While summer break provides students and faculty a well deserved break, June and July were busy months for the GROWING Campaign Building Committee. Chaired by Bill Wittig (VL Alumni Parent), this group of six volunteers met frequently as the building project bids were released, submitted, reviewed, and then a final recommendation made.

Then, on July 31, 2018, a special meeting of the VL Board of Directors was convened. The purpose: to receive several reports surrounding the progress of the GROWING Campaign’s building expansion (including the Building Committee’s recommendation), and decide if/how to proceed. Following faith-filled and thoughtful discussion, the Board of Directors unanimously voted to accept the Building Committee’s contractor recommendation and move forward with the building portion of the GROWING Campaign – thanks be to God!

The Groundbreaking Ceremony has been set for Friday, September 14, 2018 at 2pm. More details are to come.

Following the meeting, Board Chairman Matt Princing (VL ’85) said, “I have been proud to serve Valley Lutheran as a member of the board, but never more than last night… I was very pleased that we gave the topic the importance and gravity it deserved. Our school is already a great place grounded in Christ where tomorrow’s leaders are nurtured in their faith; but our new facilities will significantly raise the bar on education in the Great Lakes Bay Region. God’s blessings to the continued success of the Growing Campaign and Valley Lutheran High School.”
