The Heather Cannon Wildcat of the Week is Po-Hi Senior Josiah Hill.

“During his sophomore year in high school, Josiah suffered a sports injury and did not even realize he was injured,” said Superintendent Shelley Arrott. “He powered through many strenuous football practices and games until he could not push any further, and he ultimately had to have surgery. However, Josiah had a goal to letter in football, and he continued to train and become stronger until he met that goal during his junior year. He endured this entire challenge by staying focused on his goals, missing very little school, and maintaining a 3.3 GPA.

“As a senior, he is working as a student assistant in one of our classrooms and is a true mentor to the students in the class. Without doubt, Josiah personifies the characteristics of the Wildcat Way. We are very proud of Josiah for having the perseverance to reach his goals, for being a great team player and for demonstrating the Wildcat Way for all of our Wildcats to follow. He is a true role model for our students, and I know great things are in the future for Josiah Hill.”

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/
