RG)--Enid Public Schools has announced a new inductee to the Enid Public School Foundation (EPSF) Hall of Fame, long-time employee and public education advocate, Ron Garrison. The induction will take place during halftime at Enid High School’s first home football game at D. Bruce Selby Stadium. Garrison, a 1967 EHS graduate, began his career with EPS as a teacher and coach at EHS and later went on to be the head principal of EHS. He has been the Director of Property Services for the district since 1997 and his total years with the district spans five decades. Garrison is the only EHS graduate to serve as a principal of EHS to date. Janna Jackson, director of EPSF, said she is excited to be involved in another Hall of Fame recognition. “We are proud to include Ron Garrison in the EPSF Hall of Fame in recognition of his outstanding work”, said Jackson. “He has had an enormous influence on students and teachers during his tenure and continues to be a strong leader for public education.” EPSF is a non-profit organization, operated by a volunteer Board of Trustees, which supports EPS. They awarded $128,000 during the 2020-21 school year to EPS classrooms, teachers and students through various programs. EPSF has been sponsoring the Hall of Fame since 2001 as a way to honor EHS graduates and those who contribute greatly to the community and schools of Enid. The Hall of Fame is displayed inside EHS on the second floor where students and visitors can read about all inductee’s lives and accomplishments.
