Mrs. Venturacci

Academic Advisor

I am beginning my 28th year in education; 12 years in Federal Programs at CCSD writing and managing grants; 10 years at CCHS as Office Manager and Athletics. This is my 5th year at OACP as Academic Advisor for the Jump Start students and by far the best and most rewarding job I’ve ever had. I have always held a love for learning which could explain why it took me so many years to finally receive my BA in Elementary Education. I would be a full-time student if I had the money and time! Now I get to share my passion of learning with all our fabulous OACP high school students!

I have lived in Fallon for 37 years, married to a locally grown boy Mark who is a cattle buyer for Shasta Livestock and Western Video Market. We have two locally grown girls; Allie-25and a UNR graduate, Sadie -21 is attending TMCC. In my spare time, I enjoy working in my yard, hiking, watching the Giants, supporting the Wolf Pack and exploring Nevada.

Mr. Lenon

School Counselor

My name is Andy Lenon and this is my 12th year as a school counselor. I feel lucky and blessed to have a job that I am truly passionate about. For me work isn’t working, it is an opportunity to make an impact in our school and community.  I love to be in the classroom teaching our students social-emotional learning and emotional intelligence. I have a tremendous counseling team to work with here at the Oasis Academy.  My door is always open so come visit, call, or email.

Words of Wisdom

Have you ever been at sea in a dense fog, when it seemed as if a tangible white darkness shut you in and the great ship, tense and anxious, groped her way toward the shore with plummet and sounding-line, and you waited with beating heart for something to happen? I was like that ship before my education began, only I was without compass or sounding line, and no way of knowing how near the harbor was. “Light! Give me light!” was the wordless cry of my soul, and the light of love shone on me in that very hour. ~ Helen Keller
