ANNOUNCING NEW VCA STAFF
Mrs. Missy Jenkins has been serving as our Administrative Business Officer. We are so blessed to have secured her services. Mrs. Jenkins brings significant Business leadership experience to Veritas. Many of you have served with her as she has volunteered many years in many roles at Veritas. She has been a blessing to the Veritas community as a parent volunteer and now she joins us as a member of our Administration.

Mrs. Marsha Justice brings amazing experience and superlative qualifications to the PT Interim role of Human Resources Manager. She will be working mostly on a remote basis for the current time. The bulk of the HR office issues have been set for this year. Mrs. Justice brings both advanced education and substantive HR experience from organizations more diverse than our own. She will be bringing some important modifications as we grow as a Classical Christian school.

Mr. Lee Burgess, due to the substantial restrictions, Covid related, regarding athletics I have secured the services to function as PT Interim AD. Mr. Burgess brings impressive AD experience to our school, including on the collegiate level. He takes over a growing program. All schedules for this school year have already been set. Mr. Burgess will direct our athletics on the current upward trajectory. We are excited to see our programs expand with a forward moving future vision. Mr. Jennings will continue to serve as Athletics Coordinator and is readily accessible. 

Mrs. Buffey Smith will continue to serve faithfully in the manner she has for the past few years as Recruitment and Retention officer and Grammar school Assistant. Her work in this capacity has been superlative and our excellent enrollment numbers, despite the times, is most encouraging and evidence of her outstanding service. Mrs. Smith’s work responsibilities will shift to naturally include some Registrar duties that fit with recruiting, admissions, and retention. Her new title will be - Registrar and Administrative Assistant.
We wanted to recognize the Grammar and Logic students who were given awards at the end of last school year! Please join us in congratulating them!
