OHS Earns Championship Title At Occupational Expo
OHS Mustangs

The students of Oakdale High School have once again left their mark on Stanislaus County Office of Education.

On Thursday, March 24 the OHS Occupational Olympics team placed first overall in the Occupational Olympics.

During the 31st Annual Stanislaus County Occupational Olympics and Career Exposition, Stanislaus County high schools participated in 21 competitive events. In addition to the competitive events, 50 business/industry representatives exhibited and spoke to students during the Career Expo.

“That makes a clean sweep for OHS Academic Decathlon and Occupational Olympics in the same year,” Superintendent of Schools Marc Malone stated in an e-mail correspondence sent to OJUSD Board Members. “It is safe to say the OJUSD is leading the way in making our kids College and Career ready.”

Students were also awarded in individual categories. Those students are: Automotive Technology - Hunter Mattos, First Place, Joshua Oliver, Second Place and Isaac Castanon, Third Place; Firefighter Candidate Training - Cori Barney, Second Place; Hairstyling - Jennifer Anaya, Third Place; Introduction to Business Applications - Jenna Ingles, First Place, Anne Homer, Second Place and Lauren Watson, Third Place; Medical Occupations - Paige Barton, First Place, Kaitlyn Mast Gruidl, Second Place and Luis Rojas, Third Place; Salad Preparation and Display - Claudia Vargas, First Place and Silvia Castro, Third Place and Video Game Design - Jonathan Byers, Second Place and Marcus Velasquez, Third Place.
