    We extend our sympathies to the Dantuma family on the loss of their son, Jonah Dantuma, (class of 2019) last weekend. Words cannot express the grief, loss, and sadness being felt by Jonah's family, our staff, and the greater VCS community. Jonah was a student who brought a smile to everyone he came into contact with. His love for life and living it to the fullest was contagious to those around him. Please be in prayer for his sister, VCHS Bible teacher, Karly Burkhardt. We pray for mercy and grace for the family as they grieve.
