At Our Last Meeting“
Rising Above - OHS Senior Amanda Wangerin was honored with the Rotary Scholarship Award Monday. Wangerin plans to pursue a degree in nursing. OHS counselor Todd Irvine said Wangerin had survived “horrific” circumstances, lives independently, worked extra jobs, has often been homeless and has continued to follow a rigorous academic plan in spite of external challenges. “This student refuses to let life’s obstacles get in her way.” Wangerin is committed to regular school attendance, competitive grades and a positive attitude, in spite of facing nearly insurmountable hurdles. Oconomowoc Rotary awards students who have overcome obstacles in their personal or academic pursuits. Students use the funds toward continuing education.
