Reasons for Restoration

"Former United States president Ronald Reagan has been quoted as saying, “I do not want to go back to the past; I want to go back to the past way of facing the future.” 

His counsel still resonates within me. There is something about reviewing the lessons of the past to prepare us to face the challenges of the future. What a glorious legacy of faith, courage, and ingenuity those noble early Mormon pioneers have left for us to build upon. My admiration for them deepens the longer I live."
-L. Tom Perry

Perry's observations enunciate one of the core reasons for restoring the Oneida Stake Academy. The Oneida Stake Academy Foundation is committed to this restoration in order to ensure that future generations can see, smell, touch, absorb and appreciate the determination, of those who built the academy, to make the world around them a better place for future generations. If one person is inspired to do the same in their circle of influence today, we will have accomplished a grand thing.
