Senior Oasis Academy student Maiya Swan was recently accepted into the University of Arizona and received the Arizona Distinguished Award for $35,000. Maiya chose Arizona because of the location and its beautiful campus. She will be studying International Affairs and minoring in Psychology.
As far as her long-term goals Maiya says, “For a career, I am looking into being employed by either the Federal Bureau of Investigation or Central Intelligence Agency.” Her favorite class during her time at Western Nevada College was with Instructor Gehman, a Special Topics class called “The Making of a Murderer.”
Maiya wants to thank Oasis English teacher, Mrs. Stockard for helping her along the way. She credits her as an amazing teacher and someone she can look up to. Miaya will complete her Senior year playing lacrosse and serving as Senior Class President through Oasis Student Council and Leadership. She will graduate in May with both her High School Diploma and Associate of Arts Degree from Western Nevada College.
