In 1958, Dr. J. Lloyd Mason, his wife Alice, and their four children came to Monument Valley to build a hospital and a church. They also encouraged Christian education for the Navajo children and a Seventh Day Adventist Elementary School was started, which is still running today.

A very important member of our team is a Navajo young lady, Cara Luna, who is the principal and teacher of the 3rd -8th grades. She was raised in the area. She attended Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska, and received her education degree. She has completed a master’s degree in education. She has been teaching at the mission school for the past nine years.
She has an interest in helping young students in their learning process.
The children really like her and if she has to miss a day, they continually ask about her.
Her family is very friendly. They seem to always be full of smiles.
