May 19, 2020 (OKLAHOMA CITY) – Facing the single greatest challenge to the blood supply it’s ever seen, the Oklahoma Blood Institute is urging all Oklahomans to donate blood immediately.
Thirty-five Sulphur High School seniors were honored Monday night in the school’s auditorium with a host of academic and athletic awards. The group, above, was honored in a combined assembly with several award presenters and Principal Clete Cole serving as the host for the evening. The awards normally are given out in separate assemblies, but due to COVID-19, they were combined into one event.

Graduation exercises for 97 Sulphur seniors and 11 from Oklahoma School for the Deaf will be held this Friday and Saturday respectively, school officials have announced.
Cities and communities around Oklahoma including Sulphur are beginning to open up amid the COVID-19 pandemic, but state health officials are reminding residents to continue to practice good health procedures like wearing a mask, good hygiene and social distancing.
The pandemic has reached an anniversary of sorts. It has been four months since the first COVID-19 case in the U.S. was diagnosed.
