Ponca City Now - April 25, 2019 9:53 am

Po-Hi senior Sudeshna Nayak has been named the 12th Wildcat of the Week by Ponca City Public Schools.

“Sudeshna is another very talented Ponca City Wildcat who excels in many of our fine arts classes. She is a fabulous artist, no matter what form of art she is creating. Sudeshna is a member of the Po-Hi Chorale and is also highly interested in photography,” Superintendent Shelley Arrott said.

“In addition to being a talented artist, she is also an excellent student who puts forth her best effort in all her core classes, and this effort is certainly reflected by her exemplary grades,” Arrott said. “She is very sweet, caring, and respectful, and her friends tell me she has a great sense of humor too. She is a proud Ponca City Wildcat and is a very good person! We will miss Sudeshna next year, and we appreciate the way she continually models the Wildcat Way.”

Po-Hi Principal Thad Dilbeck and Superintendent Arrott presented Sudeshna with a “Wildcat of the Week” T-shirt, Wildcat window decal, and a gift certificate from Ground Round.

The “Wildcat of the Week” Award is sponsored this year by Heather Cannon Honda. The award is for a deserving high school student who follows the characteristics of the Wildcat Way which are Work Ethic, Improve, Leadership, Discipline, Compete, Attitude, and Teamwork. These characteristics may be exhibited in any setting and the award is open to all Ponca City High School students.

Several Ponca City patrons were involved in making the “Wildcat of the Week” a reality. These partners include: Tina Christian, Senator Bill Coleman – TEAM Radio, Heather Cannon – Heather Cannon Honda, Ground Round, and Tyndall Dentistry.

Each week a new “Wildcat of the Week” will be selected from the nominations of TEAM Radio listeners and viewers. Winners will receive a free meal from Ground Round and a T-shirt from Boss Custom Tees. PCPS will make the presentation weekly at Po-Hi.   If you know an outstanding student at Po-Hi who is living the Wildcat Way, please use the form in one of these links, or visit, or
