Campion English teacher, Erin Johnson, was chosen as the winner of the Noosa Full On Grants Contest, receiving $2000 to use creatively in her classroom. She was selected amongst the top 10 nominees as showing the “best example of bold, generous, ‘full-on’ efforts that go above and beyond in teaching” and a creative use of the grant funds.
Johnson was not aware of the contest until she was notified of her nomination. “I hadn’t even seen this competition before,” she commented.”My friend found this contest somewhere and filled out an entry for me. She texted me saying, ‘I’m nominating you for this award!’”
Later when asked how she felt about receiving the grant, she said, “It was the most exciting thing that’s happened to me. It made me feel more confident because teaching is a career where we don’t necessarily get a lot of praise. It felt nice to see how my work has paid off.”
Erin Johnson is a teacher who incorporates unique and creative ideas into her classroom everyday. “I really like literature to be as hands on as possible, so I try to take things out of the book and make it come alive. I want to make the curriculum applicable to the class, and I’m trying to find an awesome unit I can reuse every year, but it’s really just trying to see what works for the students. The world is always changing, so the classroom should always be changing too,” she elaborated.
Johnson mentioned her own high school English teacher was a big inspiration for her teaching methods and how she still draws from some of his ideas. She plans to use the $2000 grant money for interactive projectors for each of the staff to use and for premium versions of online education tools.

Head Dean of Women, Molly Santana has set aside time in her schedule as dean to lend her expertise in the classroom. With a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Master’s degree in Special Education, Santana is now the highly qualified teacher of Campion’s Academic Support and Pre-Algebra classes.
After Patricia Torres retired in the fall, Santana was willing to take on the classes because she missed teaching and recognized the need for academic support. “Students who struggle have a place in my heart, often those are the ones who fall through the cracks. Especially in our Adventist school system there should be no excuse for that to happen. There should be someone to take the time, and let them know that someone believes in them,” she stated.
In the past, Santana has worked for a program for adults with mental disabilities and in a classroom for autistic students at a middle school. Santana said, “I love that God created us to be all so different individually, I believe it pertains to our learning. I like to find the way that they learn, empower them to follow that way of learning.”
Her husband, Carlos has also officially joined Campion’s staff doing supervision and working part-time in the cafeteria preparing dinner while he is working towards a degree in theology online. Carlos explained that he is happy to be working with academy students and enjoys “making connections and getting to know everyone better.” He further commented, “I know what it’s like as a teen and can relate to them in certain ways. I also enjoy learning from students and I hope they can learn something from me as well.”

Levi Meszaros, husband of Chaplain Nancy Meszaros, has been officially hired as assistant chaplain to finish out this school year. Pastor Joe Martin retired from teaching Junior Bible this semester, so Chaplain Nancy took over those classes, giving her a full class schedule. Levi has been instrumental this whole year in assisting with music and the sound system for spiritual meetings, so it was natural for him to officially take on the role of assistant chaplain.
“I am glad that I can work at this school, and it’s a blessing for me that I can work with my wife,” Levi reflected. “My primary role is the behind-the-scenes work. For example, during the week of prayer, I was responsible for the speakers, sound, worship team, and slides. In the future, I would like to be able to help students’ spiritual growth with better and more uplifting programs.”

Campion Academy welcomes Nick Allen to the staff as Food Service Director. Allen has worked in food service for his entire career and has worked in the cafeterias of Andrews University, Mt. Vernon Academy, and Pines Springs Ranch camp in Southern California. “I’ve always loved being in the kitchen,” he says; “I grew up helping my mom and grandma and my first jobs in high school were in the kitchen. Over the years, I’ve seen that working in the kitchen is my passion, and I view it as my service to others, following the example of Christ of being a servant-leader.”
Allen grew up in Berrien Springs, Michigan where he attended Andrews Academy. Later, he earned a certificate in Vegetarian Culinary Arts at Atlantic Union College.
“When I saw the opportunity to be at Campion Academy,” he comments, “it reminded me of the good memories I made at Mt Vernon Academy. I enjoyed interacting with the students, especially with those who worked in the kitchen with me. I got to mentor them, and I missed that. This was an opportunity to be able to live, and work, and play with teenagers again, and I thought ‘I can’t pass this up.’”
Allen enjoys making a wide variety of dishes from around the world and experimenting in the kitchen. “I like learning what people like and what they don’t like and challenging myself to make new dishes based on that,” he says. “I also love doing pizza night, and I make my dough from scratch. One of my unique favorites is (vegetarian) barbecue-chicken and mac and cheese pizza. I also have experience with meeting needs of people who are vegan and gluten-free, and I’ve been experimenting with making my own vegan cheeses, and so far everyone has loved it.” He says he’s also looking forward to making authentic ethnic dishes and continuing Mrs. Fagan’s recent tradition of inviting our international students into the kitchen to help prepare foods from home.
In his free time, Allen and his family enjoy RC cars and trucks, hiking, and biking. They are looking forward to trying out backpacking and mountain biking in the Rocky Mountains. His wife Valerie has a passion for music and plays violin and viola. He and his wife, and their two children Orianna (10), and Tristan (7), will be moving to campus in mid July.

