Parents, Students, and Community;

I am pleased to inform you that we successfully concluded the search for a new principal and would like to enthusiastically introduce Erik Borges as the next Principal, of Walla Walla Valley Academy, effective July 1, 2019.

Erik has served as Principal and Athletic Director at Highland View Academy in Hagerstown Maryland since 2016. The eight years prior, he was Principal and Athletic Director at Armona Union Academy in Armona California. Erik earned his B.S. in Elementary Education with minors in Physical Education and Special Education and holds a Master’s Degree (as of June 2019) in Business Administration from WGU.

We are very excited for Erik to join our community and are confident he will build upon the strengths of our school. Through his many years in Adventist education, as a Teacher, Athletic Director, Coach, and Principal. He has served on the Central California Conference Board of Education and the Pacific Union Curriculum Committee.
 
 We are grateful to Brian Harris, our Principal for seven years of leadership. His dedicated service to our students and families and his unwavering commitment to our mission has truly made an impact on hundreds of students, alumni, and teachers.
 
 The search committee represented a cross-section of our community including teachers, administrators, parents, board members, and conference representatives. WWVA is incredibly grateful to the committee, who invested so much time, effort, reflection, and commitment to this process over the last 3 months.
 
 Please join us in warmly welcoming Erik, his wife Kirsten, and their children to Walla Walla Valley Academy and to our community.

Sincerely,
