• Shelley Poynter was a lifetime Maize resident who dedicated 27 years of service to the Maize School District. As a student at Maize High School, Shelley was an all-star athlete who graduated in 1981. She taught and coached in the Maize School District. At a young age of 35, Shelley was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was no surprise at this crossroads in her life that Shelley decided to fight and battle cancer with all her might. Shelley was an inspiration to all in her 13-year battle with cancer. Her perseverance to fight through and keep life as normal as possible for her family, students, and herself was nothing but courageous. Her motto was to “Keep on Believing.” The Shelley Woodard Poynter Memorial Scholarship was established in 2012 by AC Poynter, family, and friends.
