Click Here for a Letter from our Executive Director: With Much OASC Love from Sara Nilles

“OASC has been part of my life since 1989 and the organization and people involved in it mean the world to me. It is with a heavy heart that I submit my resignation as the Executive Director of OASC effective September 1, 2020. OASC has a history of serving our schools, advisers, student leaders and alumni since 1949 – it’s the connections and relationships that have made the hard work worth it. I hope I’ve made you proud in leaving OASC better than I found it. You have supported me, had tough conversations with me, questioned me, challenged me and motivated me to do and be better for our schools and students – I will be forever grateful for this opportunity.   It’s time for me to “fly with her own wings” and discover who I am without wearing my OASC hat (however, in reality we know my whole closet is full of OASC gear that won’t be going away anytime soon).”

OASC Testimonials

Changes my life…every year! – Teacher, OASC Alumni & OASC Camp Counselor

Really helped me develop my self-esteem and leadership skills. Taught me to work hard for what I wanted, follow my dreams, and subsequently lived in Switzerland for 3.5 years and got a Swiss and US degree and traveled the world. Recommended for any Middle Schooler and High Schooler looking to further their leadership skills and experiences. – Past OASC Camper

OASC was one the best things that ever happened to me. I got the chance to go to my first conference by the help of a friends of OASC scholarship and am forever grateful. I continued going to every conference and camp I could throughout middle school and high school and met some of the best people of my life there. If you want to develop not only your leadership skills but yourself, get involved with OASC! – Past OASC Camper
