Douglass Senior Celebration

Oklahoma Pork Council recognized Douglass High School graduating seniors for their outstanding achievements on Tuesday night.

Douglass High School faculty and staff, local state officials, community leaders and the Oklahoma Pork Council gathered at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum Tuesday night to commend Douglass High School seniors for their tremendous efforts this past year. These students have gone above and beyond to complete their education, attending after-school programs and classes in the evenings on weekends to gain credits necessary for graduation.

“Our members start each day with a set of ethical principles that guide us through the day,” Oklahoma Pork Council Executive Director Roy Lee Lindsey said. “One of our ethical principles is to invest in our local communities. We believe young people are the future for our state, our country and our world. By recognizing the students’ efforts and dedication to their education, we demonstrate our commitment to our communities.”

The ceremony included a banquet meal, remarks from Oklahoma Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb and Sen. Constance Johnson, music from Douglass High School students and alumni, and an address from Class President Jarae Williams.

“We are proud to honor the extra work and dedication the members of the class of 2013 have invested in their education,” Oklahoma City Public Schools Media Relations Manager Tierney Tinnin said. “We want to thank the Oklahoma Pork Council for hosting this celebration of our Douglass seniors’ extraordinary efforts.
