Names of African People proposed for new higher colleges in WFISD

Otis C. Polk was a Wichita Falls ISD principal beloved by his students. His words and phrases from decades ago keep on being in their minds to this working day. 

They remember him ending early morning announcements with a stating: “If a undertaking is once started, in no way go away it ’til it is carried out. Be the labor good or small, do it very well or not at all.” 

Polk would go on to say, “Make it a great working day or not. The alternative is yours.” 

His title was proposed about 30 times as a namesake for a single of the new substantial universities in WFISD to open in slide 2024, according to information received by the Periods History News by means of an open up information ask for to the district.

Penny Rhodes of Wichita Falls was amongst people who proposed the name of the former  principal of Kirby Junior High, now Kirby Middle Faculty.
