My memory accords my high school years, the distinction of being among the happiest phases of my life. I remember SMA in that light.
The academic standards were superb. Various extra-curricular opportunities were experienced in this dynamic campus where I served as one of its student leaders during my time.
I appreciated the chance it gave me to hone my humble musical skills by constant exposures to church programs and concert performances, being one of the original members and pianists of the Southern Minstrels in the early 80’s. These taught me solid learning foundation, instilled discipline and confidence which positively prepared me for my eventual medical career.
My gratitude goes to the dedicated teachers and mentors whom I have had the honor to learn from. I commend this Christian institution which remains to be awesome with its legacy in “character-building education” that SMA has provided me in the past and SPAC to continue to “nurture holistic excellence” for generations to come.
