RiverWalk Crossing in Jenks working on a major comeback

KRMG

The RiverWalk Crossing shopping and entertainment complex in Jenks next to the Arkansas River got off to a promising start, but struggled after a few years.

Now, under new ownership and management, it's trying to make a comeback, and the first part of the plan involves getting people back out to remind them what an attractive and fun venue it can be.

Jessica Dyer coordinates events at Riverwalk, and she says she has a summer full of activities already planned.

"A lot of entertainment, street vendors, face painting, balloons, bands -- Los Cabos has bands every night," she told KRMG.

And those bands will have company.

"Every Saturday starting May 24th, we're having free concerts," she added.

They also plan some pop-up shops beginning in June, with hopes that some of them will be successful enough to take up residence.

Some of the businesses that have survived the lean times still thrive there, including the aforementioned Los Cabos Restaurant, The Melting Pot, Marble Creamery, and The Cigar Box.

There's a fireworks extravaganza planned for July that will last three days, and by the end of the summer it's hoped the RiverWalk will once again have a popular entertainment destination.

Then the next challenge begins — as holding people during the winter months has been one of the issues that led RiverWalk into hard times.

Rob Miller finalist for National Principal of the Year

 

"Jenks Middle School Principal Rob Miller is one of six finalists for 2015 National Principal of the Year from the National Association of Secondary School Principals.

He was named Oklahoma Principal of the Year in February, which made him eligible for the national honor.

As a national finalist, Miller will be honored during a September awards luncheon in Washington, D.C., on Capitol Hill and will be recognized at the annual State Principals of the Year Institute conference.

"Schools cannot succeed without great leaders committed to the success of each student, and Rob clearly models the knowledge, skills and attitudes that constitute great leadership," said JoAnn Bartoletti, executive director of the national association, in a news release Tuesday.

The National Principal of the Year Award is given annually to one principal who exemplifies the characteristics research has shown to be most effective in school leadership.

The search for the national principal of the year began in early 2014 as each state principals' association selected its state principal of the year. From this pool of state award winners, a panel of judges selected three middle school principals and three high school principals as finalists.

The finalists will be interviewed by a separate panel of judges Sept. 7, and the 2015 national winner will be announced during National Principals Month in October."
