-Press Release, Vance County Schools
VCS is so proud of the Class of 2020, as these 340 students begin their journey taking a variety of pathways – some are going straight into the workforce, many students are off to colleges and universities, while others have committed to serving in branches of the United States military. No matter where their journey takes them, VCS takes pride that each of them began their journey with Vance County Schools – the place we hope they always call home.

We are excited to announce that Vance County Schools Class of 2020 has a combined total of over 10 million dollars in scholarships and grants.
