Bluepeak donates $5k to Blackwell High School

June 13, 2024

On June 4, Bluepeak Vice President Desi Stoops presented Blackwell Public Schools with a check for $5k toward the purchase of a new video board in the Blackwell High School gymnasium. The funds will allow for enhanced integration of interactive learning technologies, an opportunity to convey critical information to students, staff, and visitors during school hours, as well as extracurricular programs and school-wide events.

Blackwell Public Schools Superintendent, Shawn Haskins, and Blackwell High School Principal, Gerald Magin, were on hand to accept the gift from Bluepeak’s VP of Market Development, Desi Stoops, who is certainly no stranger to the City of Blackwell.

“I have many fond memories of summers spent in Blackwell in the early 80s, while my father was stationed there with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol," said Stoops. "In addition, I’ve known EJ Edgar, the BPS Athletic Director, and his family, my entire life. They are Perry natives as am I, and it’s just a special feeling to help communities that I’ve spent so much of my time in. It’s something I’m proud to be able to do, since the asset we’ve deployed in Blackwell will continue on for generations to come.”

“We are thankful to have a true community partner in Bluepeak that not only cares about the technology for residents, but also cares about all that we are doing here at the school system," said Blackwell Public Schools Superintendent Shawn Haskins. "We look forward to the continued collaboration in days, months and years to come.”
