Featured Student: OYCP Overall Outstanding Cadet Yesenia Reyes Sanchez

January 7, 2019 - In mid-December, thirteen HSD students were among 139 students statewide to complete the Oregon National Guard Youth Challenge Program (OYCP). OYCP is Oregon’s only accredited statewide alternative high school. It operates similar to a military academy and is guided by structure, discipline, physical fitness, service to community, and academic classroom instruction. Cadets are eligible to earn a high school diploma, GED, or credit recovery during the 22-week residential phase of the program; and post-graduation enter a 12-month mentor-active period where they return to their communities to implement their goals and objectives. Hilhi student Yesenia Reyes Sanchez earned the highest honor of Overall Outstanding Cadet of the Company! Way to go, Yesenia, and congratulations to all of our OYCP graduates.
