Bighorn News: Senior Spotlight: Edward Morrow

Government students created magazine covers in their class.

FFA was a highlight of Edward Morrow’s career at Oasis Academy. He still remembers his freshman year of Ag Day.
“For the first farm day, I was able to bring a truck and trailer with hay bales and a dirt bike to show the students. It was a really fun experience with FFA,” Morrow said.
Morrow has been exceptionally active in student activities. He is currently Student Body President and Vice President of the FFA. Service was a big part of his high school career.
“I was involved in the Student Council for five years and FFA for four years. In both groups, I held several different positions. I started the Car Club in my freshman year and was part of the Honor Society,” Morrow said.
“Eddie is a go-getter! He even led the restoration of an old truck for the automobile club, which brought the club a handsome profit at our annual Future Fest dinner,” added manager Rochelle Tisdale.
“Student activities have been the biggest part of school for me. Classes were one thing, but I really enjoyed being able to be part of the school, not just as a student. I realized that these clubs and organizations could teach me more about the real world and make me a more balanced person. I wanted to be as involved as possible. »
As one of Oasis’ first students, Morrow saw the school grow.
“I started Oasis in 2011 when it opened. I remember almost all the changes and upgrades over the years,” he said. ‘to have such caring teachers who showed they cared about me and helped me get to where I am today.”
This includes gratitude to two special people who helped him along the way.
“I would like to warmly thank Ms. Lisa Swan from the Student Council and Ms. Jackie Bogdanowicz from the FFA for all the opportunities they have given me. I am grateful for the experiences I was able to participate in thanks to them,” he added.
Morrow will graduate in May from advanced high school and associate’s degree in commerce from Western Nevada College. He will then continue his journey towards a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Nevada, Reno. Morrow also wants to get his commercial driver’s license to work in the trucking industry.

High school students create magazine covers
Students in the high school government class applied their recent economics lessons to create magazine covers. The fun project was designed to help students understand both micro and macroeconomics. The covers focused on influential business leaders and the impact of their companies on the economy, locally and then nationally. Some business leaders have also had an impact on a global scale.
“This project is a fun way for students to use their creativity to design a magazine cover while learning about an individual’s impact on an economy from various points in their product chain as well as the economy world,” said Eric Grimes, a government teacher.
