Editor’s Message Dear Alumni & Friends – As I write this, graduation is a recent memory and MEA is once again settling into the quieter buzz of summer. Only a few students linger, busily working for our maintenance department or in another capacity here on campus. The liveliness which normally permeates our halls is now muted and the ticking of my office clock, which I would normally not even notice, seems deafening. Outside the skies are grey – June gloom, some call it - and as I draw a second breath from a whirlwind year and contemplate what to put in this column, the first thing that comes to mind is, “I’m sorry.” Apologies aren’t something that come naturally to most people. We’re far more likely to try and brush aside our infractions, hoping they were unnoticed or unobtrusive. And yet apologies can be the most healing of all communications. In my job as Director of Development, I spend a large portion of my time saying, “Thank You” – and I’m grateful to have that opportunity. But a significant shortcoming on my part has necessitated a different message. By the time you read this it will have been nearly 19 months since I have produced a fresh copy of “Heirborne News.” The reasons are many and varied, but ultimately the responsibility rests squarely on my shoulders. This office has a mandate to stay in touch with you, our alumni and friends, and one of our main avenues for accomplishing that is through this newsletter. By not doing so for such an extended period, we have risked falling out of touch. Worse, we have potentially seemed disconnected and uncaring. For this, I am profoundly apologetic. I am committed to remaining in touch with you, our alumni and friends, by once again making “Heirborne News” a top priority for this office. Maintaining open lines of communication with each and every person is a daunting goal, but one I am devoted to. Informing you of the latest plans following our successful win of the Kohl’s Cares for Kids grant contest (see, Sewer Update, pg 11) is not only important, but it is vital. Updating you on Alumni happenings like local chapter meetings and Alumni weekend plans is imperative and I am committed to doing so. As you read through the pages of this issue, I hope you find yourself brought up to date with the happenings here on campus. We’ll take a look back at the last two alumni weekends and we’ll look forward to the possibilities for the future. In short, I hope you will feel both enlightened and informed. And I hope this fresh start will be the beginning of an improved relationship between you, our valued alumni and friends, and our cherished alma mater, Mount Ellis Academy.

COVER:

On June 3, 2011, the thirteen members of the 2011 graduating class celebrate

the moment and become the newest members of the MEA Alumni Association.


Principally Speaking

A

h yes. I stood a little straighter than usual with shoulders squared and chest slightly inflated. What brought about this feeling of pleasure and even a bit of pride? A gleaming floor of freshly set tile, the vivid color of virgin paint, brand new toilet partitions with automatic flushers inside, and super hygienic motion-sensing sinks faucets. With only a day or two to spare the gym bathroom renovation was complete and ready for alumni homecoming. It may seem odd to take such pride in a bathroom, but this is my school. Everything matters, whether it’s a student striving to achieve, a teacher preparing an engaging lesson, or a brand new bathroom that reflects the desire we have to be excellent in all things.

Put another way, we only need to raise $15,000 to accomplish $50,000 worth of improvements.

I had that same feeling of pride two years ago when the dormitory renovation was completed and students moved into brand new rooms. Renewal is a powerful thing. When we stop striving to improve we stagnate and wither. Mount Ellis Academy is a school with a tremendous history. That history is not a set of laurels to rest on but a foundation to build on.

Repave Academy Drive Total Cost AEF Pledge Funds still needed

That endowment is managed by the Adventist Education Foundation. The foundation board just recently voted to contribute $35,000 toward $50,000 of campus improvement projects for the current calendar year.

Industrial Arts Building Carpet (Stairs & Classroom) Total Cost $4,600 AEF Pledge $3,000 Received $1,000 Funds still needed $ 600 Administration Building Carpet (Entry, Hall, Stairs) Total Cost $8,200 AEF Pledge $6,000 Funds still needed $2,200

If you like giving to projects that make a very visible difference and if you like seeing the effectiveness of your donation multiplied through the power of matching, please consider donating to one of the projects above. You can make your school a more excellent place.

Mount Ellis is committed to help students Discover, Develop, and Serve. The condition of our campus reports on our commitment to do this in an atmosphere of excellence. Many of you know that a significant sum of money was recently donated for the establishment of a maintenance endowment.

