We are pleased to announce that VCS has hired a part-time Development Assistant to join the Department of Advancement. Savaya Hofsink will take on this role, focusing on areas such as community relations & events, fundraising and marketing. Savaya has many connection to Vernon and to VCS, and we are very excited about the talents and passions that she will bring to our staff team. Savaya will begin this position in January, 2018, and we look forward to her and her family becoming a part of our school community.
Below are a few words of introduction from Savaya:
“I feel honoured and excited to be joining the staff at Vernon Christian School. Christ is the centre of my life, and I believe he should be the centre of education as well. It is truly a privilege to be a part of a school where staff and students pray for each other before class begins!
My husband, Alan and our 2 daughters, Clarissa, 18 and Kaitlyn,15 are excited for this new adventure. We can’t wait to be part of this community, to make friends and set roots.
For the past 10 years I have been working at an Independent Christian school in Alberta, where I have used my spiritual gifts of encouragement and leadership to help students grow into who God has called them to be. I look forward to continuing to support students and families in that role here at VCS. My prayer is that our kids know they are never too young to be used by God.”
