Oologah has an Academic All Stater for the second year in a row.
Chance Fletcher has been named one of the top 100 graduating seniors in the state.
Fletcher earned the prestigious Academic All State honor from the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence. OFE Chairman David Boren has called the selection process “Oklahoma’s most rigorous academic competition.”
Academic All-Staters are nominated by their principals or superintendents and are selected on the basis of academic achievement, extracurricular activities and community involvement, as well as an essay submitted by each nominee.
“Chance is one of the brightest students I’ve ever been associated with. He has a bright future ahead of him. Oologah High School is very proud of him and the community should be too,” Oologah High School Principal Robert Schornick said.
Fletcher is an Eagle Scout, student council president, district representative for the Cherokee Nation Tribal Youth Council and a four year varsity soccer player. He is captain of the academic team, a member of the youth leadership team at Harbor Church and he attended Youth Leadership Oklahoma and a LEAD summer business program at Dartmouth College.
Schornick called Fletcher to his office last Friday to tell him he’d earned all state. Fletcher got a big pat on the back from his principal.
“I was really excited and I was happy,” Fletcher said. “It’s a big accomplishment and I’m honored to be a part of the group.”
