Skills USA Students Demonstrate "The ONY Way".
Skills USA 1
The OHS SkillsUSA group demonstrated "The ONY Way" this past Saturday. 

The group of students hiked 15 miles and gained 1,800 feet of elevation. The trip took 8 hours hiking and caused muscle fatigue, but provided spectacular views. The stellar weather, the absence of city noise and cell phone service, gave these students a healthy sense of pride.
