Carrie Friesen was nominated by an anonymous student.

Mrs. Friesen is the pure definition of spectacular. She has taught and coached the cheer and pom teams at Midwest City High School for many years, but she never shows any signs of her optimism and creativity stopping. She is also the family and consumer science teacher, student council advisor, assistant Rotary/Interact advisor, and homecoming director.

Mrs. Friesen is also the pure definition of positive. She is always wearing a gigantic smile on her face. She always knows how to connect and relate to each and every one of her students and colleagues. You will never see her in a sour mood!

Mrs. Friesen is always the first one to volunteer to make Midwest City High School a better place for everyone. She comes up with creative ideas such as the Midwest City Homecoming MASKuerade and Lights, Camera, Action for H.O.G. (Heart of Gold) Week. You can always count on her to go above and beyond. 

"Mrs. Friesen is intelligent and creative. She is also known for being very selfless, hilarious, gentle, and warm-hearted," said her nominator. "I am so honored to have known her for three years now. I always look forward to hearing her voice and seeing her each and every single day. Her class is one of my all time favorites in my entire high school career."
