Both graduates of New Smyrna Beach High School. Jane went on to become an elementary teacher in the Volusia County School system for many years. Upon Vermelle's urging, Jane and Vermelle started CAPS with their own money in 1995.
Jane said, " I saw many good children foundering after High School. They were the ones who did not have the money, scholarships or family financial support to continue their education.
These were good kids - my kids - who deserved a break. So why not, we thought, help them pay for their first year at D.B.C.C, (now Daytona State College), or any other accredited school of higher learning, to get started."
Jane and Vermelle's original, simple and heartfelt, idea, has caught the attention of alumni and community residents alike.
The NSB CAPS board of directors is made up of leading citizens from the New Smyrna Beach area. Each volunteer member of the board is committed to helping continue the work of Jane Chapman Gould and Vermelle Chapman, enriching the lives of students graduating from New Smyrna beach High School.
CAPS is looking for members who wish to help make a difference in our community. We have many ways in which you can volunteer and make a difference in the lives of others.