After 16 years of dedicated service and delicious food, Dawn Fagan is resigning as Food Service Director. Fagan has been known as an incredibly hard worker and has contributed to Campion in many ways. “Dawn is one of the hardest workers I have ever known,” commented Sue Helm. “If there is something that needs to be done, she is either volunteering or had already seen that it needed to be done, so she just did it. She definitely had the gift of seeing the BIG picture of what needed to be done.”
Fagan was always sure to provide a variety of options to meet each student’s individual dietary needs. “Dawn’s passion to provide three meals a day as well as all the extras such as homemade daily bread is inspiring,” said Honali Marin. “Her desire and goal was for every meal that was served to not only be nutritious but also to look and taste delicious. She tirelessly worked countless hours to go above and beyond to make every student’s and guest’s dining experience pleasant and enjoyable.”
Fagan has contributed to the creation of many Campion traditions, such as the church and school joint potlucks, and special meals hosted by the international students. Her menu has been diverse and introduced students and staff to unique recipes. Some favorites were sofrito stew, falafels, and perogies. Over the years at Campion, Dawn and her husband John Fagan have also been faithful class sponsors were sponsors of this year’s graduating senior class. In addition, Fagan was a volleyball coach for 18 years.
All three of her children graduated from Campion Academy. In February, Fagan’s first grandchild was born to her daughter Elizabeth who lives in Montana. Spurred by the desire to have more flexibility to spend time with her grandchild, Fagan decided that it was time for a change. While the Fagans haven’t finalized plans for the future, it will be sure to include extra time with family.
Fagan commented that she would miss working with the students at Campion Academy. While Fagan is known for running a strict and efficient kitchen, she noted the importance of showing grace. “I have learned many things working at Campion Academy, but one of the most important continues to be that everyone has a story (past). We don't always know what has shaped them, how they have gotten to where they are now, or what they are going through. So many students have come from such sadness, brokenness, and setbacks. Many times, we are only aware of some of the issues, and often not until after the student is gone. We must love everyone like Jesus showed us when He was on this earth and continues to do. I repeatedly pray that I neither do nor say anything that turns others away from God,” Fagan reflected.
When asked about a favorite memory from her time at Campion, she said, “I have so many memories, I cannot choose one. I have memories of good experiences (cooking, class parties, banquets, baking, coaching, serving, alumni weekends, parents' weekends, class trips, picnics, music festivals, games, helping students, school/church potlucks, special international meals, etc) and bad ones (reacting poorly, snapping at someone, allowing myself to be overly stressed, etc). But all the memories are good ones because they have helped me (hopefully) become a better person. Thank you Campion Academy, I love you!”
Thank you, Mrs. Fagan, for the incredible years of service you have given to Campion Academy. You will be greatly missed.
It is hard to imagine Campion Academy without Kathy Binder as a full-time staff member teaching English and Family Science (Home Economics), but after 30 years of dedicated service at Campion and 43 total years of teaching, her retirement is well-deserved.
Binder is a Northern Colorado native and graduated from Campion Academy in 1972. She studied at Union College and has been teaching in Adventist academies ever since her graduation in 1976. She began at Campion in 1989 by teaching Home Economics soon after her son was born. Over the years, she continued to add on more classes until she was full-time. In addition to teaching, Binder has been a Student Association sponsor for over 10 years, helping student leaders plan many fun activities throughout the years.
Binder’s care and concern for each student has been the basis of her career as a teacher. “The best thing about working at Campion has been getting to know all the students,” she explains. “I enjoy developing relationships with the students and also with my co-workers.” She continued by advising our current teachers hoping to follow in her footsteps to “take time to enjoy the people and students. Don’t get so wrapped up in the grading and planning that you don’t take time to enjoy the people.”
Her dedication to Campion Academy has been made obvious throughout the years, and along with her husband Kevin, she plans to continue to be an active member of the alumni association and will serve on the school board during retirement. She says she is proud to have been a part of Campion Academy: “We have a solid educational program to prepare students to make the next step in their education and future careers. Also, Campion staff and students are caring; people look out for each other and care about what is happening in each other’s lives. It is wonderful to see the students so connected to God spiritually,” she explained.
Life is coming full-circle for Binder; just as she started at Campion teaching one class and caring for her young son, she plans to teach one class of Independent Living next year while having more time to care for her aging parents.

