NORMAN — Editor, The Transcript:
Did you ever hear an old-timer saying, “I’m so proud, I burst my buttons?” Well, that happened for “Grandpaw” and “Nana” at the Norman North Track and Field Awards banquet. It didn’t just happen for our grandchild, but for “all athletics” involved.
Such pride, appreciation, hope for the future generation to come, poise, manners and the true meaning of the event comes to our mind as we reflect on this event.
True meaning is coaches giving above and beyond to build character in the youth of our future. And real joy was seeing a true respect and appreciation from our youth for hours afforded them to be able to enjoy accomplishments of this magnitude.
The venue was great, the food wonderful and complete organization of the banquet presentation by the Booster Club was outstanding. Norman Public Schools can be proud of parents, students and the school for bringing together a team effort for the value of our next generation.
