Claremore seniors attend annual mother, daughter tea


Claremore High School senior girls and their mothers gathered for the annual Senior Girls Tea Saturday at the Rogers State University Centennial Center.
Hosted by PEO Chapter FI, Aladdin Club, Junior Ocieleta and RSU, the event allowed soon-to-be graduates an opportunity to reflect on the past four years and beyond, while dedicating appreciation to family members and friends.
Seniors Kaleigh Cox and Anna McGuire offered a “reflection on friendship” to attendees.
“Graduating high school is a bitter sweet experience. I am so grateful for the relationships we have built throughout our time at CHS,” said Cox. “True friends are such a treasure and I can personally tell you that without the friendships I have in my life, I would not have been able to make it through the past four years, and I’m pretty sure all of us can attest to that.”
McGuire said the people we spend our time with, essentially determines the path that we travel.
“As we branch out on our separate paths, it’s imperative to surround ourselves with people that inspire us — shove us out of our comfort zones and encourage us to be the best we can be. We all have bright futures ahead of us, and I thank God for the friends who have gotten us this far,” said McGuire. “There are many adventures to come, along with countless more memories with new people. Growing apart doesn’t change the fact that for a long time we were were side by side, and for that I am glad.”
Guest speaker Ginger Neely Holley, BOK Financial vice president and treasury sales officer, presented words of advice and encouragement for the graduates.
“Safety first. Think about personal safety,” said Holley. “Make smart choices, take care of yourself, be aware of your surroundings and stay away from drugs. Choose to be a warrior, not a victim.”
