As they embarked on their first official exhibition at Oceana High School, class of 2015 did a tremendous job dealing with the stress from this tedious project which involved doing plenty of research, essay revisions, 8 a.m. deadlines, 15 minute presentations, and a visual called The Toolbox for Change.
On May 14, Oceana Sophomores unfolded their creativity to the public by displaying their Toolbox for Change. For those who do not know or remember, The Toolbox for Change is a creative assignment designed to show what they think should be done to end the human rights abuse and heal the country.
Although it was optional, many students still attended sophomore exhibition night for extra credit and to show all the hard work that they’ve been working on for months. Many community members came and supported these sophomores as well.
One sophomore who attended sophomore exhibition night, Reniel Nuqui said, “sophomore exhibition night allowed me to express the main points to my project to a different audience.” Additionally, he said, “It gets you ready to interact with different people and you see more of what’s expected of you for senior exhibition”.
Ms. Pemberton felt that the sophomores did an incredible job; “the students were amazingly well versed and articulate and their artwork was moving and beautifully executed,” she gushed.
Overall, sophomore exhibition night was a success.