I remember coming into Campion as a freshman confused at some of the events, and not only was Mrs. Binder willing to take our prayer requests, she was willing to answer and discuss any event that was coming up and show genuine excitement with and for us.

“I have enjoyed how Kathy has brought excellence to education. Her classes set the bar high. What makes her a great teacher is not only her knowledge, but her care and concern for students. She recognizes that education is preparing the student for the future and she would give as much of her time and life to help.” - Don Reeder
“Kathy is definitely a team player, always willing to help out where needed. She is very pleasant and positive, always wearing a smile, and goes the second mile to help her students be successful.” - Sherry Hay
“Kathy is delightful as a colleague. "Mercy" she has a great, positive personality.” - Dawn Fagan
“Kathy is the perfect mix of no-nonsense and compassion. She is resilient and demonstrates the ability to do what is needed though things may be difficult.

“Kathy has been fun to work with. She is patient with the students and I have always loved hearing her say "Mercy Child" when a kid is doing something ridiculous.” - Steve Eickmann

"While I only got to work with Kathy for one year, I'm certainly glad she was here as I began my career at Campion. Kathy served as a mentor to me as I jumped in to teaching the Senior English classes, and through her guidance I was able to navigate some of the initial challenges that I faced as a new teacher." - Jordan Dubini
“I've always appreciated working with Kathy because she never had anything negative to say--she was always upbeat and positive. She worked hard and was always willing to try out new things--which impressed me for someone who had been working there for 30 years! She's really going to be missed and I wish her the best on her next adventure.” - Lindsey Santana
Mrs. Eickmann stepped up for the position as Campion’s Interim Chaplain and Bible teacher even though she had never had a job like that before. Over the past year, Eickmann has planned assemblies, vespers, Sabbath School, Weeks of Prayer, and various activities for Campion staff and students. She also planned the annual Senior Survival. “Mrs. Eickmann did an amazing job making senior survival a very heartfelt experience for our class. I know that the planning must’ve been stressful, but the result was more than worthwhile,” says senior Naomi Boonstra. Mrs. Eickmann opened up her office to any student who needed advice or just someone to talk to. She made every student a priority and took the time to get to know everyone. Campion will greatly miss Eickmann and the impact she made on the entire campus.
“When Mrs. Eickmann called me over the summer to let me know that she was the new chaplain, I was so excited. I was excited that I would be working for such a caring, organized, and prayerful person. When we started the year I didn’t really know her that well, but after this year, I can truly call her my friend. Each morning, when I walked into her office, ready to work, she greeted me with a smile and hug. It has been amazing to work for her, and have her as a teacher and mentor. Every worship or talk she prepared for the students, was carefully planned out and matched the situation almost perfectly. Thank you Mrs. Eickmann for all you have done for Campion Academy this year, we have been truly blessed through your passion and creativity.” Madi Jordan, Student Chaplain
“My connection with Mrs. Eickmann has been developing for many years. Whenever she visited her kids during my LE summers, hosted us in her home on Friday nights, or became chaplain my senior year, she has always emulated Jesus’ love. She serves, prays for, connects with, and deeply loves every heart she is called to reach out to. Her empathy is healing while her fierce mama-bear character scares demons away. I am beyond grateful to have been part of her blazing trail of spreading God’s Word and I know she will catch many more souls on fire for Jesus, wherever she treads next.” Delanie Kamarad, senior
“Mrs. Eickmann has done an amazing job as a chaplain. She is so kind and real and all of her talks are very relatable as well as applicable. I have loved Bible class with her, and learned many lessons that will help me succeed in life.” Ashley Halvorson, senior
“Mrs. Eickmann has a heart of gold. Her loving and caring nature is shown to everyone. I am so thankful for her and the work she has put in to become the chaplain this year. I'll miss her encouraging words and the wonderful cookies she always made us!” Patricia Simamora, senior
“Mrs. Eickmann has brought such a happy and positive attitude to our campus. She is a mom away from home for us. Mrs. Eickmann is always there if you ever need a one-on-one conversation!” Ireland Anthony, junior
“I want to thank Mrs. Eickmann especially for being so supportive to each and every one of us seniors and other students through the past years and now. Mrs. Eickmann has been more than a teacher to us. I will miss having the fun Bible classes she planned and having all the students over in her house to spend time and eat good food! We appreciate her and we will greatly miss her.” Jeremy Matondo, senior
“Mrs. Eickmann has been an amazing chaplain. More than that, she’s been an incredible staff member. Always caring and loving, while being there to talk about God and life. She has been like a mom away from home for me and I am forever grateful for her ministry at Campion.” Ben Maxson, junior
“I want to thank Mrs. Eickmann for all she’s done this year. She’s been a big part of my first year at Campion and I am so glad to know an amazing woman like her. Thank you Mrs. Eickmann for always being willing to listen to some of my problems. I am really gonna miss her as a teacher and chaplain, but I know that God has a plan wherever she goes and whatever she does. Thank you for also dealing with our freshman class every morning, she is a strong woman for doing that. Mrs. Eickmann is very loved and appreciated by everyone around her.” Melody Mambo, freshman
“Mrs. Eickmann has been a huge blessing in my life. She has been there for me texting me at 4:00 in the morning telling me that everything will be okay. She always puts us first no matter what! I’ll miss her so much.” Sandra Marin, senior
“It was a really special opportunity to be able to work for my mom (Mrs. Eickmann)! It was the perfect way to finish off my high school career. I couldn't have asked for a better boss.” Nolan Eickmann, Student Chaplain
"Wendy Eickmann, my wife, is inspiring because she has a personal walk with God and has helped the students get to know God better this year." Steve Eickmann, staff member

