Shenandoah Valley


Annual Report • 2014-2015


Shenandoah Valley Academy, established in 1908, exists to provide a distinctly Seventh-day Adventist college preparatory program through experiences to produce disciples of Jesus who are compassionate citizens prepared for college and careers.


Graduating Adventist Christians who will...

Serve Christ Value Knowledge Accept a Life of Service

“God’s works in nature multiplied, extol His name on ev’ry side.” Notes from our Principal Shenandoah Valley Academy has been challenged during the past few school years. Enrollment declined from 230 in 2011-12 to 175 by December of 2014. Operating losses for fiscal years 2012 to 2014 averaged approximately $700,000 and there have been four principals in the past four years. These pressures resulted in SVA accumulating long-term debt of $1.4 million, including $1.2 million owed to the Potomac Conference. In December 2014, the Potomac Conference agreed to accept $600,000 in full settlement of their $1.2 million loan. SVA’s portion of this 50/50 settlement was possible because six generous SVA alumni/ friends committed to donating $525,000. Since then, nine other alumni/friends have joined them in eliminating the $1.4 million debt. By early 2016, the two remaining pledges of $100,000 each will be paid and the indebtedness of SVA will be eliminated! Praise the Lord!! As you will read in this report, donations for debt retirement, operations and other projects resulted in an operating increase of $595,000 for FY 2015. The cafeteria dining room and bathrooms have been completely remodeled, including new tables and chairs. A new steam cooker in the kitchen (30 years old…) has been installed and the dean’s apartment in Phanstiel Hall was remodeled this summer. Enrollment increased by 15 percent as the largest freshmen class in 15 years (54) registered in August 2015. Our FY 2016 operating budget is based on 180 students and projects an operating increase of $184,000. Eighty-three new students enrolled this year and with a relatively small senior class (34), a bump in enrollment next year is anticipated. With the elimination of SVA’s debt, Shenandoah now has a solid base for sustainable operations. The current FTE of teachers and staff can accommodate approximately 200 students. With an increase in enrollment and continued support from SVA’s alumni/friends -- this school will thrive! We are blessed to have Donald Short as our Principal-in-transition this year. Mr. Short has 13 years of experience as vice principal at Georgia Cumberland Academy and is taking the lead in many of SVA’s operations. Plans are in place for Mr. Short to become SVA’s principal at the end of this school year. I trust you will be inspired by the stories and testimonies in this report from SVA’s students and faculty. I hope you will be encouraged to trace how God has worked His Plan to bring Shenandoah back from the brink of disaster. Nevertheless, SVA is not “out of the woods.” While amazing progress has taken place, Shenandoah’s recovery is still fragile. I hope and pray that each of SVA’s alums and friends will continue to hold this school up in prayer. In my opinion, the opportunities and potential of SVA are unlike any other Adventist boarding academy. With your continued prayers and support, this legendary school will continue to be a positive witness for our God and His Kingdom as we focus on our Mission -- producing Disciples of Jesus. Sincerely, Dale E. Twomley, MBA, PhD • Principal and Business Manager

Objective #1 – SPIRITUALITY: Shenandoah students will progress in developing a loving friendship with Jesus Christ. Opportunities to learn about God and choose life in Him, give me encouragement and the background to live a daily relationship with Jesus. Its a wake-up call to place my focus back on God. When we reach out through music or missions, it seems God says, “Bring what you have learned from this Christian setting and serve. You can do everything through me.” – Brenda Ngetich ‘17

Objective #2 – RELATIONSHIPS: Shenandoah students will develop strong Christian relationships that will guide their behavior and service to others. We encourage each other in a personal friendship with Jesus, so the genuine love of Christ is expressed in our interactions with everyone. Our graduates leave SVA having experienced and applied these spiritual and relationship “life skills.” They extend Christian friendship to others, sharing Christ’s love with the world. – Kelly Menhardt ’79 Girls’ Dean

From Our Director of Development & Alumni Relations My dear Alumni and Friends, you are generous and loyal! Thank you so very much for all you have given and done this year to support our young people, and for resoundingly affirming Christ-centered boarding school education at Shenandoah Valley Academy (SVA). SVA will soon be DEBT FREE! We are now presented with a tremendous opportunity to build and determine a secure financial future for our school by combining our gifts to significantly increase the amount given and the number of individuals committed to giving unrestricted and worthy student dollars to SVA. Will you join us by committing to increase your giving, or perhaps by committing to give back to your school for the very first time? I promise you there is no greater value than investing in the life and Christian education of a young person. Over the past year, it has been an honor to witness individuals take often heroic actions—many sacrificially—to secure the future of our beloved Shenandoah. Principals Dr. Dale Twomley and Dr. John Wagner ’57, Alumni and Friends, board members, faculty and staff, your gifts and efforts are acts of love and deeds of faith which demonstrate the high priority you place on the young people who learn and thrive today, and in the future, on our campus. From the bottom of my heart, thank you each one. Janel Haas Ware ’86 • Director of Development & Alumni Relations

Thank you Loyal Alumni and Friends for giving back to your school. Because of you Shenandoah begins 2016 DEBT FREE, young people continue to learn and thrive at SVA, and as of August 2015 the alumni Open a Door student financial assistance campaign has raised over $200,000--incredible gifts! The Big Virginia Sun has been shining on our beloved school in the Valley for 108 years. Today, SVA shines because of you! Thank you!!! 1982 Mark Griffin Janet (Sanderson) Hesler Perry Mace V.

“The S.V.A. of sacred birth, our own dear school of sterling worth…” Objective #3 – ACADEMICS: Shenandoah students will be recognized for their academic excellence by preparing all of our students for college, work, and careers. In today’s classroom, teaching and instruction is much less about knowledge recall; but rather about the appropriate application of available knowledge to make the world a better place. I challenge students with reflective questions and discussion, guiding them in critical thinking and analysis. In a society which celebrates “self” and blind ambition, I encourage students to think outside themselves and shine the love of Christ to the world around them. – Gabrielle Griffin ’86, Government & World History, Columbia Union Educator of the Year 2014

Objective #5 – WORK ETHICS: Shenandoah students will learn the skills, values, rewards, and dignity of work. I had the best job in maintenance working on and driving the lawn mowers and school vehicles, including my favorites the buses! Mr. Little taught us to be reliable, to work hard and take pride in making a genuine contribution on campus. Now in college, I have real work experience and references to put on my resume. The work attitudes and skills I learned working for Mr. Little apply to the airplane maintenance aspect of my aviation major, and to future work opportunities. – Chris Wilson ‘15

“O Shenandoah, dear Shenandoah, In thee do we delight to rest…” Objective #6 – HEALTH AND WELLNESS: Shenandoah students will improve their awareness and life-style for health and wellness. Cross Country training was strenuous, but we grew stronger and faster. One day, an exhausting push up orchard hill, the next a mile of sprints, then distance day 6 miles. Our efforts were rewarded by the closeness and camaraderie of our team. When one person excels or struggles, everyone encourages and cheers them on. In competition, Shenandoah always has the most school spirit. – Madeleine Ware ‘17

When Dr. Twomley came, he made us start singing the school song. Most people thought it was weird, but now its so much fun. We all know the words and sing and stomp and clap. Sometimes on the bus, or where ever, we just burst into song. We love it, and we feel good about our school. - Valerie Pichot ‘18 11
