“If you look at where Southern is today compared to where it was 10 years ago, and if you take a look at where it could be 10 years from now, raising the 50 million dollars is exactly what this organization needs to do to continue to attract and promote Adventist Christian education.” – Terry Shaw, ’84, President and CEO for Adventist Health System
