MOTHER DUNCAN'S

ENROLLS IN THE ACADEMY

On August 13, 2017, the great-granddaughter of the late Mrs. Margaret Duncan enrolled as a legacy student at Pine Forge Academy. Asia Mims-Johnson is the granddaughter of Billy Johnson (Class of 1962). Billy Johnson lived on the Academy campus for more than a decade. He attended Jesse R. Wagner and Pine Forge Academy, while his mother - Mother Duncan - served as the long-standing Academy librarian. 

Mother Duncan was the first certified librarian in the columbia union conference.   Her credentials were so valued that she was sent to Blue M ountain  Academy to establish their library. She was a prolific reader, with a vast vocabulary. She was student focused and demanded excellence.  Some would say that she was the consummate educator.  During the 1960-61 school year, she served as the Interim Principal of the Academy.  Mother Duncan left the Academy to serve as the librarian for Columbia Union College (now known as Washington Adventist University).  She later returned to the Academy to finish her career as a librarian.

Billy Johnson, achieved many academic successes upon graduation from Pine Forge Academy including earning a PHD in Mathematics from Purdue  University and an MD from Florida State University.

SENIOR SPOTLIGHT 



Sierra Smith 

Meet Sierra Smith, Upward Bound Scholar and USM President

The University of Delaware Upward Bound Program selected Pine Forge Academy senior (Class of 2018) Sierra Smith for a pre-college campus summer institute. Upward Bound is a U.S. Department of Education initiative to support preparation for college entrance for students of color with high academic achievements and strong leadership skills. Upward Bound provides students with rigorous pre-college and college coursework, mentoring, cultural enrichment and college counseling during the summer institute.

Through the program, Smith affirmed her college and career aspirations. She attributes her Upward Bound experience to "changing my academic and social life for the better. The program is designed to enhance the skills I need to achieve in my future college and career experiences. I am now ready to implement what I learned on my high school campus."


Meet Lincoln Liburd, III, MITHS Scholar and Praise and Worship Leader

Each year Pine Forge Academy students apply and gain entry to Loma Linda University's Minority Introduction to the Health Sciences program (MITHS). MITHS is a challenging three-week summer program designed to introduce students to careers in the health sciences and to immerse students in a college campus experience. The selection for MITHS students can be very rigorous.

MITHS selected Pine Forge Academy senior (Class of 2018) Lincoln Liburd, III for summer session 2017. Liburd states that "MITHS exemplified the importance of academic excellence and helped me sharpen skills that I already developed at the illustrious Pine Forge Academy. MITHS also taught me new skills such as speed reading. Most importantly, MITHS allowed me to meet like-minded students who aspire to become great in whatever career field they pursue."
