How the principal sums up the class of 2013: “Gem State Adventist Academy was founded in 1918 and has been graduating seniors since 1921. While many students have graduated over the years, there is no question that the GSAA class of 2013 will be remembered for their strong leadership and positive influence they have demonstrated in their four years. Additionally, these seniors have potentially set the mark for future generations in the area of class fundraising and support for their school!”
