academic prowess is one that most educators only see a few times in their career. He is wise
beyond his years and a true leader. He has always embraced every opportunity to challenge
himself both in and outside the classroom. This past school year Oskar participated in the
selective New Visions Engineering Program at the Otsego Area Occupational Center. Through

talents, as a three sport athlete, on our courts and fields. His participation in sports and many
student organizations at CV-S has enriched our school community. Oskar’s coaches have
described him as a respectful, quiet leader who is dedicated to his teammates. Oskar’s humble
and diligent nature make him someone his peers can look up to, and he is a leader in our school
There is no doubt that Oskar will continue to excel after he leaves CV-S and will
certainly do amazing things. Oskar plans to attend Williams College in the fall where he will
begin his post secondary studies.
