A Message from the principal to the class of 2014
Congratulations to the graduating Class of 2014!
Your graduation ceremony will soon mark a milestone in your life. Your high school journey has been one of hard work, dedication, and resiliency.
You will soon embark in a new journey in your life, one that may take you directly to college or perhaps directly into the workforce. It is the sincere hope of your teachers, support staff, and me; that we have prepared you well for your future endeavors.
I can safely state that Village Academy High School is a very special place that nurtured your mind and your spirit. Not only did you prepared yourself to be college and career ready and able, but you also took advantage of the multiple opportunities provided for you to engage in activities that build your leadership skills and personal growth. Along with the academic and personal attributes acquired during your four years at Village Academy High School, you also developed and fine-tuned your skillset in technology—a 21st Century skillset that will give you a competitive edge in your future career.
As your principal, each and every one of you is special to me. For you and I, entered the halls of Village Academy High School for the first time in 2010. In those four years, I have seen you grow; from nervous young men and women into mature and confident individuals who will forever be proud to be VAHS Knights!
The commencement ceremony will soon provide the opportunity to not only celebrate all of your academic accomplishments, but to also showcase achievements to your family, friends, school staff, and our community at large
The best is yet to come from each and every one of you. Move forward, rejoice in your successes, and always remember that you are a Village Academy High School Knight!
Victor F. Torres, Principal.

Student Of the Month
Hello Everyone. My name is Magan Vergara, a senior from Village Academy High School. I am very much honored to receive this award from the Pomona Rotary Club. I would like to thank the Pomona Rotary Club and the Village Academy staff for choosing me out of all of the students. I am also very thankful for my family, especially my mom and brother. Without my family and the school staff, I wouldn’t have had the best support system in my life to motivate me to achieve the best.
With much motivation and expectations, I first want to graduate high school. Being the oldest, I want to be a good role model by graduating from high school and then attending college. After the hard work and dedication in college, I want to pursue my career dream by becoming a Registered Nurse.
Once again, thank you for choosing me for this award and thank you for listening.
Hello everyone, my name is Jose Lemus and I am a student at Village Academy High School. First, I would like to thank the Pomona Rotary Club and the staff at Village Academy High School for giving me the privilege to be an awardee. I am extremely honored to be able to deliver my speech to such a wonderful crowd. I would also like to thank my mother and my teachers at VAHS for pushing me to my limits and for the constant support, and dedication they put into my education. Having someone push and motivate me every single day has made me a successful student in high school, for being a high school student isn’t easy. However, the constant advocacy that was given to me has truly inspired me never to give up on any goals I have set for myself. As a high school student, graduation and college are one’s first priority. In the future I see myself in a life of service either as a medical professional serving the less fortunate, or being part of the United States elite agency, the FBI. I will strive for success, taking advantage of any and every opportunity that falls before me. Despite the fact that life comes with disadvantages and sudden misfortunes, I will overcome any obstacle that can possibly sabotage my success because I believe that I can accomplish anything I set my mind to. With my hard work and determination, I am aspiring to inspire future generations into never giving up, to reach for their goals, to stay determined, to keep striving for the best. Again, I am extremely honored to have been chosen as student of the month, and for being able to share my thoughts, and my goals, thank you.
