VCS Governing Board

Meetings: Valley Christian School Board meetings are held the third Tuesday of every month and are open to the public. If you would like to add an agenda item, please give at least one week advanced notice before the scheduled date of the meeting. 


Kevin Coons, Chairman


Gloria Butz

Gloria Butz served as a teacher at Valley Christian School for 19 years and then as principal of VCS for 12 years before her retirement in 2015. She is grateful for the quality education–both Biblically and academically–her own two children (now grown) received at VCS. Mrs. Butz enjoys scrapbooking, spending time with her family (including two precious grandsons), and traveling with her husband. She still continues to be involved with the school as a volunteer and substitute teacher.


Amanda Cyrier

Amanda has been a stay-at-home mother of three sweet kids for almost 10 years. She recently re-entered the workforce, working for her dad’s business (mostly from home). She has a professional background in management, customer service, and banking. Her passions are crafting, hospitality, and serving people. 

Amanda is thrilled at the impact a Godly school environment is having on her kids. She says the teachers and staff reinforce the values that she wants my kids to model throughout their lives, and to have that consistency is priceless. The most precious moments are when she hears of the kids praying with their teachers and their teachers praying for her kids.


Gayle Kroke


Teresa Lerew

Teresa is a wife, mother of four, and grandmother of eight. She enjoys being a "daughter of the King," talking with people, being creative, and having family around. In her  "retirement," she believes God has called her into being a spiritual director. As such, she walks alongside individuals in their walks with God, meeting on a regular basis to listen to them, having conversations about what He is doing and wanting to do in their lives.

Teresa was asked to be on the VCS Board as a representative for New Day Christian Fellowship. She brings to the Board many years of experience in Christian education as a retired elementary school educator.


Krista Parsons

Krista Parsons is a former VCS student and now a parent of two VCS students. She is a National Board Certified Teacher in science and has taught at a local public high school for 12 years. She has participated in School Improvement Planning Teams and Teacher Leadership Academies and felt called to bring her experience onto the VCS School Board. Krista is passionate about Christian education because she knows it had an invaluable impact on her own life, helping to establish her strong faith in God in her early years in school. She and her husband, who is also an educator, have chosen VCS for their own children because here they are loved, nurtured and encouranged to grow in faith and to see God at work in everything around them.
