Sapulpa Public Schools accepts Innovator of the Year Award(SPS) -- The Sapulpa Chamber of Commerce hosted its Annual Awards last Thursday and recognized businesses that made a difference in the community in 2020.

The honors that were awarded were Innovator of the Year, Business of the Year, and Citizen of the Year.

Sapulpa Public Schools was announced as the winner of the Innovator of the Year Award for the changes and efforts it made to continue educating students in the community.

Sapulpa Chamber of Commerce Chairman Jim Dilley presented the award.

“Our next award could be given to a number of companies as the pandemic forced many to change the way they did business. But transitioning from long-time habits to new ideas quickly is not easy. Face to face meetings to virtual is not something we expected and many of us didn’t enjoy. But this year’s winner had no choice. They were forced to invest in online systems, retrain management and staff and most importantly, they had to enable our youth to continue their education. Whether it was providing mobile hotspots for people without internet or sending kids home with backpacks full of supplies, it was accomplished in short order. Even food for children was provided with grab-n-go meals and curbside pickup. Safety procedures were implemented, a color-code system was adopted to ease communication about health risks and all this was done in just a few months after the pandemic began. Change is never easy and especially when time isn’t on your side. Please join me in congratulating Sapulpa Public Schools as this year’s Innovator of the Year.”

According to the Chamber, the Innovator of the Year Award recognizes a business that has succeeded and/or excelled through innovation and risk-taking especially with the recent pandemic. Examples of innovation may include introducing new products or services, technologies, growing existing product lines through unique approaches, or even implementing new policies, procedures or facilities for employees or customers.
