Spangle, Wash., February 27, 2014  - The grand opening for the new Upper Columbia Academy cafeteria was held Monday, February 24 amid a winter storm that reminded many of what they wanted for Christmas.  

Students and staff alike enjoyed the ribbon cutting ceremony even though they were bombarded with snow flakes.

Those selected to cut the ribbon were Cliff Wallace, son of Pop Wallace whom the cafeteria is named after; Paul Hoover, president of Upper Columbia Conference; Weston Davis, building committee chair; John Winslow, principal of UCA and Omar Alfare, student body president.

Students have been enjoying their meals in the new dining hall since the move in on November 20. This new facility is appreciated by all as the gathering place for food and friendships.

Upper Columbia Academy is a co-educational Christian boarding and day Academy operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. It is located eighteen miles south of Spokane.
