Mike Richards graduated from Oasis Academy College Prep in 2017. Upon graduating with both his high school diploma and Associate of Arts from Western Nevada College, Richards went on to earn his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Mathematics from the University of Nevada, Reno.
His favorite memories from being an Oasis Bighorn were being friends with all of his classmates while learning and laughing together.
When asked who was influential in his academic career and served as mentors, he credits both Mrs. Mortensen from Student Council and Counselor Mr. Lenon.
“Find a balance between having fun and taking high school seriously – you only live those four years once!” is Richards’ advice for future Oasis students.
Richards currently works as a Manufacturing Engineer at Innovative Drive Corporation in Reno.
