The community of Chesapeake Conference's Spencerville Adventist Academy (SAA) welcomes three new faces to the 2021–22 school year:

Carmen Alejandra Esposito is SAA’s new school counselor. Esposito, an experienced teacher, vice principal and counselor, has worked in both North and South America. She has a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling Psychology. “My ultimate career goal is to inspire every student in such a way that I will see each one in heaven,” says Esposito.

Carol (Lindsey) Wright, who served for 39 years in the Seventh-day Adventist Church, passed away Thursday, September 9, 2021, after an extended battle with dementia and Parkinson's disease. Read more about her life here.

The Wright Family has announced that Carol's memorial service will be held at Potomac Conference's Sligo church in Takoma Park, Md., on Sunday, September 26, at noon.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Lourie Center for Children's Social and Emotional Wellness.

We will continue to share more information as it becomes available.

As part of the prayer initiative, “Praying the Mission Forward,” members, church families, schools and conference leaders accepted an exciting challenge earlier this year as they prayed daily for 30 days.

Spearheaded by assistant to the president Shawn Shives, conference leaders joined executive committee and association committee members via phone each night to pray for the eight strategic initiatives, as well as for the upcoming camp meeting and any concerns the prayer partners raised.

Rick Cutright, who retired in mid-June, was an underground coal miner for 22 years before accepting a call to pastoral ministry in 1997. He began pastoring Mountain View Conference’s (MVC) Buckhannon (W.Va.) church and later added the Glenville (W.Va.) and Braxton (W.Va.) churches. During Cutright’s tenure, his wife, Bonnie, taught at the Brushy Fork Adventist School in Buckhannon for more than 10 years.
