Dr. Stephene Loremy
Principal of Dreamlight High School
Dr. Stephene Loremy is the founder, owner, and principal of Dreamlight High School, “Stephene Loremy Ministries, Inc.” author of “An Effective Sunday School in the Midst of 21st Century” and three other unpublished title. Life can’t be the same when you do not receive the correct education at an early age. Thus, Dr. Stephene Loremy has a message for everyone: he suggests that “everyone look for the proper education they may require to succeed in life.” According to Allison Academy’s research, “The reasons why many individuals around the world have been denied access to a quality education and why the knowledge they possess is not enough to successfully tackle the challenges of the 21st century can be economic, geographical, and social in nature.” It is important to understand that when students do not receive a proper education it can be a huge problem from generation to generation.
In his childhood, Stephene Loremy did not have the chance to start school at the required age; unfortunately, they did not have schools for his age-group in the area he was living. He had missed the entire kindergarten programs in his very early formative years. Because his hometown was too far from the school he was supposed to attend, maybe they did not have any schools for k-5 for his age in his community at that time. Fortunately, he started school at the age of 6. As a matter of fact, there were no virtual or face-to-face schools in his community that could support the early learning students. In the not-so-distant past, many people who grew up in the suburbs did not have ample opportunities to receive early education. There were certainly not many choices in the rural area in which he lived. Young Stephene had to walk by foot for 4 hours every day, Monday through Friday, along with his brother and sister, just to receive some kind of education, and this continued through his elementary, middle, and high school years.
After he graduated from high school, Stephene had the opportunity to move to the city nearby to continue his classical studies at Faith Baptist College of Mole Saint Nicolas, Haiti. His parents’ decision had been for all of their children to go to school from a very young age in order to learn “how to read and write correctly.” Not only that, but his parents were absolutely determined that their children would stand out as different in the community where they were living.
Furthermore, Dr. Loremy has always appreciated and acknowledged the grace of God for all the privileges that he has received from the Heavenly Father. Certainly, since he was a mere six-year-old child, Stephene embraced and understood education differently. In his mind, education is “a light that can enlighten everyone in every aspect of life.”
In addition, Stephene has persevered and has never given up on his goals to end illiteracy in the community where he is currently living and in so many other communities around the world. It can truly be said that his passion for education is very strong, and he is willing to share it with everyone.
In 1992, Stephene left Haiti. He entered the United States with two specific goals: to work and continue his education. In fact, it was not as easy for him as he thought, but he had a few cousins Merlicier and his wife Issamene Olizia and Jean Claude Firmin, that supported him for nearly a year. It took Stephene time to learn and master the English language, but it was worth it. In 1994, he decided to enter Valencia State College (formerly known as Valencia Community College). A few years later, he decided to go to a trade school – Mid Florida Tech in Orlando, where he studied Appliance and Refrigeration. From there, he started working on his profession; it showed him that education is really important.
In 2004, Stephene started a new career at Nova Southeastern University, where he earned a bachelor degree of business, a master degree in education, and a doctorate degree in higher education. Unfortunately, he did not complete his doctorate degree in higher education because of the death of his sponsor, who was his wife. She died of leukemia, a cancer of the body’s blood-forming tissues, including the bone marrow and the lymphatic system. Later, Stephene remarried, and his new wife is Venite Jean Louis. Both together have two children: Faith and Stephen Jr.
Afterwards, Dr. Loremy decided to embark on religious education from Cornerstone Christian University where he earned a Master degree of Arts and Theology and a Ph.D. in Pastoral Leadership. Indeed, he never wants to stop learning; recently, he just earned a doctorate degree in “Doctor of Ministry in Biblical Counseling” from Andersonville Theological Seminary. After all, he yearns to share his knowledge with people in his community and around the world. Continuously, Dr. Loremy values education with all his heart.
