On April 2, Rio Lindo Adventist Academy held its 59th annual Alumni Homecoming. Surrounded by bright blue skies and a fresh spring breeze, alumni from near and far gathered to celebrate their memories and friendships formed at Rio. The church service featured a concert by Rio’s performing arts department and seven scholarships were awarded to deserving students totalling over $7,000. The theme of the service was Learn, Serve and Lead and several alumni shared their stories of pivotal lessons learned at their time as a student. After a filling lunch provided by the cafeteria, alumni met with their honor classes to share life updates. The class of 1971 had the largest turnout with 40 in attendance, and 10 more online through Zoom. Several former principals also gathered to meet with faculty and students including Vic Anderson, Dennis Plubel, and Albert Miller. One of the highlights of the weekend was the athletic field dedication, which was named after longtime history teacher and coach, Lynny Chapman. He was stunned to see the sign display his name “Chapman Field” and was moved as former students paid tribute to his influence and care in their lives. On Sunday, the athletic department capped off the weekend with the 4rd annual Rio Lindo Trail Run 5k/10k race as a fundraiser for the department. Students, staff, alumni and community members celebrated Rio’s natural beauty as they jogged through the variety of trails across the vast campus. 
 
“Alumni Homecoming truly gave us a glimpse of the ultimate reunion that we will all have one day in heaven,” said Principal Mekey Lepulu.

50 year alumni class smiles at camera

As an Alumni of Rio Lindo Adventist Academy, I found the scholastic experience and spiritual experience fabulous. I loved the faculty and my roommates my sophomore and junior years. I gained a spiritual experience with God and grew closer to Him. My teacher of Religion every year was magnificent. I had so much fun at Rio Lindo. It was so exciting and fulfilling developing as a young person for the rest of my life. I developed my independence, creativity, and all areas of my life which prepared me for the business world which is Entertainment Law. Media Industry and all area of Communications, Public Relations, Advertisement and Marketing arenas. Attending Rio Lindo Adventist Academy is where your adventure begins!
