HOW TO HELP
Gifts, large or small, make all the difference
Join the combined generosity of hundreds of individuals and civic organizations that have been responsible for:
- Funds for scholarships. In 2014, we awarded $15,100.00 in scholarships, bringing the total awarded scholarships to $177,450.00 since 1998.
- Facilities improvements. Through recent and past contributions, V-S students and patrons enjoy excellent facilities. Superb athletic facilities have been provided through family, booster club, and individual financial and in-kind contributions. The Animal Learning Lab provides a classroom and lab setting for our students in the Agriculture program.
- A $14 million high school was made possible in part by a donation of 38 acres of land and broad community support.
- Funding field trips that give students educational experiences away from their regular school environment.
