Chan Jang '18

Goyang City, Republic of Korea

I am a member of the soccer and baseball teams and a member of the Honor Council. I love to try new activities at VES, including joining the new table tennis team. I really enjoy creating videos of all that happens around school, whether it’s for marketing the school or promoting fun activities for students.

I chose VES because it really feels like a family. Everyone knows and cares about each other, is very comfortable with each other, and we support and encourage each other to try new things. It’s easy to meet new people or sit with someone new at lunch because everyone is so welcoming. The entire VES community is so warm and engaging, I always try to motivate students to relax and dive in, rather than staying in their rooms. In my senior year, I'm looking forward to continuing my journey toward full stature.


Tayloe Hunter '18

Tazewell, Virginia

I followed in the footsteps of my three older siblings in coming to VES. I live on Perkins dorm and greatly enjoy being involved in various activities and organizations. I am Head Counselor at VES and a member of the Student Council, Global Ambassadors and DIG bible study. I played a leading role in starting the new debate team. I run on the varsity cross country team and play basketball. In addition, I enjoy playing violin, horseback riding and skiing. My favorite thing about VES is the close relationships I’m able to build with the students and faculty; I truly feel like VES is one big family! I love being a Bishop!

Woods Cook '18

Lynchburg, Virginia

If you come to VES, you will definitely be involved in this community! I am a member of the VES football, lacrosse and basketball teams; a member of the business club; a Big Sib to underclassmen and a senior class representative on Student Council. I also serve on the Honor Council. Academically, my favorite classes at VES are Analysis and Physics. Who wouldn’t want to experiment with paper airplanes in physics to learn about force and motion? Real-life, hands-on learning is the best.

My favorite thing about VES is having the opportunity to meet people from around the world and the sense of community you feel the minute you visit campus. I chose VES because it challenges me academically, socially and athletically; provides endless opportunities; and you can create long-lasting connections with students, teachers and coaches.
