Oros Nominated for Outstanding Graduate Award
Numbers are a part of his future

Lincoln Herald Staff

When Carlos Oros started at Gaston College in 2019 shortly after graduation from North Gaston High School, he wasn’t sure what his future would hold. He had not made plans to continue his education, but friends and family recommended that he apply for community college. His experience at Gaston College changed his attitude about school. After graduating from Gaston on Friday (May 14th) with an associate of science degree,  Carlos intends to attend the University of North Carolina at Charlotte to major in mathematics. He hopes eventually to become a high school teacher or maybe even a college professor.

Oros was recently nominated for an Outstanding Graduate Award. His mathematics teacher, Sholeh Shariat, nominated him for this academic excellence award for his outstanding work in her calculus III class and his contributions to the Gaston College community.

“Gaston College was really enjoyable,” he said. “I’ve really appreciated the people there and interactions with my professors.”

Shariat extolled Oros in her nomination for the Associate in Science Outstanding Graduate award.  “Carlos received an ‘A’ for all his assignments and tests in my calculus III class this semester,” she said, “and he has also completed the extra work to make the class an honors course. He is a very bright and motivated student, and he has done extremely well on all his tests and projects. He works very well with other students in the math lab. Carlos is an excellent student tutor in the Gaston College Learning Center, and he has had a very positive impact on the students’ learning and success. He also worked as my assistant in my pre-calculus algebra class.”

Shariat cited Oros’s other activities at Gaston College, including participation in the Math Club, serving as its secretary 2019-20, and as vice-president this school year.  In those roles, he helped organize Math Club meetings and prepared club members for future math tournaments. He was a member of the Gaston College Math Team that took first place in team competition at the 2019 North Carolina Mathematical Association of Two Year Colleges Math Tournament. Oros is also in the Gaston College SPARC program, which offers scholarships to associate in science students who show academic merit and intend to major in a STEM field at a four-year university.
