Belinda Miller Memorial Scholarship

The Belinda Miller Memorial Scholarship testifies to the legacy and generosity of VCS grandparent, Belinda Miller.

Belinda passed in November 2018 at the age of 64. She is lovingly remembered by her husband of many years, Tim Miller, as well as her children, Heather (Michael) and Brandon (Brittni), as well as many grandchildren, including current VCS students as of the time of the Fund’s establishment.

Tim and Belinda shared a firm belief in Christ as their Savior and of the value of Christian education. After Belinda’s passing, Tim asked for the opportunity to begin an annual scholarship in Belinda’s name to bless a family who may otherwise not be able to attend VCS. The Belinda Miller Memorial Scholarship is the method the School has chosen to honor that request.
