The teachers have heavily impacted me and because of them I've developed a passion for learning.

    The College Board has recognized Mingo Valley Christian senior Sonée Harris for her excellent academic performance with both the National African American Recognition Award and the National Hispanic Recognition Award.

    An MVC student since 2nd grade, Sonée is highly regarded by both her peers and teachers, not only for her academic excellence but for her warmth and integrity. “Sonée brings an energy and a level of excellence to everything she does,” says Rachel Keeney, MVC high school history teacher. "She can get everyone laughing and having a good time, and she can just as easily lead very serious discussions. Any class she joins is better for having her in it.”

    Of her time at Mingo Valley, Sonée says, “MVC has challenged me in my school work, pushing me to my fullest academic potential. The teachers and staff have prepared me to carry my work ethic to college with me. My advice [to other students] is to always put your best forward in school, even if it’s not popular or no one recognizes you for it. Hard work always pays off.”

    Sonée is still deciding where she’ll attend college next year, but she knows she wants to major in marketing and communications.

  • Coronavirus: A Letter From Dr. Chitwood to MVC Parents

    Dear MVC moms and dads, 

    How real is the risk of getting Coronavirus? Of course, for your child’s safety, you are assessing that. You are thinking all the time about this virus situation. It is a worry, and that is very real. It’s not, for you as mom or dad, mainly a scientific calculation or a political argument or a financial market reaction, but a real concern about your child or, also, an elderly grandparent or other relative. The people you love are your concern, and that’s what I want to speak to for a moment.
