As CVES continues to grow, more and more smiling faces are seen walking through hallways. Each person brings value to CVES and helps the organization m

In the bustling world of an educational entity like Champlain Valley Educational Services, the collaboration between divisions is evident. Behind the scenes of CVES’ successes is a dedicated team of purchasing clerks led by a purchasing agent, striving to ensure smooth operations and efficient resource management. As the organization grows and ventures into new territories, the challenges intensify, but so does the resolve to better serve the community.

One of the key groups driving CVES’ success is the purchasing team of Dee Akin, Stephanie Trombly and Jessica Lagree. They rely on collaboration amongst themselves, across CVES divisions and with vendors to ensure all purchases and transactions are properly completed.

Section VII’s inaugural girls flag football season was a tremendous success.

Eleven teams participated in the historic season that offered girls the opportunity to play an interscholastic sport that barely was a thought before quickly becoming a reality.

Section VII Executive Director Matt Walentuk was busy in the months of January and February once it was clear there was enough interest among local schools to create a schedule of games for the 2023 spring season. The catalyst for the first season stemmed from the New York Giants donating $30,000 to Section VII to be used to jumpstart participating schools’ flag football programs.