Here are the projects we’ve selected:


Alumni Weekend 2010

s tradition dictates, the third weekend of April, 2010, found MEA alums from across the country coming together to relive memories, exchange stories, and share laughs. Amongst the traditional weekend activities, the boyss dormitory was renamed King Residence Hall, in tribute to the years of service Frank & Lauretta King gave to Mount Ellis Academy. The festive mood at that ceremony seemed to mirror the overall feelings for the weekend.

The Mount Ellis Miracle For those who have not heard the story of the Kohl’s miracle, we reprint the following story, written by Darren Wilkins. It was first published in the December 2010 issue of Gleaner magazine.

W

You see, the failing water and sewer system at MEA was under scrutiny by state authorities, and $600,000 was needed to repair it. So when Gwen Emmerson, (Development Director Kevin Emmerson’s mother) alerted the school that Kohl’s was going to give away $500,000 to each of the top 20 schools in a Facebook vote, school officials decided to go for it. With every school in the nation eligible to compete for the grant, it seemed improbable a small Adventist academy in Montana would have a chance. But the skeletal summer staff at the school ignored the odds and launched an all-out effort to spread the word. The phenomenon that followed could fill several books with stories. Here’s the highly condensed version: Despite entering the contest a month late, Mount Ellis vaulted into the top 100 schools in less than three days. Cracking the top 100 captured the attention of

hat would bring hundreds of people from around the country together for a Sabbath at Mount Ellis Academy in the middle of October? It wasn’t camp meeting or alumni weekend. It was a miracle — the miracle of a little Adventist academy winning a $500,000 grant from Kohl’s department stores by finishing ninth out of all the schools in the nation on a Facebook contest. Oct. 16 was not only a day of celebration but also one of recommitment to young people and to Adventist schools everywhere.

the local media in Montana, and the school began receiving almost daily radio, newspaper and TV coverage all over the state. Dozens of local businesses came on board, promoting the school’s cause to all of their customers. Volunteers across the country contributed hundreds of hours, passing out fliers and canvassing university students. Mount Ellis started receiving votes from places like Pakistan, England, Italy, Denmark and Bahrain as foreign student alumni worked to gain votes in their home countries. Students on campus began making daily video sketches for posting on YouTube and Facebook, suggesting ways to get more votes. They even asked Oprah to vote.

Heading into the final week, MEA was still in the top 20 schools, but just barely. At the point when it seemed like the school had peaked and was in danger of falling out of contention, the worldwide Adventist Church rallied like a family for one of its own. Adventist universities asked their students and staff to vote. Churches, large and small, made appeals. Ministries like ADRA, 3ABN and the HOPE Channel spread the word. North American Division administrators sent out communiqués asking all churches and schools to vote for MEA.

The response was overwhelming. Votes rolled in by the thousands. Sister academies dropped walls of provincialism and competition with many not only encouraging their students to vote, but also appealing to their alumni. MEA students and faculty marveled at the massive wave of support for their little school. Other top schools were riding a wave as well. On the final day of voting the outcome was still very much in question with schools closing fast from behind. With five hours to go, an impromptu prayer meeting took place in the school chapel. Students, staff and parents put the results in God’s hands and vowed to be grateful in victory or defeat. In those closing hours, a deluge of votes poured in. As voting closed, MEA had jumped from 17th place to 10th. Interestingly, the school received its 144,000th vote at the very moment voting was to end. Shortly after voting concluded, Barry Curtis, Mount Ellis pastor, posted this on his Facebook wall: “What can we agree on next?” Indeed, think of what can happen in our churches and schools — from the smallest to the largest — when we agree and pursue impossible things with passion. Mount Ellis never could have accomplished this on its own. This was a family thing. A family that included, but was not limited to, our worldwide church. After a long process of validating votes and project approval, MEA was officially declared the ninth-place

school and a $500,000 grant recipient. Work will begin on the new water and sewer infrastructure in the spring of 2012. It was amazing to see people from all walks of life — from the governor’s office to next-door neighbors — coming together for this contest. MEA is grateful to all who voted and for God’s goodness in allowing this unforeseen blessing, but the story doesn’t end there. We continue to receive an increase in queries and general interest in our school. For now there’s one thing we can “all agree on:” God’s blessings are unending.

