The Heather Cannon Wildcat of the Week #13 for the 2020-2021 School Year was presented this week to PO-HI Junior, Jaylyn Dressen. Superintendent Shelley Arrott said, “Jaylyn Dressen is truly a driven, determined, and extremely kind person who exhibits all of the characteristics of the Wildcat Way. Jaylyn is highly motivated with her studies, activities, and her work ethic is admirable. She has played soccer on the Lady Cat competitive soccer team for the last 3 years, has played club soccer for 12 years, is a member of the National Honor Society, has a part-time job, and maintains exemplary grades with rigorous courses.”
“Jaylyn dreams of being a Physical Therapist, and she continually monitors her grades and her progress with coursework and credits so she can continue her education to achieve this goal. On top of all these activities, she runs her own successful side business of making and selling bath salts. Her teachers tell me her kindness, willingness to help others, respect for her peers and teachers show no boundaries. She goes above and beyond to represent herself and her family with outstanding character and dignity.”
“Jaylyn, it was a pleasure meeting you today and from the moment I met you, I immediately knew your teachers were exactly right when they said you were such a sweet and kind person. On top of this year already being challenging due to the global pandemic, you had some challenging issues you faced personally. You fought through the challenges, maintained a positive attitude, and conquered the issue. Life is certainly not easy, but you have proven you have the resilience, determination, and will to persevere.”
“These traits will help you navigate any issue you may encounter. Embrace any challenge and use that mental toughness and diligence to overcome with a positive attitude, and you will continue to grow through these experiences and you will prosper and succeed in the game of life. I am proud of the way you demonstrate class and positivity even when things get tough. The way you handle adversity is a model for people of all ages! Your fortitude, attitude, positivity and loyalty is impressive. I am so proud you are a Ponca City Wildcat; you represent us well!
