Platte Valley Academy Homecoming 2015


As soon as the date for 2016 is final this information will be updated.

God is nicer than Freida

by Bob Stauffer class of 1962

I attended Platte Valley Academy all four years of high school. I worked on the dairy all of those years. Milking time was 4:30 to 6:30 then breakfast at 7AM. Occasionally we had equipment malfunction (it was usually the alarm clock) and we would be late for breakfast. Frieda’s house was near the cafeteria. She would see us walking dejectedly away and would open the window and call, “You boys get ready for school then more ..

Dear PVA Alumni and Friends of PVA,


Spring is just around the corner. Among other delights, it is the season that calls us to reunite with our PVA friends to visit, laugh and share stories of our time together at Platte Valley Academy.


This year PVA Alumni – 2015 is April 24 and 25, hosted by College View Academy in Lincoln, NE. The theme for the weekend is Building Forward – Honoring the Past. Stan and Angela Hardt, former staff members at PVA, will be our guest speakers. Stan and Angie currently reside in Lincoln, NE, where they minister to the students of Union College.


Our Honor Classes for Alumni-2015 will be those classes ending in ‘5’ or ‘0’.  Specifically --

·       Classes ending in ‘5’:

2015;  2005;  1995;  1985;  1975;  1965;  1955; 1945;


·       Classes ending in ‘0’:

2010;  2000;  1990;  1980;  1970;  1960;  1950;  1940


Whenever I reflect on this special countdown of classes, I always wonder where the years have gone! And then I think forward – how blessed we are to be part of PVA’s family and God’s family.  How fortunate we are to be alumni of PVA.  And further, because of God’s mercy, to be counted as His children living in the hope of Christ’s second coming is amazing beyond words.


Sadly, this year a pillar of our PVA family will be missing. I’m sure you know that our dear Janis Bascom, 86, passed to her rest, Wednesday, January 20, 2015. Her memorial service was held at the SDA church in Kearney on Sabbath, January 24, 2015. As Miss Bascom’s health deteriorated, her final weeks became increasingly difficult. Now she sleeps in Jesus, awaiting His trumpet call on resurrection morning. This brings to mind the most precious promise for us all – life eternal. With the passing of Miss Bascom, a remarkable era has ended for PVA.


A basic schedule of events appears below. Be sure to continue following this website to keep informed of further announcements and information regarding PVA Alumni- 2015.


Please make plans to join us April 24 and 25. We will be truly honored to have you there. It’s so fun to see all of you at these alumni events, and we look forward to meeting up with you again in a few short weeks.  So until then, God bless you and be with you.