Really Living DVD If you’d like to learn more about this miracle then you’ll love watching a recent episode of “Really Living.” The hour-long interview-format program goes in-depth into the blessings of Mount Ellis Academy through the years and focuses on the five-week campaign in 2010 for Kohl’s Cares. With a gift of $100 or more to MEA, we’ll be happy to send you your very own FREE copy of this special program. If you would like to order a copy, they are available for $15 from the Development Office here at Mount Ellis Academy.

We Won! Now What?

Photo by: Clay Doss

By Alix Harris

Following the success of the Kohl’s contest and seeing the huge exposure the school received during that time, the decision was made to use the momentum created by the Kohl’s win and create a marketing committee to re-think the way Mount Ellis is presented to the community. In starting this campaign, a new position was created on campus to head up the marketing committee. The perfect person to fill this position immediately popped to mind. Ashley Peterson, who served as a taskforce assistant girls’ dean here last school year, has accepted the call to come back and be the task force director of marketing. During her previous time here Ashley had already created a new brochure for school recruiting and redesigned Heirborne News, and so it was felt that she could step into the position and continue with the program very easily. WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO COME BACK TO MOUNT ELLIS? I spent most of my last year at Andrews University wanting to be back at MEA. I prayed that if it was God’s will for me to go back He would open the door. While here I made friends and experienced God in ways that inspired me to seek a stronger relationship with Him and through that I sought different positions when I returned to school. God has put in my heart a passion for ministry and has led me to continue that with the marketing position here.

WHAT QUALIFIES YOU TO HOLD THIS POSITION? I graduated from Andrews University with Graphic Design with an emphasis in marketing. During my time at Andrews University I was the Media Director for Mosaic (a vespers program), Marketing Director for Andrews University Easter Passion Play 2011, Campus Ministries Outreach Marketing Director, Student Graphic Designer for Pioneer Memorial Church, and Andrews University Student Association Public Relations Officer 2008-2009. Now I want to bring that experience into a single focus for MEA.

WHAT IS MARKETING? Marketing is getting the word out about the school and what we are doing. It is finding ways to get people’s attention and keep that attention. Marketing deals with how people interact with the school, the way they see us visually and how they feel about us because of the way we serve them.

WHAT CHANGES DO YOU WANT TO MAKE IN THE WAY THE SCHOOL IS MARKETED? To get our name out in the community I plan on building relationships with local businesses, which could not only gain their support but create jobs for our students. Another goal I have is to build relationships with surrounding churches and maybe host joint events. I would also like to encourage student involvement in helping me with these goals. I believe that design, and how you market yourself, are important skills to learn no matter what you do in life. If you don’t take yourself seriously, why should anyone else?

WHAT IS YOUR VISION FOR, AND WHAT GOALS DO YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH, IN THIS POSITION? My desire is to not only see the aesthetics and the visual identity of the school set at a higher bar but also to expand our reach for students. A few initial thoughts are to further our presence at local community events, nationwide SDA youth events, and increase our international attendance.

Sewer Update 2011 By Darren Wilkins

L

ast summer a remarkable thing happened. In what seemed like every nation tribe and tongue people were talking about the sewer system at Mount Ellis Academy. It’s old news now that MEA won a $500,000 grant with 144,000 votes in the Kohl’s Cares competition. What a tremendous miracle and a huge blessing! Many of you who worked so hard for us during the contest have inquired about the status of the project. You deserve to know, so here is the latest. It was my hope that we would already be turning dirt and putting pipes in the ground by now. However, when faced with the happy circumstance of having some money to address this big need, a number of unanticipated options presented themselves. The most notable one was that the City of Bozeman expressed some initial willingness to provide a path of least resistance to connect the school to city sewer, thus avoiding the need for a new on-site system. Desiring to make the best possible decision for the school, the MEA operating board appointed an infrastructure committee to evaluate the available options with our engineers and then recommend a way forward. This required a fair bit of study and time. We believe it was time well spent. After weighing the alternatives the infrastructure committee has recommended, and the board has approved, the following plan regarding the school infrastructure and the use of the grant money:

