B.C. Swinney Elementary Playground

The Lawton Public Schools is grateful for the new special needs playground equipment installed at B.C. Swinney Elementary School over the weekend. The equipment would not be possible without the support and coordination of Leadership Lawton Class XXIV, which worked with organizations in the community to raise more than $49K toward the project.

This is just another example of the quality of people who live in Lawton and their support for the community.

Tom Deighan has been selected as one of 51 members of Class XXVIII of Leadership Oklahoma

LPS Superintendent Tom Deighan has been selected as one of 51 members of Class XXVIII of Leadership Oklahoma. The class will tour the state in the year ahead as participants become more aware of Oklahoma's issues, economy and environment. 

Leadership Oklahoma -- which has produced more than 1,400 graduates -- works to create a network of leaders whose understanding of the issues facing the state make them more prepared to deal with them and make Oklahoma a better place in which to live.
