The support personnel recipient was Donny Edwardson, head custodian at East Middle School. East principal Denton Long presented him with the special honor.

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