both in terms of initial installation and longterm maintenance. This solution will also allow the school to move forward with construction of new buildings that can be tied into the newer system. 2. T he residual grant money not spent on sewer will be spent addressing the water side of our infrastructure problems, with deeper wells being drilled to alleviate high nitrates and water storage to accommodate peak flow needs and fire suppression. Of course this is all dependant on the Montana DEQ approving the plan and issuing the permits. This process will take a bit of time so we anticipate beginning construction in the spring of 2012. In the meantime, grant money has been invested in the North Pacific Union Revolving Fund and is earning 3.25% interest. The terms of the grant require that the money be spent by the fall of 2012. Thank you so much for your support and interest in this project. I promise to keep the information flowing as the whole thing unfolds.

Development Spotlight By Kevin Emmerson

W

hen I tell people I’m the Director of Development here at Mount Ellis I can usually count on one of two reactions. People are either effusive in their positive comments and support or they’ll expound that recruiting students must be a very difficult job! There’s clearly some confusion out there with just what exactly Development is and why there should be a director for it. To clear up the confusion, just let me say, while development can have many connotations, my usage of the term refers specifically to my job of raising money for the continued operation of Mount Ellis Academy. Now raising money is not something that comes naturally to me. In the wake of the Kohl’s grant (see The Mount Ellis Miracle, pg 8) I’ve heard several people comment that I’m undoubtedly one of the top fundraisers within the Adventist church, and I’m quick to correct them that while I might be one of the top contest winners, that’s in a very different category from fundraising. But my enthusiasm for this job comes from one basic fact - I LOVE Mount Ellis! That love stems from what I see happen here day in and day out – the impact Mount Ellis and its environs have on the lives of young people. In the course of my tenure here I’ve learned my feelings of profound appreciation for MEA are not an isolated sentiment. Many of you feel just like I do and you show your support through your gifts – and we’re VERY GRATEFUL. But did you know that making a donation to Mount Ellis for our Annual Fund or Student Aid is not the only way you can support us? These are critical funds and we depend on your gifts in these areas, but we have multiple other opportunities for support if people would prefer a slightly different option. Over the course of the next several issues of “Heirborne News,” we’ll explore a few of those options in this section.

12

For our first time, let’s take a closer look at one option which might at first seem a bit morbid. Some of you may choose to remember Mount Ellis as a beneficiary in your trust and/or will. Now you may ask, “Why think about the end of life when I’m just enjoying the middle?” But speaking only for myself, I can say living in the moment takes on a new sense of freedom once you have determined how you want things handled in the end. Taking the time to make those wishes legally binding just adds to that sense of security and freedom. But where to start? For many people the thought of planning your estate seems daunting, cumbersome and in every way more troubling than April 15. And yet while there may be similarities, like a lot of potential paperwork, one of the greatest dissimilarities is that establishing a will or trust is something which you need only do once. Or, if you choose to set up a revocable trust, you can change your designations as you choose when you choose. If you would like more information about this or other ways you can benefit Mount Ellis Academy, please feel free to contact my office. I’ll be happy to answer the questions I can and find the answers for those I can’t! As a school affiliated with the Montana Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, we have access to a trust officer for the express purpose of handling questions like these. If you would like to contact him directly, his name is Barry Taylor and he may be reached at (406) 587-3101. Regardless of whether or not you name Mount Ellis as a beneficiary, completing this process can bring profound peace of mind. And if you DO choose to remember MEA, the impact you can leave on this institution is both long-lasting and life-changing.

Academic Focus: Hand Bells

I

n this and future issues of Heirborne News we will be presenting opportunities for project-oriented support. If you’ve ever thought, “I’d like to help, but I want to give towards a specific goal rather than operating costs or student aid,” then this is the section to watch for something that interests you. In this issue we’re focusing on the music department. For generations of Mount Ellis Alumni, weekend tours are a major source of great memories from their years here. Whether it was an Adventist Youth in Action (AYA) church service, gymnastics exposition, or a weekend music tour, time off campus (and the bus ride getting there and back!) created opportunities for real adventure.

