Wilson takes the helm at MEC

Mustang Education Center has a new principal for the 2017-2018 school year. Kirk Wilson has a bachelor’s of arts in speech/communication and a master’s in teaching, with professional experience in both an elementary and a secondary setting.

Wilson taught speech, drama, debate and English at Putnam City High School. While he loved the classroom and had students qualify for the national debate competition, he knew he wanted to be an administrator. He accepted a job at Classen School of Advanced Studies in Oklahoma City as an assistant principal, handling discipline and operations for sixth through 12th grade. Eventually, he took the head principal position at Wilson Elementary, a feeder school for Classen.  

Change to Zenith saves $326,502 in premiums, nets ladders for every school

Mustang Public Schools changed workers comp insurance providers in 2016 and selected The Zenith Insurance. The new contract and additional negotiation has saved Mustang Schools $326,502 in premiums. The relationship is also netting the district new ladders for every hallway.

Representatives of The Zenith Insurance made an appearance at Monday’s Board of Education meeting to present the district with a check for $2000 to purchase ladders for every school. The company follows trends in work related injuries and believes having accessible ladders for every hallway will cut down on workplace injuries.  

MPS 1948 gym keepsakes to be sold at Bronco Alley this Friday

For more than 65 years, the circa 1948 gym served the students and staff of Mustang Public Schools. The peeling gray block structure which became known as the PE building in recent years had reached a point where spending more than half a million dollars to simply bring the building up to code made it impractical to keep as an instructional facility. The building was razed on Aug. 11 to make room for a state-of-the art science academy for higher-level sciences.

Before the demolition though, half of the old gym floor was removed to create keepsakes for those who would like a tangible reminder of the memories of dances, basketball games, graduations and more which were held in the building. The Mustang Public Schools Foundation will be selling sections of the floor measuring one foot by two feet with a commemorative plate attached for $25 each.

A booth will be set up to sell the pieces at Mustang’s Western Days and also at home games of Mustang Broncos Varsity Football at Bronco Alley beginning with the matchup between the Broncos and the Yukon Millers on Friday, Sept. 1. Stop by Bronco Alley, which will be set up on the south side of Bronco Stadium from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. to find the MPSF booth. Bronco Alley is a new addition to Friday night football with booths ranging from restaurant and other food vendors to local businesses and organizations.

Garcia family surprises principal with perfect flower beds
Kathy Blackwell, Canyon Ridge Intermediate principal, returned to a surprise when she reported for work on Monday, July 24. She knew the weeds in the flower bed had gotten out of hand over the summer, some topping four feet tall. Student council students, teachers Kevin Koch and Christie Combs, and Watch D.O.G dad David Garcia took care of the flower beds after school in the spring, but that was months ago.

Blackwell pulled up to the building on July 24 to find Garcia, his wife Sharonda and their two daughters, Brionna and Kaitlyn shoulder deep in the flower beds.
