Once an LHS Wolverine, always a Wolverine
I graduated from Lawton High School in 1977. I said what I said. I know I’m not watching – at least for me – or I feel like I’ve been out of high school for 45 years, but the numbers don’t lie.
I’ve had the pleasure of returning to my alma mater a few times over the years, mostly when they have school tours during homecoming weekends. Last week I had the opportunity to return once again and had the honor of judging the hallway decorations for LHS Homecoming 2022.
While attending Lawton High, I was involved in so many things. I was an LHS High Stepper and served on the yearbook committee for two years. I have always been so proud of the spirit found “in the halls of Lawton High”, and to say that this high level of spirit still exists would be an understatement. Kylee Montgomery, the activities director at LHS, took Don Demartra and I through the halls to note which hallways each class decorated.
LHS Homecoming Hallway Competition 2022
I’ve attached photos of each class, and of Don and I marking the hallways. I’m not going to lie, I was super impressed with the talent these students showed with their themes and decorating skills. I’ve always admitted that I’m a softy when it comes to judging. My scores are always high, and usually only one point separates first and second place. I think I found my match with the highest score in Don. The hallways were so nice. I’ve told Mrs. Montgomery more than once that I got goosebumps just walking through the hallowed halls I’ve walked for four years of my life. And, because it was game day, I rubbed the famous Wolverine’s nose, and to get him ready for the game, I stomped on his head. It is tradition after all!
Congratulations to the Senior Class of 2023! They were the winners of the lane contest with the freshmen following in second place.
And congratulations to the reunion queen and king, Sherry Copeland and Devarius Hardy for their win in last Friday night’s game!
And special congratulations to the LHS football team who are now 4-0 with a home win over Putnam City! And best of all, Lawton High School is CITY CHAMPS after winning its matches against city rivals Eisenhower High School and MacArthur High School.
It’s always a good time to be a Wolverine.

Beyond the era of Velvetta and Rotel, the queso entered a renaissance in America.

Listed here, in no particular or complete order, are some of Lawton’s tastiest fries and queso offerings.
