Oasis has grown a lot since Senior Hunter Arends started at the school in 2014 in fifth grade. Arends recognizes how he has grown and learned with the school and the impact the school and its programs have made in his life.
This includes through the Future Farmers of America program (FFA) led by teacher Ms. Jackie Bogdanowicz. “I’d like to thank Ms. B for being an amazing Ag teacher and helping me whenever I needed it” says Arends. “ My favorite class was FFA because it has always been fun and Ms. B always tried to keep it interesting, and teach us something, even during quarantine.”
Besides succeeding both in the classroom, he will be receiving both his High School Diploma and Associates of Science Degree this May, he has participated in a variety of extracurricular activities. This includes cross country, archery, golf, and student council.
His favorite memory of participating in these groups is the annual Student Leadership retreat to Disneyland through Student Council.
Arends has valuable advice for students, “Get your homework done a day before it’s due, because sometimes things don’t go as planned.”
Upon graduating from Oasis and Western Nevada College, he will attend the University of Nevada, Reno and study electrical engineering.
