Philips chosen for prestigious honor

Devin Philips, a senior at Epic Charter Schools, who has been a student of Regina Bell for six years, is set to graduate as a salutatorian in 2024. He is an active member of the Civil Air Patrol program and has been chosen as one of the two Oklahoma liaisons. In February, he will represent his state in Washington, D.C., where he will lay a wreath at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, a prestigious honor.
