Welcome to GPSD Oklahoma!!!!

On behalf of Oklahoma School for the Deaf, we would like to welcome you to the 24th Annual GPSD Basketball tournament. We are very excited to host the prestigious event. We are located nearby the Arbuckles Mountains. We hope you will take the time to explore our beautiful scenery. We have a new Chickasaw Cultural Center and Chickasaw National park among others.

During this time together, we encourage the students-athletes to enjoy themselves and play competitive basketball/cheerleading. Above all else, we want to act respectfully toward each other and exhibit good qualities of sportsmanship.

OSD welcomes you with open arms for this event and hope that friendship will be created that will last a lifetime. We are looking forward to your participation in this GPSD tradition.

If there is anything that our staff can do to make your stay pleasant, don't hesitate to ask.

GPSDically yours,
Tommy Varner, Jr.

Dear Students, Staff, Parents, Alumni and Community Members,

Welcome to the 2013 Great Plains School for the Deaf Basketball Tournament. We are so glad you are here to witness our Homecoming game. The GPSD tournament is always an event greeted with great anticipation yearly. It is always so heartwarming to see so many old and new faces on our campus to compete in the spirit of competition. So many lessons learned in sports, such as commitment and teamwork, spill over into everyday life.

As you watch the young men and women as they compete in this weekend’s events, it is important that you recognize that each of the schools here deserve recognition for their commitment for ensuring the continuation of this tournament. It is vital that our young athletes continue to experience the excitement this tournament generates annually.

If I, or any one on our campus, can be of service to you, please do not hesitate to contact me.

KaAnn Varner, Superintendent
Oklahoma School for the Deaf
