Grace Christian Academy student leaders recently participated in the Challenge Masters Program, which provides training in team building efficacy. The workshop was conducted by Division of Public Health’s Becky Robles and NMPASI project specialist Greg Borja, and program manager Tom Thornburgh.
“This program provides invaluable opportunities for team building and understanding the importance and effectiveness of working together,” said GCA principal Beth Nunez.
Mafnas felt humbled at having to speak at a campus that played a significant role in her life. “The faculty and staff of GCA contribute so much to the students and to this community, and I will always be appreciative of the opportunities they give me to speak to their students,” she said.
As a woman leader on the islands, Camacho urged the students to serve with purpose and honesty.
“…I couldn’t help but remember when I used to sit in their exact seats amongst my peers while listening to speakers come from different walks of life thinking what would be my calling in this life God has blessed me with,” Camacho said. “Sharing the importance of ‘servant leadership’ moved me with hope I see in these students as I challenged each one of them to stand up for what is right and be the catalyst for positive change in this community we share.”
