Po-Hi Principal Thad Dilbeck, Haylee Willaford, and Superintendent Shelley Arrott.

The Heather Cannon Wildcat of the Week is Po-Hi sophomore Haylee Willaford.

“Haley is that student who sets goals and expectations for herself,” said Superintendent Shelley Arrott. “She plays both volleyball and tennis and carries a tough academic schedule that includes all Pre-AP and AP classes. Not only is it her goal to excel in her academic and extra-curricular courses, she strives to be a wonderful teammate by representing her squads and school with class and grace.

“She is one of those students who leads by demonstrating outstanding sportsmanship, but also by encouraging her teams and classmates. Haylee is very warmhearted and is loyal and dedicated to her family and friends. She is quiet and unassuming, but she is a positive influence on others by modeling exemplary behavior and dedication to being her personal best.

“Thank you, Haylee, for being a great person!  Your school family is very proud of you and I know your family and friends are too!”

The Wildcat of the Week receives a Wildcat of the Week T-shirt, a Wildcat window sticker, and a coupon for a delicious burger basket from Ground Round. The award is sponsored by TEAM Radio, Heather Cannon Honda, Tyndall Family Dentistry, Ground Round, and Legacy Signs.

The award is open to ANY Ponca City High School student. TEAM Radio makes the final selections and coordinates with school officials for presentations. Please use this link to nominate a high school student for Wildcat of the Week: https://www.poncacitynow.com//32875-2/
