  • VES Spring Musical—Seussical—a Big Success

    The best place to watch a show is from the wings: behind the scenes, from the sides of the stage, in the dressing room, or from the light box where you can feel a different and authentic view of a performance. In the audience, a musical or play can be just as an incredible, but being behind the scenes, well, there’s just nothing quite like it.

  • Placing the Box Back in the Cornerstone

    King Center Cornerstone Box Filled with Current VES Memorabilia for Future Generations to Discover

    Earlier this spring, our construction firm unearthed a memorabilia box that had been installed in the original cornerstone of the William King Field House. The copper box has lived concealed behind bricks since October 1949! When we removed the top, we were treated to a hand-penned letter by Headmaster George L. Barton, Jr., Ph.D., who served from 1943 – 1957, a copy of the October 1949 Meteor—the student newspaper—that highlights the newly finished Field House, and some U.S. currency—a few pennies, nickels, a dime and a quarter. Click through to see what we have placed in our April 2016 time capsule to be placed back in the King Center walls on Friday.
