Just Jeri: Once a Lawton High School Wolverine, Always a Wolverine!
I graduated from Lawton High School in 1977. I said what I said. I know I don't look - at least, to me - or feel like I have been out of high school for 45 years, but the numbers don't lie.
I've had the pleasure of going back to my alma mater a few times over the years, mostly when they do the school tours during reunion weekends. Last week, I was given the opportunity to go back one more time and was honored to judge the hallway decorations for LHS Homecoming 2022.
While attending Lawton High, I was involved in so many things. I was a LHS High Stepper and on the yearbook committee for two years. I've always been so proud of the spirit that is found "in the Halls of Lawton High," and to say that this high level of spirit still exists would be an understatement. Kylee Montgomery, the Activities Director at LHS, took Don Demartra and I through the halls to score the hallways decorated by each class.
LHS Homecoming Hallway Contest 2022
I've attached pictures from each class, and of Don and I scoring the halls. I'm not gonna lie, I was super impressed with the talent that these students showed with their themes, and decorating skills. I have always admitted that I'm a softy when it comes to judging. My scores are always high, and usually, only one point will separate the first and second places. I think I have found my high score match in Don. The halls were just so good. I told Mrs. Montgomery more than once that I had goosebumps just walking the hallowed halls that I walked for four years of my life. And, because it was gameday, I rubbed the nose of the famed Wolverine, and to get it ready for the game, I stomped on its head. It's tradition after all!
Congratulations to the Senior Class of 2023! They were the winners of the hallway contest with the freshmen following in second place.
And congratulations to the Homecoming Queen and King, Sherry Copeland and Devarius Hardy for their win during the game last Friday night!
And a special congratulations to the LHS football team that is now 4-0 with a homecoming win over Putnam City! And best of all, Lawton High School are CITY CHAMPS after conquering their games against city rivals Eisenhower High School and MacArthur High School.
It's always a great time to be a Wolverine.
