His story is your story…. ❤️

🏆 Rich Strike wins $1.86Million.
🏆 Entered the race 30 seconds before the deadline.
🏆 Only got in the race because the 20th horse had to scratch.
🏆 Started from the worst post position on the outside of the track.
🏆 Had to make his way through the field of 19 other horses from the back.
🏆 Lost his previous 6 races and has only won one other race in his career.
🏆 His jockey, Sonny Leon, had never been to the Kentucky Derby.
🏆 His trainer, Eric Reed, has never had a horse in the Kentucky Derby.
🏆 Eric Reed tragically lost nearly two dozen race horses in a barn fire a few years ago and struggled with quitting.
🏆 Rich Strike was purchased in a claiming race last fall for only $30,000.
🏆 80-1 odds.

Rich Strike wins the 148th Kentucky Derby!!

Fun fact: his owner is from OKLAHOMA!!

Never lose hope.
Never doubt your ability to succeed.
Never listen to the well meaning who tell you you can’t.

We are so excited to share this!!!

Do you live off base and have thought about being a Family Child Care Provider!? This new law now allows Tinker Family Child Care to certify you to care for DoD dependent children without having to be licensed by the state.

For more information, contact our Community Child Care Coordinator at 405-734-6996.

Measure to increase access to child care for military bases becomes law

A bill designed to give families working at Oklahoma military bases greater access to childcare has been signed into law by Gov. Kevin Stitt. Sen. Brenda Stanley, R-Midwest City, is Senate principal author of Senate Bill 1286, which would allow the Department of Defense’s resources to be used for the licensing of child care to serve military bases in the state.

Stanley serves as vice chair of the Senate Veterans and Military Affairs Committee and said last interim, she and committee chair, Sen. Frank Simpson, R-Springer, met with officials at both Tinker Air Force Base and at Fort Sill to find a way to address the tremendous need for additional child care. Stanley said part of the problem was a backlog of up to a year for the child care licensing process through the state. She said in contrast, the Department of Defense has even more stringent standards and greater resources to help address this issue.

“Now that this legislation has been signed into law, we can take advantage of those resources to speed up the process and make sure our military and civilian families have access to the child care they need,” Stanley said. “I want to thank my House principal author, Representative Nicole Miller, Senator Simpson, our fellow members, and Governor Stitt for helping us better support the child care needs of families serving on Oklahoma military bases.”

SB 1286 took effect upon the governor’s signature.

“As a military spouse and mother, I remember the struggles in finding quality child care for our children. These child care providers already undergo extensive background checks through the U.S. Department of Defense’s program, which has very high standards,” said Miller, R-Edmond. “This opens up more options for our military families in choosing what works best for their child’s needs.”

🎓🎉🎓🥳🎓🎊It’s graduation season🎓🎉🎓🎊🎓🥳
Graduating high school is an accomplishment in and of itself. Graduating high school while being a military connected student is a major accomplishment.
The graduating class of 2022 has faced a unique experience during their senior year, between virtual school 💻 , blended learning, full-time instruction 📚 , and most recently tornado warnings 🌪 during prom, this school year has looked like no other. With all that is going on we want to take the time to recognize graduating high school seniors. If you would like to participate in the Senior Spotlight please submit a Facebook message via the Tinker AFB School Liaison page or email, [email protected], with a photo of the student and their name along with a little information about your senior (ex: a senior quote, what they will miss about high school, what's next, or their favorite high school memory).
We would like to spotlight as many seniors as possible, please let other military affiliated senior families know as well

Huge shout out to Jason Hackett KOCO for supporting military kids on #PurpleUP day!!

☀️HAPPY FRIDAY OKLAHOMA! Hope y’all are doing well.

Wearing 🟪 for Purple UP! day here in Oklahoma. It’s in honor of the Month of the Military Child, which underscores the important role military children play in the armed forces community.

Military-connected face unique challenges from a young age. They move frequently with their families, leaving friends, schools, and communities behind. They also say goodbye to deploying family members, not knowing when they will see them again. So a BIG shoutout to all the military children here in Oklahoma and across the country.
