Konawa Elementary’s Diana Wallis Selected as a Top Ten Teacher of 2022

The people of Oklahoma Oil & Natural Gas have awarded Konawa Elementary teacher Diana Wallis with $5,000 dollars for being recognized as one of the Top Ten Teachers of 2022.

Wallis was selected out of more than 200 nominations for her outstanding work in engaging students in her classroom.

“Mrs. Wallis goes above what is expected to help her students learn and provides new and memorable experiences,” said Konawa Elementary Teacher Amity Carter. “She knows that for her students to develop their full potential, they must know someone believes in them and cares for them.”

Konawa Elementary School will also receive $2,000.

“One of our core missions is supporting education,” said Oklahoma Energy Resources Board Executive Director Mindy Stitt. “The people of Oklahoma Oil and Natural Gas are passionate about recognizing teachers for their efforts in creating the next generation of leaders.”

The OERB is funded by the more than 2,500 producers and thousands of royalty owners across Oklahoma through a voluntary one-tenth of 1 percent assessment on oil and natural gas production. The mission is centered around a simple idea: empowering unlimited opportunity for all Oklahomans. We are committed to the wellbeing and prosperity of all.
