Advisor Warren Shaw said, “ It is very rewarding to see the hard work and effort of our Oswego students recognized at a national level. We are among the top ten programs in New York State and we will continue to work to get even better in our efforts to achieve a gold level nationally. It is also gratifying to see Chrissy  receive recognition as being among the best of the best. She is a great representative for our school and our community.”

Continuing he said, “We greatly appreciate the support and encouragement of our Principal Brian Hartwell, as well as the support from our school board members. This would not happen without them.”
