Festival of Praise - Year Verses 2017

  The Vennard tradition of having a Year Verse and/or a Life Verse goes all the way back to our founder. Dr. Vennard would prayerfully select a verse for each graduating senior, and hand-write that verse on a card that she would present to the student. At right is one of these cards, written for Miss Ellis.

Dorothy Lanz shared this verse with us:
Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.~~John 15:16 KJV
(This verse was given to my husband, James Lanz, by Dr. Iva Vennard
  For several years President carried on the Year Verse tradition via email.
For the past 12 years, VC alumni have shared their verses here at the VCAA website.
