“King Peggy” Takes Washington Adventist University Students on Extraordinary Journey

Story by Donna Bigler

King Amuah Afenyi VI, also known as King Peggy, recently visited the Washington Adventist University campus in Takoma Park, Md. to speak with students about her extraordinary journey from being an American sec- retary to King of Otuam, Ghana, a small fishing village of 7,000 people.

Over the summer, first-year students are required to read her book King Peggy: An American Secretary, Her Royal Destiny, and the Inspiring Story of How She Changed an African Village. The First Year Experience, a program designed to help first-year students adjust to college life, also requires students to visit the Ghanaian Embassy and includes a trip to Ghana during spring break.
