Tune in every Monday for #MakeADifferenceMonday where we will feature a stakeholder, student, or fellow alumni answering "Five questions for B-C-S"

FINAL Senior week #3!

This week B-C-S is featuring, Senior, Oscar Garcia, Jr.!

1. Please tell the B-C-S Community a little about yourself.

  • My name is Oscar Garcia Jr. I am a senior at Oak Harbor High School attending Penta Career Center. I'm a member of the National Technical Honor Society, Penta's Ambassador Program, Business Professionals of America, and more. My interests include all aspects of the digital world, repairing electronics, and meeting new people with similar interests and views on the world.

2. What are your career plans and goals and how do you plan to achieve them?

  • For my career, I plan to pursue my passion for digital video production and all other aspects of this field. I hope that one day I may have a reputable video production business that others may depend on for quality work. To achieve these goals I will continue to grow my experience through the freelance work I do now. I film and edit weddings, promotional videos, and all sorts of events, as well as personal projects that I enjoy doing.

3. What is your favorite high school memory?

  • My favorite high school memory will have to be flying out to Dallas, Texas to compete in the BPA National Leadership Conference last week. My event was Digital Media Production and I ended up placing 2nd in the country overall. I'd say the best part of it would be getting to stay at the Gaylord Texan Resort and spending my last week of high school there with my instructor from Penta Career Center, Mr. Grycza.

4. What is the best advice you could give to underclassman?

  • My best advice for underclassmen would be to work hard towards their goals and to not let anyone make them do differently. In all honesty, I would advise any student to look into a career based school such as Penta Career Center. There you will learn much more technical skills that are taught in colleges and have far more real-world opportunities towards a career than you would get at a traditional high school. Even if you're unsure about what you want to do, you can go to a school like this to really get a hands-on experience to find what you're really passionate about. Despite all the negativity schools like Penta Career Center get, these are the best type of the schools' anyone could go to so they can get a huge head start on their career and be prepared for a real professional job right after high school.

5. What’s on your bucket list this summer?

  • On my bucket list this summer I plan to just grow my experience and knowledge in my career field. I hope to earn enough money so I may afford the necessary equipment needed to really get my business going and to just travel, creating memorable videos and digital work for clients to cherish.

RC Waters celebrated a circus-themed Right-To-Read Week!

Right-To-Read Week kicked off Monday with a circus assembly sponsored by our T.I.E. group. The company Cirque Amongus came and set up the "big top" in our gym. Volunteers worked with third grade students to train them to perform the different acts. Third graders donned costumes and make-up and performed a circus for the entire school to enjoy. We had tight-rope walkers, clowns, trapeze artists, magicians, and more. The students and staff reported that this was one of the best assemblies we've ever had. Third grade students will remember this day for years to come!

Thank you Reading Teachers, T.I.E., and parent volunteers for your hard work.

Ohio Department of Education selected Oak Harbor High School as a 2018 Purple Star designee

The Purple Star Award for military friendly schools recognizes schools that show a major commitment to serving students and families connected to our nation’s armed forces. Purple Star awardees receive a special Purple Starrecognition to display in their buildings. The Purple Star Advisory Board, formed by the Ohio departments of Education, Higher Education, Veterans Services and Adjutant General, helps decide eligibility.

A Purple Star school will receive the designation for two years. After two years, the school must reapply. The Purple Star emblem was selected because purple symbolizes support for military families.

There are 34,000 children in Ohio with one or more parents serving in the military. This includes the children of active duty, reserve and Ohio National Guard members. Some of these children will attend six to nine different schools throughout their K-12 educational experiences. In addition to changing schools often, a student also can be affected by a parent’s deployment. Schools can help students and families face these issues by connecting them with the resources they need.

Congratulations OHHS on this great award!
