The thing I enjoyed about Ponca City High School were the teachers that actually cared about the students, the ones who took time to get to know you and help you out when you needed it. The theater production class was my absolute favorite, but unfortunately it lacked good funding due to the fact that a majority of the school funding when to the sports team. I did not feel like that was fair, not everyone is a sports player or fan and majority of the students found interest in other extracurricular activities such as theater, band and art. I feel like they should change the way spend the funding, try and focus on all the different types of extracurriculars rather than just sports. Other than the amazing teacher, the rest of the schools staff did not really seem to care about the students. The counselor never listened to the students problems, but rather tried to shuffle them off as quickly as possible.

What I liked about Ponca city high school is the people there and the education I got. The teachers were nice and taught very good, I could ask for help and they would help me. Made a lot of friends and a lot of memories that I won't forget, the school is a great school and some of the things I would like to see change is maybe getting more supplies and different resources that would help the students and getting students prepared for college and the real world.
As a member of DECA I am thankful for the opportunity I have received to compete in Anaheim, CA in April for the Nationals event in Hostpitality and Tourism Operations Research Event. I am also thankful for the honor of making the PoHi Drill Team the past 3 years of my highschool career, this has taught me more about being a teammate, involving myself in activities, leadership skills, and had given me many friends while I've attended the highschool. Our coach is amazing, and is always there to help us when we need help and has taught us so much about being a team and being a great dancer. I am also thankful for the teachers who have taught me what I have learned and who have helped me grow as a person and as a student. While helping me achieve my goals of graduating with both cords around my neck at graduation next spring. I am very thankful for the FULL highschool experience at PoHi.
