You Built a Better Library!

2016 and 2017 Viper Nation Galas, and Fall Campaign donor directed gifts, raised a combined $73,000 to successfully transform the Vandegrift High School Library into a space far more productive for our students. To see the completed project, please visit Vandegrift High School. Simply check in at the front office and say you would like to see the new library. Once you arrive at the library, visit the central desk. If VHS Librarian Zandra Lopez is available, she is happy to show off the wonderful results! There, you will be able to view the new and beautiful Donor Wall, which hangs above the Scholar Lab. 

The image above is a PDF of our beautiful new Donor Wall.  It celebrates the families who contributed to the success of this project. The community, and all Vandegrift High School students could not be more grateful. Our new library truly is exceptional. It provides a convivial, flexible space for collaborative learning that students expect and need in today’s fast-paced world.

In addition, Viper Nation Education Foundation wishes to specially thank the following organizations for their support of this project:
American Constructors
Chase Flooring
Leander Independent School District

Project History:
The 2016 Gala’s Fund-a-Need introduced a new project to transform Vandegrift High School’s library into a Learning Commons; a 21st Century digital library, where students share space for information technology, collaboration, group study, classroom instruction and more. Gala attendees raised $35,000 that evening for the project. Phase I, the group study space, was completed over the 2016 summer with a generous donation from Chase Flooring.

Phase II of VNEF’s library renovation, the Scholar Lab, was completed by donors to the 2017 Gala Fund-A-Need, as well as several designated gifts to the 2016 Fall Campaign. For every $10 donated, $7 was dedicated to the $38,000 necessary to complete the Scholar Lab, including the equipment needed to outfit the space.
