The 2013 OCS Homecoming was another festive reunion for the OCS community. Student floats were over the top, depicting Captain Hook’s pirate ship, the Land of OZ, the Island of Atlantis and Candyland. Homecoming royalty included returning 2009 Homecoming Queen Chelsea Nestlerode-Zarraonandia and her now husband, Donny Zarraonandia. We had our best turn out yet with alumni coming from all over to attend and participate in the Alumni March. Marshall Jones (2007) stepped from the OCS Blosser Field sidelines to participate—he is now part of the OCS Varsity Football Coaching Staff.

2007 - Matthew Fuld is a submarine officer aboard the USS Texas
A degree in mechanical engineering from Tulsa University, nuclear power training, and submarine school has prepared Matthew Fuld for his career as a U.S. Navy submarine officer. Lt. JG Matthew Fuld stopped by the OCS campus recently as he was on his way to Oahu, Hawaii, to take his new post on the USS Texas in Pearl Harbor. His role aboard this nuclear submarine will involve many activities for “maintaining the freedom of the seas,” said Matthew. While at OCS, he made sure to stop in to see his former World War II teacher Mr. Brad Livingstone (pictured above with Matthew).
