The Savage Life!
Week of October 2, 2023
September Students of the Month
We have taken a different approach in recognizing our Students of the Month this year. We have chosen to honor them at a monthly assembly that also welcomes local businesses to sponsor the assembly and gives them an opportunity to talk to the students about their business and what it takes to be prepared for a career in that field. We held our first assembly on Thursday, September 28. Our first sponsor was Wynnewood Refining Company. Joining us on stage was VP & GM of Refining Rhett Webber.
Mr. Webber gave an overview of the different types of positions that are available in a refinery setting. He also told them what it took to be able to apply for some of those positions, things such as a college degree, trade school or just a high school diploma. He also stressed their core values and how they expect their employees to do the right things, take pride in their performance, care about the community, show up and work the time that they are there.
Those characteristics are also the same ones that we use when we go to choose our students of the month. We look for students who consistently exhibit responsibility, kindness, compassion, involvement in school activities, school spirit, integrity, and have a good attitude. We want students to realize that the habits and the attitudes that they have now are setting them up to be successful in their future endeavors.
I want to thank Mr. Webber and the Wynnewood Refining Company for sharing with us and being such a great partner to our school and to our community. We appreciate you!
