The Heather Cannon Wildcat of the Week #16 for the 2020-2021 School Year was presented this week to PO-HI Senior, Brady Ladner.

Superintendent Shelley Arrott said, “Brady Ladner is a go-getter! When he sets his mind to something, he follows through and finishes on top. Brady is involved with a sporting activity every season including cross country in the fall, swimming in the winter, and track in the spring. As a senior, he served as captain of both his cross country and swimming teams.”

“When he is not participating in a competition, he is one of the anchors of the PO-HI Daily Video Announcements. He is very active in Business Professionals of America and earned a ticket to the National BPA Competition where he and his team will be competing in the Broadcast News Production Team event.”

“Brady also participates in Symphony Strings Orchestra. Even though he is very involved, Brady puts a major focus on his academics and maintains an exemplary GPA. Brady has always been very driven and was elected to Boys State as a junior. Just recently, Brady earned his rank as an Eagle Scout, which is the highest achievement and rank in the Boy Scouts of America program.”

“With all of his accomplishments, it is obvious he is very disciplined, dedicated, and a true leader! Upon graduation, Brady is going to serve his country in the Air National Guard before attending college.”

“Brady, I cannot even express to you how proud your Wildcat Family is of your accomplishments. As I mentioned to you today, I enjoy watching you anchor the PO-HI daily announcement in the morning; it’s a great way to start my day.”

“I have thought to myself that you have a future in broadcast news, and I can see you being an anchor on my favorite morning news station. You are a very active young man and you put a great deal of discipline into these activities to ensure you compete to the best of your abilities. I love how involved you are in a variety of activities, which proves you are the embodiment of PO-HI Spirit, and I am so impressed you have earned the elite rank of Eagle Scout!”

“You are a true leader and demonstrate great work ethic and sportsmanship, which makes you a wonderful role model for EVERYONE to follow. In these challenging times of living in a global pandemic and political unrest, I am super proud of you for making the decision to serve your country in the Air National Guard.”

“On behalf of PCPS, I want to thank you for representing Ponca City High School with such pride. Along with your parents, your school and community are very proud of you!”
