Corey McMahon – VCS Class of 2012
From England to VCS … Corey McMahon calls VCS his “home away from home.”
When his family moved 7-yr-old Corey from England to Florida, they put him in school at VCS. Not having any other family or friends in FL, Corey grew a family right here at VCS. “Venice Christian made me who I am today,” he said. Teachers were mentors, and Corey made lifelong connections.
He is especially grateful for the important character building that happens on a daily basis at VCS. “I was taught the right morals and ethics to get me through challenging times. Are we serving God in the correct manor – for His glory?”
After graduation from VCS in 2012, Corey went on to USF Tampa where he studied Business Management. He is currently enrolled at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) in Orlando where he’s studying law. His goal after passing the Florida Bar is to practice some kind of public interest or real estate law. “The excellent writing and reading education I received at VCS have critically impacted my ability in law school – from the books I read, to outlining and research skills.” Corey also learned while attending VCS, that time alone with God is important. It’s a habit that he carried with him through college. “If there’s a challenge I don’t understand – I get away, regroup and spend time with God.” Corey credits VCS with giving him the daily building blocks he needed to lay the foundation of his faith. A dual-citizen, Corey will always refer to VCS as his “home away from home.”
