Heritage Brunch 2016 Inductees

Our annual Heritage Brunch is an opportunity to celebrate the history and legacy of Oakland Christian School and to honor those who have so generously given of themselves to make the school what it is today.  This year, as we celebrate almost 50 years of Christian education we are pleased to honor Mr. Ed Mehlberg and Mrs. Priscilla Larned.  

 
Mrs. Priscilla Larned   Mr. Ed Mehlberg

Mrs. Larned came to OCS in 1972 to teach physical education and choir.  She left in 1976 to raise her boys, but continued to substitute teach and coach until she returned full time in 1986.  In her time at OCS she has taught middle school math, gym, health, P.E., and choir. In 1986 Mrs. Larned also began coaching volleyball and 32 years later has set the standard of athletic excellence and sportsmanship through this program.  Through 33 years of teaching and coaching, Mrs. Larned has influenced hundreds of middle and high school students and continues to impact lives through her teaching. 

 

Mr. Mehlberg came to OCS in 1973 and in the past 43 years he has been a teacher, coach, athletic director, and administrator. Most who know Oakland Christian School are aware of the tradition that Mr. Mehlberg has helped to instill in athletics, in heritage, in leadership and in his steady commitment to faith in Jesus Christ.  He has influenced hundreds of students to reach for success in competition, in ministry, in academics, and in their commitment to God. 

We look forward to reconnecting with friends and celebrating the heritage of Oakland Christian School.

 

Hear From Our Parents, Teachers, and Alumni

We've been at OCS for nearly a decade. The school has an outstanding staff and passion for education and the gospel. My girls are receiving an outstanding education.  I'd highly recommend OCS!

We have developed relationships with other parents as well as the administration and staff, and we see Oakland Christian School as a community that lives open-handedly and truly locks arms with one another to serve inside and outside of school.
