WOODWARD, Okla. — Larned native Connie Wise, the Woodward Elementary School librarian, was honored recently with the Oklahoma School Librarian Association, Polly Clarke Award. Wise has worked 20 years as Woodward librarian.

She did her practice teaching at Larned and Garfield schools. She earned a master’s degree in reading and her library science certification at Northwestern Oklahoma State University-Alva.
“We are very proud of Mrs. Wise and all her accomplishments,” said Kyle Reynolds, Woodward deputy superintendent. “She continues to work tirelessly to be a resource for students and staff, finding new ways to make learning more meaningful and engaging.
