VCS Alumni Rock!
Venice Christian School helps create a love story …
Mr. & Mrs. Jacques and Victoria (French) May.
Jacques and Victoria “Tori” met at VCS when she was in 8th grade and he was in 10th grade. When they first met, Jacques thought Tori was a bit too much of a “Goody Two Shoes” for him, but Tori knew he was the one she would marry one day. She was right, and after keeping in touch and dating for a few years, Jacques knew she was exactly what he needed — they married Nov. 7, 2015.
Not only did they find lifelong love at VCS, but “VCS really set us up for success,” said Jacques. He played basketball on the VCS team and received a college basketball scholarship. Also, because of the excellent academic preparation at VCS, both he and Tori received academic scholarships to college which allowed them to be debt free from any college student loans. “Mrs. Foust really went a step beyond to make sure her students were prepared to be successful in college,” Tori said.
Tori earned an Associate Degree in Psychology from SCF. She’s now the Marketing Director at Tri-County Air, which recently received a 2019 Business of the Year Award from the Venice Area Chamber of Commerce. Jacques received his Associate Degree in Criminal Justice and is currently studying at UF for a degree in Forensic Criminology. He’s working as a Forensic Investigator for Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office, and also started a local marketing company with partner Ben Drumgool (also a VCS alumnus) called “Whiskey Barrel Marketing.”
Thank you for giving back to your community Jacques & Tori – we’re proud to have you in our VCS family!!
