This week we honor Jaden Bullock (pictured with Coach Motley) as our Student of the Week! Jaden is concluding one of the best 2-week runs a student-athlete can have at Oscar Smith. After a dominating tournament run on the way to winning his second straight State Wrestling Title, this week Jaden was named the Chesapeake Sports’ Club Wrestler of the Year! Mix in his excellent academic record and you can see why (B1G) schools will be clamoring to get Jaden on campus next year. Add “Student of the Week” to the long list of accolades, Jaden!
Congratulations to Michelle Grace, our 2020 Teacher of the Year! This is her 5th year at Oscar Smith, but 14th overall.

Mrs. Grace was also selected as finalist for the Chesapeake Public Schools City-Wide Teacher of the Year! A wonderful person, leader, and teacher!
