Special Preview of the APAC

During the week of May 22nd, WCS will be hosting several events as part of a Special Preview of the new Athletics & Performing Arts Center (APAC). In addition to the Chamber, Band, and Choral Concerts, we will have two Alumni Events. On Tuesday, May 23, alumni are invited to play in a volleyball game at 6:00 p.m. On Thursday, May 25, alumni are invited to play in a basketball game at 7:00 p.m. We're looking forward to seeing our past WCS athletes compete in this new gym! Please contact Adam Meyer, Director of Advancement, for more information.
Adam Meyer, Director of Advancement, has hosted many construction updates over Saturday morning coffee. The top photo shows the group at our most recent update receiving a tour of the new spaces. 

Before the gym floor was installed, athletes and coaches were allowed to come and write a favorite scripture on the concrete. Owen Cooper ('08), who came by to operate a drone and help us capture the moment, included his favorite scripture. Sarah (Plumb) Bowler ('95), WCS Elementary Principal, also shared her favorite scripture.
Andrew Baker ('16) received a special tour from Mary Dykstra of the new Performing Arts Center.

In Sympathy
We offer our sympathies to the family of James Vosteen (Class of 1972) who passed away on March 4, 2017. He was born November 23, 1954 in Southampton, NY to James Peter Vosteen and Winifred (Ham) Vosteen and had been living in Jacksonville, FL. Jim was a highly regarded computer programmer/analyst. The Jax Jaguars, CSX, and Home Depot are a few of the many companies that were impacted by his expertise. He began his computer career as a 2nd Lieutenant in the US Air Force at Langley AFB, Hampton, VA. Jim was a longtime member of the Baymeadows Community Church serving in many capacities including treasurer, deacon and elder. Jim's hobbies included ice hockey, Ham Radio, remote control planes, photography, computer games and he was an avid marksmen. 

Jim is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 42 years; Gertrude (Vanden Akker) Vosteen (WCS Class of 1972); daughter Amy Ruth Frields (husband, Lawrence); sons, Brian James Vosteen (wife, Kristin) and Nathan Peter Vosteen; brothers, John Osborne Vosteen (wife, Clara) and David Cooke Vosteen; sister, Anne Sterling VanderVeen (husband, Harvey); four grandchildren Madeline, Eleanor, Jackson and Alyson, and many extended family members, church family, and friends. Mr. Vosteen was preceded in death by his parents.
