A huge part of senior Stacie Bogdanowicz’s life has been agriculture. The passion for the subject has been fostered through her youth involvement with Churchill County 4-H as well as during her high school career.
“My favorite class would have to be my Ag Class because it was always a good time and agriculture is a huge part of my life and it always has been,” said Bogdanowicz.
“I have an enormous amount of appreciation for all of my teachers but I would like to thank Ms. Jackie Bogdanowicz because if it wasn't for her I probably wouldn't be at Oasis Academy getting a great education and being with some of the best friends I've ever had.”
That transition from Churchill County High School to Oasis is a memorable moment for Bogdanowicz. “My favorite memory from Oasis is probably from my Sophomore year when I switched from CCHS. All of the students as well as the staff were incredibly welcoming and they made me feel at home.”
Along with FFA Bogdanowicz has been an active participant in Bighorn Athletics including playing volleyball, lacrosse, and basketball. She is also the Senior Class President and the Oasis Chapter FFA President.
“I’d also like to thank Mr. Andy Lenon and all of my coaches. Mr. Lenon has always taken an active role in my education. He is very supportive of my academic and extracurricular activities. He always motivates me to achieve higher goals. My coaches have taught me so much both on and off the field/court.,” added Bodanowicz.
Bogdanowicz will graduate in May with her High School Diploma as well as her Associate of Arts from Western Nevada College. She plans to attend the University of Nevada, Reno to study Kinesiology with the goal of becoming a physical therapist.
“My advice to future students is to have as much fun as you can in high school because it really does go faster than you think,” finished Bogdanowicz.
