Agape Hammond-Jaklich recently joined the Mile High Academy team as Director of Marketing. We’ve already seen such growth and possibility in the last few years here at MHA we are excited to see Agape working with us to reach even grander goals without losing sight of our core mission and values. We asked her to answer a couple questions just to find out her own thoughts on where she sees MHA going and why she is here.
What are your main responsibilities at Mile High Adventist Academy?
“I see myself as the person who works behind the scenes to make sure everything looks good out front. That can mean anything from technology to just making sure we are all wearing our friendly faces every day.”
What have been your experiences in Adventist Christian education?
“My father was the first in our family to find Adventist education. When it came time for me to go to school my parents found the local Adventist elementary and enrolled me. I followed that through to college, graduating from Pacific Union College in Angwin, CA. It is a legacy that can be passed on to my children.”
Why do you think an Adventist Christian education is important for families to consider?
“I believe the importance is in meeting all the needs of the individual. Here at MHA you will get the excellent Academics, the impressive Extra Curricular Activities and the touching Community feel that is important in a good school. However, you will also get Christ every day. In the way you are treated, in the teaching, in the worships, your needs are met on all counts.”
What are your personal goals for Mile High Academy?
“I would love for everyone out there to experience everything that is happening in here. That would eliminate all doubt in people’s minds that this is the place to send your children, this is the place where new things are happening, where Academics and Values meet to form a whole learning culture. I want people to believe in the power of Adventist Christian education to change our neighborhoods, our communities, our world.”
