A 40-year-old institution has come of age. There is the need to document the history, processes and outputs of the institution. This work is a short documentary on Archdeacon Dennis Junior Seminary (ADJS) Mbieri. It is a compilation of the history, foundational principles, roll call of students (admitted and graduated) and lessons learned from the school. There are also sections on spirituality, leadership, and entrepreneurship.
