On Tuesday, March 1, the Ozark-Nixa District Duel raised at least $4,000 to be split between the two schools for Project Graduation parties.
Ozark faculty won basketball and volleyball games, and Superintendent Gordon Pace won the ”Are You Smarter Than a Superintendent” match. Tiger mascot Robert Booker won the tug of war against the Eagle mascot, and Ozark brought home the trophy for a second year.
Thanks go to Katherine Morrison for chairing the event, to Debbie Wheeler for taking care of the T-shirts, to Susan Howser for games and activities, to Monica Wingert for the chilli supper, to Rose Schmidly for the Hospitality Room, to Cynthia Fitzgibbons for Concessions, and to the Wachas for publicity posters.
Thanks also go to the following volunteers: Gina McBain, Theresa Sartain, Deb Hedgepeth, Dinora Canizalez, Susan Mullins, Mary Dyke, Melissa Sixkiller, Sharon Chronister, Judy Hollman, Pat Conti-Withrow, Kristin Wherley, Mary Bode, Lisa and Donovan Dobbs, Yvette Laturno, Tim and Susan Eastin, Barb Quas, Jodie Miller, Linda Fugate, D’Ann Karr, Joanna Hayes, and Tom Seboldt.