About two weeks ago, Campion faculty members, Steve and Wendy Eickmann, began to feel run-down with headaches and fatigue. When their daughter Kelby began to show similar symptoms, she went to a testing center and was surprised to find out she was positive for COVID-19. They had already been following social distancing guidelines as much as possible, but after the results, they went into a stricter form of self-quarantine for the next two weeks.
While each member of the family showed varying symptoms, all of them seemed to only have had mild cases. Throughout this time, they continued working from home, both teaching and attending their online classes. After about a week of symptoms, they began feeling better and are now back to their normal healthy selves.
Wendy Eickmann says that she most worried about the possibility that she could have unknowingly passed the virus to someone else before she started feeling sick. “I like to manage things, but in this situation, I realized there was absolutely nothing I could do but recognize that God is in control. God is on His throne and He is sovereign,” she reflected. “Knowing that we have our Creator taking care of us brought us peace.”
We are thankful for God’s healing hand as the Eickmanns and others in our Campion community have quickly recovered from illness. Our Campion staff continues to pray especially for our students and their families that may be affected by the virus.

Campion Academy is excited to welcome Nancy Meszaros as the new chaplain for the upcoming school year. Nancy was born in California but calls Ohio home, which is where she lived most of her life. She attended Andrews University where she started off as majoring in Pre-Med and Religion. During her second year, through the influence of her friends and family, she felt God was calling her to be a teacher and chaplain. Meszaros reflected, “Everyone was telling me that I was called to be a teacher and chaplain. I love the Bible and explaining it to others. I decided to switch my major, and I have never looked back.”
Meszaros comes from Armona Union Academy in California where she also worked as a teacher and chaplain. After visiting Campion, Meszaros shared, “I love how the student body was excited, energetic, and friendly. I could feel excitement in the air for learning about God.”
When asked about her goals as chaplain for Campion Academy, Meszaros explained, “One goal I have is to become a cohesive unit. I want to make sure we are all able to work close and well together. I want to see us all grow as a campus. I am excited to create events that bring solidarity and enjoyment for the students.”
She is married to Levente Meszaros who grew up in Romania. He is a professional opera singer and shares her love for ministry. They both are looking forward to moving to Colorado. “It has always been a dream for my husband and I to move to Colorado. The mountains are beautiful and the air is fresh and clean. I am excited to enjoy going hiking,” she said.
Some things Meszaros loves include music, being with youth, puzzles, and escape rooms.
Campion Academy is looking forward to having Meszaros as a part of our campus. Principal Reeder shared, “I was impressed with Meszaros’ desire to be a servant to other people. She loves to teach young people through Bible class, and we are excited to have her join us at Campion.”

