle, class or 2010. He shared with us principles from the story of Hosea and his unconditional love for his estranged wife.

We were blessed to have attending Betty Moses, class of 1935; and Phil Antonio, class of 1938. On Friday night, Betty Moses shared what was Bahamas Academy like in the 1930s. Also sharing on Friday night was the first Bahamian principal for Bahamas Academy, Pastor Hugh Roach.
