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.
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
2005; 1995; 1985;
1975; 1965; 1955; 1945;
Classes ending in
2000; 1990; 1980;
1970; 1960; 1950;
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
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.

weeks. So until then, God bless you and
be with you.
