The Heather Cannon Wildcat of the Week #1 for the 2021-2022 School Year was presented to Po-Hi Senior Abby Williams.
Superintendent Shelley Arrott said, “Not only is Abby a Ponca City Wildcat and exhibits the characteristics of the Wildcat Way, but she is an amazing person and an outstanding student. She is involved in many activities and excels in all of them. Abby is passionate about soccer and has played varsity soccer since she was a Freshman and plans to continue her soccer career at the collegiate level. On the field, she represents PCPS with great pride by demonstrating great sportsmanship, and her strong work ethic is evident from her skills on the field. She is also a member of FFA and currently serves as the Secretary of the Ponca City FFA Chapter. She shows goats in FFA, and Mr. Frazier says she is a bundle of energy and goes above and beyond to continually improve with her showing skills as well as taking impeccable care of her animals. In addition, she is a member of the National Honor Society, Student Council, FCA, Young Life, and is active in her youth group at St. Luke’s. Abby is not only highly motivated to put forth her personal best in her activities and studies, but she also treats everyone she meets with great respect and kindness. She is a friend to everyone!”
“Abby, you are the perfect selection for the first Wildcat of the Week Award for the 2021-2022 school year! A real Wildcat is highly protective of their own. The fact that you are involved in and excel in so many activities shows that you are prideful of your fellow Wildcats and you will do whatever it takes to represent them honorably. You participate in so much, but yet you do not let your activities interfere with your studies. Demonstrating excellence in everything you do shows you have amazing discipline. You stay focused on your goals, and great work ethic and discipline are traits that will serve you well for the rest of your life. I know you plan to pursue a career in the medical field, and I have no doubt you will blaze an amazing path for yourself upon graduation from high school. Your character is beyond reproach. Your community and your school are very proud of you! Thank you for ‘holding that line’ to represent the Ponca City Wildcats with great dignity and class.”
