THANK YOU 11.10.12

ON BEHALF of the Fort Gibson School District, We would like to extend a heartfelt appreciation to the Cherokee Nation and the nursing staff: Jackie Stone, Carrissa Kiffmeyer, Stephanie Kemp, and Bobbie Stamps for your generosity in support of the community flu shot night and the time set aside for staff and family flu shots. Your personal commitment was incredibly helpful and allowed us to reach our goal. Your assistance means so much to me but even more to the staff and community of Fort Gibson.  Also a big “Thank You!” to Gabriela Briley, Melinda Sterner, George Kunsman, Eric Hopkins, and James Holmes for your time and energy in making the community flu shot night a success. Thank you from all of us,

Kim Sisley, District Nurse

Sherry Rybolt, IE Principal

Shelly Holderby, ELC Principal

I WOULD like to say thank you to the Phoenix Sports department for doing a wonderful article on the 7th Grade White Muskogee Youth Football team. Coaches, players and parents have made extreme sacrifices over the last five years to develop and promote this group of players and help with the building of a foundation for these future Rougher High players. I would also like to point out that the MYFC 6th grade team also qualified for the playoffs this year with a 7 and 2 record finishing third in their division and also our 3rd grade team finished 3rd in their division and qualified for the playoffs with a 6 and 3 record. Two other 7th grade teams compete in this league and also have a talented group that will be combined next year in the 8th grade.  The future is definitely bright for Muskogee Football in the years to come because of the work being done with the MYFC and Paul Young Football. All these young Roughers need is your support as they progress. Football is a true team sport and needs the help and support of parents as well as business and community. Everybody moving the same direction with the same goal will breed success in team sports and I feel Muskogee is on the right track, the only variable is time. The lights will soon be shining bright on Friday nights in Muskogee once again.
