Dana Craig Honored for 20-Year Partnership

“Ms. OG&E,” a.k.a., Dana Craig, has been a fixture in the Partners in Education program for 20 years. As the Community Relations Coordinator for OG&E, she has spent countless hours volunteering at Cavanaugh Elementary and serving as a liaison between her company and its partner school. In mid-November, Craig was given a well-deserved “thank-you” from the students and faculty of the school to which she has been dedicated for the past two decades.   

Cavanaugh staff and students surprised Craig by tying the celebration to the monthly assembly and spelling bee. Following the traditional student spelling bee, four teachers competed in the spelling challenge with Craig “calling” the words. Teachers spelled adjectives such as “compassionate,” “generous” and “big-hearted.” After several words, Teacher Donna Morse took the microphone and spelled out “Mrs. Dana Craig.” She proceeded to explain that each of the spelled words described Craig. Principal Hank Needham then presented her with a plaque and recognized Craig and OG&E for their wonderful partnership with Cavanaugh Elementary. He addressed the students saying, “You should all grow up to be like Dana Craig. This world will be a much better place if you all grow to be like her.”   

To show their appreciation, several individuals spoke at the ceremony about the impact Craig has on the school. Student Sydney Parker thanked her for working so hard to make Cavanaugh an even better school for the students. Speaking on behalf of the Cavanaugh teachers, Morse recalled some of her fondest memories of Craig and thanked her for caring so much about the students and the faculty. Valerie Gaunt, a Cavanaugh staff member, noted that in her 19 years with the school she had always been able to count on Craig to help with anything she needed. Dr. Benny Gooden, Superintendent, expressed his appreciation to Craig and to OG&E on behalf of the District.   

Craig, in return, told the crowd that she considered it an honor to be a part of the Partners in Education program and that this was a day she “would cherish forever.”
