Hinsdale Adventist Academy First New Board Meeting

Posted on July 26th, 2013

photoThis year Hinsdale Adventist Academy (HAA) restructured their school board from a 28-member representation board to a 13-member competency based board. The new school board held their first official meeting on June 25, accompanied by AAF staff and board members.

Below is a letter from HAA School Board Chair Meechai Tessalee about the meeting:

On June 25, 2013, the New Board of Hinsdale Adventist Academy (HAA) was born.  While the New Board met and envisioned what HAA would look like in 5 years, the Alumni Awards Foundation (AAF) was already busy raising the bar of excellence at HAA in every aspect.  The AAF management team began implementation of our education business plan that addresses every aspect of running a school.  To name a few: emphasis is placed on Spiritual strength, Academic strength, Teacher and Administrative professional growth and accountability, and an excellent physical plant.


The New Board now focuses on Long Term Visioning, promoting community awareness of HAA, and fundraising.  As an example, the board identified that our high school physical plant will need a major upgrade to accommodate a significant increase in enrollment.  The Board plans on making this possible through a major capital campaign.

As I looked around at our board panel at its’ inaugural session, one fact is true.  Every member on the board has a heart for HAA.  Every member has been touched in a unique way by Adventist Education.  Every member has a genuine desire to give back to HAA what Adventist Education gave to them.  As we concluded our board meeting, the board members prayed that the Lord continue to bless HAA.  I ask you to do the same.  We all believe that every child needs to be taught in a loving, nurturing, Christ-centered environment, where they can discover God’s great purpose for them.
