The Ponca City Public Schools “You Inspire Me” project was created to recognize dedicated students and employees who continue to motivate on a regular basis. Each month, the district will surprise one student, one certified employee, and one support employee to let them know how they are an inspiration to Ponca City Public Schools.

“Sometimes life gets so busy, we do not take the time to express our thoughts to our family and friends. Purposeful words of inspiration are powerful, and we wanted our PCPS family to experience the impact of heartfelt words,” Ponca City School superintendent Shelley Arrott said.

“I asked each administrator to provide me the name of one student, one certified and one support employee who are an inspiration to their site. We drew names, and each month we will highlight one person from each category. With education in Oklahoma facing difficult times, I feel it is important for students and staff to know what an inspiration they are to the district. When times are tough, our people will persevere!  Thank you to our school and community family for supporting Ponca City Public Schools!”

Katrina Hoch was the student recipient this month. She is a student at Wildcat Academy. Science teacher Steve Harris presented her with the honor. Woodlands Special education paraprofessional Kimberly Osborn was the support personnel recipient. Second grade teacher Ashley Magnus presented the honor to her. First grade Trout teacher Monica Pratt was the certified selection. Trout principal Carla Fry presented the award to her.
