by Elizabeth Pitts-Hibbard

According to unofficial results from the Oklahoma State Election Board, Marlow voters overwhelmingly passed a $34M bond issue for Marlow Public Schools today.

The bond issue includes improvements to the high school, football and wrestling facilities, and adds a Performing Arts Center to the high school campus as well as FEMA-funded safe rooms at the high school and middle school with 25% matching funds from Marlow Schools.

“I’m grateful that the community showed up in support of Marlow Schools,” said Superintendent George Coffman. “It’s not just supporting the school buildings; it supports the students, the faculty, and the community.”

Coffman said he believes this bond issue will continue to benefit future generations of Outlaws.

“This is what our future looks like,” Coffman said. “The entire community coming together to make things better for the next generation.”
