Mac High earns Character designation

MacArthur High School received the official designation as a 2018 National School of Character on May 18.

Character.org validates character initiatives in schools and communities around the world.

"It is a tremendous honor for our school to be recognized as a National School of Character," said Rod Elam, MHS principal. "This is an accomplishment in which everyone at MacArthur had a part and I am very proud of the entire faculty, staff, and student body for this recognition."

After a two-year long process, MHS is the second school within Lawton Public Schools to receive the distinction. Eisenhower High School was named a National School of Character in 2017. The process is comprehensive and extensive, but for assistant principal Laura Puccino it was "worth the efforts of all."
