Ponca City Public Schools announce Wildcat of the Week Kyter Welch

Ponca City Now - October 4, 2019 10:53 am

Shelley Arrott, Kyter Welch, Thad Dilbeck

The Heather Cannon Wildcat of the Week for week three is Po-Hi Senior Kyter Welch.

“Kyter Welch is just an all-around great Ponca City Wildcat,” said Superintendent Shelley Arrott. “He has this innate ability to build positive relationships with anyone because he is so personable, respectful, and positive. Kyter addresses people with respect and looks them in the eye when they are having a conversation, which is a great leadership quality and so very mature.

“In the Po-Hi Commons, he can often be seen networking with all students. He is a friend to all and strives to include all students as well as adults. Everyone feels that sense of belonging when Kyter is around,” Arrott said. “Kyter also plays football and has suffered several injuries, but he has not allowed these injuries to hamper his spirit, passion, or drive. He supports his fellow teammates and is right by their sides to encourage and motivate them. He makes it a point to take younger players under his wing to encourage them. Kyter leads by example to teach them what dedication and sportsmanship is about. I believe his teachers, friends, and coaches will all agree that Kyter personifies the Wildcat Way and is a true Wildcat both on and off the field.”

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.
