    Jordan Waller, SDOHS Junior

     I transitioned to full time online when I won Miss Arizona Teen USA 2019.  This accomplishment provides me with the opportunity to travel around the country modeling, participating in fashion events and network with people from the Miss Universe organization. I enjoy that I can take courses on my own schedule, mainly, working ahead when I have a busy travel schedule.  I also attend the online labs frequently for additional in person support.

    Being an online student through DVUSD Online Program has helped me to pursue my dream by allowing me to go away to another state to play junior hockey. The flexibility of being able to complete my courses online instead of in a classroom helps me to stay on track when traveling to Canada to play games, volunteering in the community, and the daily grind of playing hockey, without falling behind in my school work. If I attended a traditional school I would not be able to play hockey at this higher level.

     I made the transition to DVUSD’s Online Learning program at the start of my Sophomore year. The teachers are incredibly helpful and truly do make the classes immersive and fun. I am currently holding a 3.97 GPA and have been offered the the Lumberjack Scholarship at Northern Arizona University. I plan on attending Grand Canyon University in the Honors College on their Presidential Scholarship. Over 100 other colleges across the country have contacted me as well. I feel that this has been a very successful educational experience.
