Congratulations to Roma Lacuata. Roma R. Lacuata, our Director of Admissions, completed her Master’s Degree at Azusa Pacific University with a Master’s Recital on February 2, 2002. Roma was born into a musical family. Both parents and all five children played at least two instruments. She attended Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan on a Van Cliburn scholarship. After winning several competitions, she graduated with honors from the University of Wyoming, with a degree in piano performance. Besides having a studio of piano students, she has accompanied the local community theatre, high school choral concerts, played for the local Senior Centers and worked with several vocalists and instrumentalists.
Her recital program included some selections such as: Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue in d minor, S. 903 by Johann Sebastian Bach; Sonata in D, Hob. XVI/42; L. 56 by Franz Joseph Haydn; Suite gothique, Op. 25, for Organ by Leon Baellmann; and Sonata No. 1, Op. 22 by Alberto Ginastera.
She married Reuben Lacuata in Vienna, Austria, in 1996. Both Roma and Reuben are very interested in missions and they are working together in the Admissions Office of GCU. We are very pleased to have both of them and their talents.

Interest in Donetsk, Ukraine.
In his recent newsletter, Roger Thompson wrote:
“One of our goals this year is to activate Global Christian University in the Donetsk area. GCU is a partner with us in Donetsk. We set up the GCU Study Center last year. I believe that GCU can be a mighty force in teaching the gospel through Internet technology. This is a Bible-based university offering degrees in Bible, Business and Computers. World Christian Broadcasting has agreed to advertise GCU over the radio into Ukraine. We hope to bring many students to the Study Center….”
