ASB Award -Oxnard High School

Oxnard High’s ASB has developed a mission to empower our students to be agents of change, and to partner with administration to build a culture of care. Our student leaders model inclusion through our campus-wide activities that now, go beyond on-campus rallies and dances. We apply a social-justice lens and it’s proven vital in the way we have pushed to transform our students school experience.

We’re advocates at heart. It shows in how we’ve launched the first Clothesline Project on Sexual Assault and Violence – the first high school in Ventura County to do so. We’ve recognized our campus’ diversity with a Cultural Week and are excited to launch our next PRIDE Day in June. Last year, we were the first in the district to hold a day celebrating our LGBTQ+ community. Everyone’s lives and our narratives are important and we’ve made it our goal to not let anyone go unnoticed. That is why we actively celebrate our students and staff for who they are and the identity they hold. We were elated to hear Superintendent DeLeon mention that she looks forward to supporting this us this year at our PRIDE Day!

Our move to be a passionate, social justice-driven associated student body lead to one of our greatest recognitions at the state level. OHS ASB was recognized and awarded the distinction of an Outstanding Leadership Program from the California Association of Student Leaders organization (CASL). Only 5% of programs whom apply – which included letters of rec from our Principal to name but one – and writings to prove how we are shifting our campus culture with our many areas of growth – were chosen and we are one of them. Love and care runs deep in every decision we make. We are a diverse student-group, know the power of helping others, and how important equity is as we lead. We want to thank you for taking a moment to listen to our narrative, our mission and for always supporting us. Without our Principal and strong leaders, we would not be able to launch all the campus-wide activities and bring more awareness to our school.”
