BC)--In a sudden shakeup of the Oklahoma State Board of Education, Gov. Kevin Stitt replaced one of his own appointees on Thursday. Stitt appointed Melissa Crabtree, of Enid, to finish the rest of board member Kurt Bollenbach’s term, ending April 2, 2023. Bollenbach, of Kingfisher, has supported calls for a mask mandates. Crabtree’s appointment must be confirmed by the Senate next year. The governor installed Bollenbach and four other appointees to the board in 2019 while also reappointing Claremore Mayor Bill Flanagan. Crabtree earlier this year founded Enid Freedom Fighters, a group of vocal residents opposed to mandatory COVID-19 mask ordinances in the city. A Stitt spokesman did not respond to a question about whether Crabtree’s anti-mask philosophy factored into his decision to choose her. “Melissa Crabtree is a former teacher and social worker who is passionate about using her experience in the classroom to improve educational outcomes for all Oklahoma students,” Stitt said in a statement. In a Facebook post, Crabtree said she’s thankful for the opportunity. “An opportunity, I wasn’t even looking for, but one for which I am thankful!” she wrote. “I’m humbled, still surprised, and so excited!

SC)--Organizers say construction on Enid’s new, seven-field soccer complex is nearing completion. Advance Soccer Complex fundraising coordinator Nicole Winfield told Enid News and Eagle, after millions in private-dollar donations over the last few months, the capital campaign now has about $500,000 left to complete construction. The project, budgeted at a total $9.5 million, is one of the city’s largest private-public partnerships. The city of Enid has covered $3 million of the construction expenses, and two family foundations each donated $1.5 million more. With the funding from the Allen Family Foundation and the McLaughlin Family Foundation, construction at Rupe and Garland began in 2017, with an expected 2021 completion date. To be named after the Atwood family from its donation, the 4,000-square-foot clubhouse will include a weight room, four locker rooms, bathrooms, a separate referee locker room, a VIP room, board rooms/offices and multi-purpose training areas. Naming opportunities also exist for donations to the complex’s other facility and amenities projects.

Should the project meet its $9.5 million goal, Winfield estimated 2022 for completion. Those interested in donating can visit the complex’s website at www.advancesoccercomplex.com or contact Winfield at (580) 354-7015.
