MPS JOM Senior Banquet 2022

MOORE, Okla. (April 7, 2022) -- Moore Public Schools seniors involved in the Johnson O'Malley (JOM) program for Native American students were honored Friday evening during their Senior Banquet held at Emmaus Baptist Church.

The MPS Native American Education program is funded by Title VI and JOM grants that help support the 140+ Native students graduating this year. The Master of Ceremonies was Courtney Yarholar, who is Sac & Fox and father to MPS students Jude and Nora Yarholar. He is a mental health professional specializing in children, youth, family services and systems development. His interest is to decrease suicide among young people and eliminate behavioral health disparities among American Indian tribal communities. He currently works as the Director of Organizational Development with the Native Services Unit of the Boys & Girls Club of America.

Also in attendance was guest speaker Christian Wassana, who is Cheyenne and Arapaho and is the creator of the motivational movement, "I Am, I Can, I Will." He graduates from The University of Oklahoma in May with a bachelor's degree in business. His movement and message have allowed him to travel the world and speak to thousands of different nationalities and backgrounds. He wants to see all people succeed and become the best versions of themselves. 

Westmoore High School junior Madison Switch-Fixico, who is a member of the Iowa Tribe, shared a beautiful Hoop Dance at the Banquet.  Cheryl Anquoe, owner of Ahpalohm, provided photography for the evening. She is a former JOM Princess and is a member of the MPS JOM Dance Troupe. Presentation of the stoles for graduates was done by  JOM Princess Kennedy Fridia.
