Two ROP Success Stories
Brandon Gruber from Jenny Angelacos's ROP Graphic Design Class
Aptos High School Senior Named Homecoming King On A Mission To Pay Popularity Forward
If it had happened to someone else, it might have been considered a happy ending. But when Brandon Gruber, an 18-year-old senior with Down Syndrome, was carried off the Aptos High School football field this past September after being voted homecoming king, it wasn't a happy ending to his story. To be clear, Brandon was happy. It just wasn't an ending to him.
Morgan Andrews from Doron Brenner's 2011 ROP CAD Class
Morgan Andrews was a senior in Mr. Doron Brenner's ROP CAD class in 2011. Of the many careers the class explored, Morgan especially enjoyed civil engineering and was accepted into the engineering program at Portland State University. While still in school, Morgan is already working in her field, recently serving as lead designer of a $590,000 sewer replacement project in Portland, Oregon. Construction will begin this month. Way to go Morgan!
