Oconomowoc Rotary honored OHS senior Korinne Spencer Monday. School staff Lauren Black and Carrie Schultz noted that Spencer had improved self-confidence and is on track to complete the IB career-related program with Biomedical Sciences. Staff said that Spencer “is not afraid to take risks,” and is most at home riding her Saddlebred horses. Rotary honors students throughout the year, providing funding for continuing education.
 
DIGITAL COMMUNICATIONS CLASS
Instructor Mike Krill (top) introduced part of his AP Seminar Digital Communications class (above) describing their school to workplace adventures and learning curves. The class now earns three college credits. Students described the course as “realistic, challenging and rigorous,” teaching professionalism, timeliness, social skills, courtesy and adherence to deadlines. “SDC creates the intersection between the classroom and the real world,” noted presenters. Projects include video segments on Lake Geneva tourism, downtown Oconomowoc promotion, Milwaukee County Zoo conservation strategies, Sobie’s Restaurant dining interviews, Ewald corvettes, leading TED Talks for Shorehaven seniors and other “amazing opportunities.” Email krillm@oasd.org to serve as a student mentor, offer your business for touring, or to serve as guest speaker.
