oconDRIVEN Focus: Service Learning

What does Service Learning mean to you?
Service learning is the process of growing as a person by helping others.

What does this commitment look like?
Commitment looks like completing a goal to the fullest of your ability and then going beyond. Ensuring that you have the best possible impact on the world. In my life, service learning takes place all throughout the year. I love helping out others and making someones day a little bit brighter through my actions.

I have been a part of service-learning opportunities for as long as I can remember, from helping out in church, to different school activities, to what I am doing now. My family and friends also know how to support whether it be from their kind words or them reminding me to take time for myself, they are always looking out for me.

I hold myself accountable because I understand the impact that my actions have on others and the world, and I know that if I do not follow through I will be letting others down.

oconDRIVEN Focus: Athletics

What has athletics meant to you?
Running track and cross country has been a huge part of my high school experience. It’s been very exciting to be able to compete at the level I have, and to see that hard work my teammates and I have put in pay off. I’ve enjoyed getting to know my teammates over four seasons, and as an upperclassman becoming a team leader.

What does this commitment look like?
I spend around 30 hours a week for 48 weeks out of the year training for track and cross country. I have run track and cross country since fourth grade. The expectations are to run 6 days a week, year-round, as well as do some additional training (strength, core, etc.). My family has been my biggest support, as well as my coaches and teammates.

What other oconDRIVEN activities are you involved in?

  • Vice-President of National Business Honor Society
  • Member of the National Business Honor Society
  • Member of the Math Honor Society
  • IB Career Programme Participant


What's your proudest moment at OHS?
My proudest moment at OHS was last year when we qualified for State in cross country as a team for the first time in over 30 years.

What are your post-high school plans?
I plan to attend college and earn a degree in business. I will continue to run cross country and track in college.

What do you love about OHS?
One of my favorite things about OHS is the school spirit and support everyone shows for athletics
