Congratulations to Karen Heizer, principal at Hoover Elementary School, who was named Administrator of the Year by the Oklahoma Association of Elementary School Principals.  We first photographed Karen when she was selected as Enid Public Schools Teacher of the Year in 1993 while at Glenwood Elementary.  This honor follows numerous awards and recognition achieved throughout her career as an educator.  As principal at Hoover for the past eleven years, she and her staff have led Hoover to national recognition as a National Blue Ribbon School.  Her philosophy of “be kind and work hard” is exemplified by her own actions, as well as the vision of the Hoover staff -
“Every child, every chance, every way, every day.”
Karen will be honored at a ceremony to be held in Washington, D.C., in October.  Thank you, Karen, for all you have done for the children of Enid!

Sharp Dressed (Young) Man

Wess and Vance bonded over their matching penny loafers.  It's nice to photograph a young person in traditional, dressy clothing and it shows how he's changed since 2006 (but still the same great smile).  Classy then, classy now.
