Is LVW for you? Here is what recent LVW graduates have to say!
“Vanguard is different from other bands in the sense that we are doing much more than entertaining, we are witnessing our faith at the same time. Our mission statement is almost word for word Matthew 5:16 ‘Let your light shine before men that they may see your good deeds and praise your father in heaven.’ Just through our behavior and attitude we can share the gospel, and there's no doubt that after 40 years of existence Vanguard has reached millions of people through our performance.” Fai Haw, Lakeside Lutheran High School
“When I think of the meaning of being a family in Christ, wherever I am, I always think of Vanguard.” Jenna Keller, Fox Valley Lutheran High School
“I joined Vanguard to be closer to my family. In the end, Vanguard became my family. God has blessed me with new friendships and with memories. He has given me an experience that will guide me through my future.”
Liesl Ragner, Fox Valley Lutheran High School
“It has not been only repping sets and playing music all day long each week - we played games, went swimming, hiked sand dunes, explored the Cherry Festival, and best of all, we all bonded and made new friends who share a love for God. I learned so much this season from being part of this band, and I could not think of a better way to spend my summer. Mixing in marching band along with an opportunity to grow in my faith ensures that there is no place I would want to be. No matter how crazy the day was, as a band, we would take time to thank and praise our Heavenly Father for all the blessings of the day and week.” Angelica Ramsey, Mosinee High School.

It is the desire of the Board of Directors of Lutheran Vanguard of Wisconsin (LVW) that any student who truly wants to participate not be denied membership because of financial hardship. The Board also recognizes the fact that, although the cost may be high for a student to meet, some prioritizing and choices have to be made on the part of the individual and his or her family. Therefore, financial assistance may be available to students who demonstrate a circumstance that makes it difficult, if not impossible, to pay the entire fee for the upcoming summer.
For example, FVL students are eligible for a grant of between $100 and $200 (or more) from the FVL Music Associates. This form can be obtained from Mr. Neujahr at FVL. Other schools may also offer similar grants or scholarships. Please check with your school's director to see if additional funds are available.
If there are special circumstances which may make it difficult to pay your fees in a timely manner, please contact James Neujahr, LVW Executive Director, to work out an agreeable plan.
