"Amazing. A place where I grew and flourished and was allowed to let my light shine bright. I will never forget Oakwood and will always be thankful for the independent, unapologetic, confident and free woman it helped me to become. I’m proud to be an Oakwoodian and can’t wait to give back to this school for the rest of my life, as it gave me so much! Being able to participate in every school play while I was there, being challenged in the classroom like I never had before, and being able to lead my community as clerk, showed me that passion lives inside of a person. Oakwood will always get five stars from me."
