On Friday, January 25, 2019, Mission Advancement will host an evening event at a donor’s home in the Pacific Palisades. Donors Linda and Jim Scilaggi were kind enough to open up their home and to invite their friends to a “friendrasing” event for Verbum Dei High School.
Dr. Brandi Odom Lucas, Chief Academic Officer, and Fr. Stephen Privett, SJ, our newest president of the Verbum Dei community, are to attend the event, to build relations with the guests, and provide information about Verb’s mission.
“Dr. Odom usually doesn’t go to these events,” Andrade said. “It will be great to have her there.”
Junior Deonte Harrison and senior Christian Aguilar will speak to the attendees of their experience at Verbum Dei. They will introduce the school and its mission from their perspectives.
“When Mrs. Andrade told me about the event,” said Aguilar. “I was eager to go – knowing that this is a great opportunity for Verbum Dei.”
At Verbum Dei High School, the students and faculty appreciate the generous donations of benefactors. The Mission Advancement team, consisting of Paul Hosch, Vice President of Advancement, Stephanie Andrade, Mission Advancement Associate, and Mission Advancement Assistants Michelle Cordova and Annie Levine, promote VDHS and provide benefactors myriad programs to financially support the school’s mission.
