77th Annual Homecoming: Always Welcome. Always Family

The theme for the 2019 Alumni Weekend was Always Welcome. Always Family. The theme came from the belief that no matter how many days you attended SAS or SVA, whether you graduated or not, no matter how long it has been since you last visited, nor whether you have stayed in contact with your former classmates or faculty... that you are considered Alumni and part of the Spanish-American Seminary and Sandia View Academy family! Romans 15:5-7 encourages us to live in harmony with one another, unify in one voice to glorify God, and to welcome one another as Christ our Lord welcomes us for the glory of God.

Huge thank you's to Pastor Michael Gibson, '12; Pastor Leslie Aragon, '66; and Pastor Eliab Quinones, '15 for their wonderful and inspirational messages! We were truly blessed!