Nate Marin has announced he has accepted the position as principal at Central Valley Christian Academy in Modesto, California. Over the past 15 years at Campion Academy, Marin has taught Spanish, Geography, Personal Finance, and U.S. History, and he has served as a Student Association sponsor and Campion’s Guidance Counselor. His wife, Honali, also served in the cafeteria, assisted as an S.A. sponsor, and led small groups for students.
In a letter to students, the Marins shared, “My family and I are excited for the new opportunity and sad to be leaving all of you. It has been an honor and a privilege serving as your teacher here at Campion for the last 15 years. I have strived each year to improve and offer each of you the best education possible. I want to thank each one of you who have taken on the challenge of joining me in my classes. You have been and will continue to be more than my students; you are my friends.”
Marin’s forward thinking and passion for education has impacted both students and staff at Campion, and he and his family will be greatly missed. While we are sad to see them go, we also want to congratulate Marin as he moves into the administrative level in Modesto.
Several students and staff members shared the impact that the Marins had on their lives.
“I appreciated working with Nate Marin on so many levels—I admired his passion for the students, he cared that they did well academically, but more importantly that they left Campion knowing Jesus better. I admired his constant desire to improve as a teacher, always seeking ways to adjust and tweak his classes so they were better the next go around. I admired him as a colleague because he would seek me out, never shying away from asking for help but also willingly offering any help he could provide. He had my back, and that will be very missed. I wish him all the best wishes and prayers on this new chapter in his life.” Lindsey Santana, Teacher-Librarian
“Marin is not only a teacher to us, he’s a friend. In his classes, I learned so many lessons that I will continue to use my whole life. I learned about having a growth mindset and how to push through difficult situations and not give up. Most importantly, in Marin’s classes, I learned how to grow my relationship with God. I am so thankful to have had Marin for a teacher.” Ashley Halvorson
“Something I appreciated about Marin was that he always believed in me. In his classes, he expressed that he wanted me to do as much as I could without any of his help. Even then, he was always willing to help if I needed it. He had valuable life advice in every one of his classes. Outside the classroom, his door was always open. Some of the best memories I have of Campion are of playing strange card games with friends at Marin's house. To me, he was a teacher and a friend.” Erick Maldonado
“Marin has pushed me to take responsibility for who I am. He has challenged me academically and mostly how to look at my spirituality in a positive way. He will be greatly missed.” Jeremy Matondo
“Mr. Marin has not only been one the most influential teachers in my life, but also one of my closest friends. He has helped me learn and grow in my education and my spiritual life, and has taught me so much about working hard, challenging myself, and not giving up. I will miss him a lot next year, and am super excited for his new opportunity!” Grant Velbis
“Marin has been so much fun to have as a teacher. You can tell that he genuinely cares about his students in the way that he interacts with us and has fun with us. Not a month went by without Marin asking me why I’d never gone to his house for board games. He made Spanish one of the most spiritual classes I’ve taken. During weeks of prayer, he never gave us homework, he just gave us spiritual things to reflect on. Everything he does is so intentional. I’ve never had a teacher ask me my preferred learning style before Marin. Sorry for killing your praying mantis, Marin!” Naomi Boonstra
“Mr. Marin possesses an understanding of education that inspires me. He can see the big picture and every step to take to get to the big picture. He loves to collaborate with colleagues in planning and executing programs. But his most endearing quality is his care for each student. He has taken students under his wing to help them during their high school career and beyond. Mr. Marin has set a high bar for all of us.” Don Reeder, Principal
“Mrs. Marin shares her husband’s care and concern for each student. Her voluntary programs have been a great example of how to assist students in their journey. Her untiring support in the cafe will be missed as well. She is always willing to help Mrs. Fagan with food service for our campus.” Don Reeder, Principal
“Honali has been an invaluable asset to the cafeteria ministry, keeping students accountable and tasks running smoothly. Honali cares deeply for the students and their spiritual, emotional, and educational well-being (don't let her no-nonsense approach fool you). She has been a blessing to me, always willing to help where needed, and will be greatly missed.” Dawn Fagan, Food Services Director