By Kevin Emmerson

To bring extra support to the music program we have a goal of outfitting our hand bell choirs to not only excel, but to become top-caliber groups. Hand bells and their supporting accessories are not cheap. A single bell can cost hundreds of dollars. But they are an investment that pays itself back many times over the years. Right now to complete our hand bell choirs, we need to add multiple items and we’re asking for your help. Our list of items follows. If helping with any of these items, or just a portion of these items, is of interest to you, we thank you in advance for your help. Simply make a note that your gift is to go for hand bells and what specific project you would like to fund – we’ll take care of the rest. And as always, remember your gift is tax-deductible! Malmark 5th octave Hand bells with cases $7,440.00 Malmark Choirchimes – 5 octaves $3,850.00 Multi-Cart for Bells $230.00 Bell servicing and refurbishing fund $3,000.00

Many of those same adventures still arrive each year when tours commence for various groups. After being absent for several years, AYA is back on the schedule for the 2011-2012 school year. An extra emphasis is also being made in the music program which now focuses all the energy on our vocal groups (choir and Dynamics) and hand bells (both beginners and advanced). The entire class schedule has been redesigned specifically to help build the music program. Within the next two years, a strings program which has been undertaken at the elementary school will begin bringing students into the academy, adding a string portion to our music offerings as well.

MEA Cruise 2012 By Kevin Emmerson

S

ome of you will remember that in the late fall of 2009 we began promoting the concept of an alumni cruise for August of 2010. That cruise never materialized for a variety of reasons. One alum did make the mention that they wished we had more planned for the cruise than just time together with friends in the great outdoors. Would it be possible, they asked, to coordinate our travel plans with some other organized groups so people could take advantage of more opportunities? Well, that opportunity has just come along. prove to be an unforgettable vacation.

Mount Ellis Academy Alumni have been invited to join the Camp Meeting at Sea cruise from Family Reunion Music in June of 2012 – that’s less than a year away! If you haven’t heard about Camp Meeting at Sea cruises, they have an entire week of fun activities and top-tier speakers lined up for what will

14

Bound for Seward/Anchorage, we’ll depart from Vancouver, BC on June 1, 2012 aboard the amenityladen Celebrity Millennium cruise ship. Over the next seven days we’ll enjoy memorable stops at the ports of Ketchikan, Icy Strait Point, Skagway, and Juneau and even spend time cruising through Hubbard Glacier as another reminder of the majesty and beauty of God’s creation. While on board an entire camp meeting’s worth of meetings will be packed in. Well-known speakers Dwight Nelson and Derek Morris will headline the main sessions flanked by celebrated gospel musicians from both within the Adventist church and beyond. Scheduled to perform are Family Reunion regulars Faith First, Rudy Mecelli, and Gale Jones Murphy, among others. But also included in the mix of artists are several new faces. Allison Speer, a well-known gospel artist, has shared her love of God through her vocal talents, being featured with Bill Gaither and Billy Graham as well as on TBN, 3ABN, and It Is Written, to name but a few. Another exciting addition to the music roster is “The Freedom Singers.” This trio of young men has a harrowing

story of escape from Romania that will inspire a fresh, modern-day picture of faith. June 8, as you disembark from your cruise in Seward, AK, you’ll have the option of going to Anchorage and witness what could be the single largest Bible School graduation the Voice of Prophecy has ever organized in North America. And that’s just the beginning! If you choose, you can stay for another week of camp-meeting on land. In conjunction with the North American division, the Alaska conference will begin a week-long celebration of faith with a different top-tier speaker each evening and challenging workshops each day. If you have watched the Really Living telecast on the Hope Channel then perhaps you’ll enjoy watching a live taping each day. Prices for this incredible cruise start at $899.00 per passenger and that includes the tickets and fees for Camp Meeting at Sea events. The only additional costs are taxes, port charges and gratuities charged by the cruise line. Activities in Anchorage during the

second week of camp meeting are not covered in the cruise price. With this lineup of speakers, musicians and activities, cabins are filling up FAST. If you think you would like to attend, please call us and sign up soon. You don’t want to miss the boat!

For more information please contact our office at (406) 587-5178 ext. 105. We hope to see you on board!
