Thomas Wildeman ‘11
Apprenticeship in Germany '11-'13
Samford University '17

Thomas Wildeman is the definition of a well-rounded individual. He lives his life as a dedicated Christian, brother, son, friend, student, and athlete. During his years at Oakbrook, Thomas was a true role model not only to his two younger brothers, but for all the young men and women. God used Thomas’ witty sense of humor and positive attitude to bless and encourage his fellow students. He carried these qualities into his life after Oakbrook and continues to succeed in both his academic and personal life. “Oakbrook prepared me for a life in the real world. After Oakbrook, I worked in Germany doing an apprenticeship at a German textile machine company, studying Industrial Mechanics. I believe the values of personal responsibility and community was very influential to my experiences there. I had to keep up with expenses, learn to manage my time with friends and responsibilities at work and school. I immediately sought to be a part of the Christian community in my neighboring town because of the value Oakbrook put on its community. I grew spiritually living on my own because I was entirely responsible for my growth in Christ. I am pleased to say that through a background of Christian influence I have been able to continue to grow through adversity. I have learned to value the education I have received at Oakbrook and have practically applied my skills in mathematics, German, and economics throughout my daily life. I am encouraged to know that each year Oakbrook will produce people ready to enter the “real-world” prepared academically, athletically, and spiritually for what awaits them.”

 


Brady Jackson ‘13
Duke University ‘17

With his friendly and gregarious personality, it didn’t take long for Brady Jackson to find his place at Duke University. After graduating from Oakbrook in 2013, Brady fulfilled a lifelong dream by attending Duke. He immediately made new friends and became a part of the Duke community much like he had during his years at Oakbrook. As Oakbrook’s Student Government president, Brady was instrumental in creating entertaining and exciting activities for students and he has carried those skills with him to college. “While I was trying to think of ways in which Oakbrook helped me grow as a person, especially in my leadership and foundational skills to prepare me for college I realized something. I realized that there isn't one single way in which Oakbrook helped me assimilate into college; Oakbrook is the entire reason that I have been able to assimilate smoothly into college. Day after day Oakbrook instilled in me the values of morality and always pushed me to be the very best Brady James Jackson that I could be. It is only because of Oakbrook and the tremendous amount of support that I always received there that got me into Duke. I am truly thankful for everyone who played a role in my life at Oakbrook. I would not be who I am or where I am without them.”
