Broken Arrow Mourns Student, Community Member


Broken Arrow Public Schools remembers student tragically killed in car accident

Active Broken Arrow community member also mourned

Story image 1_0Broken Arrow Public Schools (BAPS) is deeply saddened by the news that Noah Schriner, a senior at Broken Arrow High School, passed away as a result of a car accident Friday night.

Schriner played the baritone in the Pride of Broken Arrow marching band and was also a member of the symphonic band.

“My heart breaks for Noah’s family, his friends, and our Broken Arrow Bands students and parents,” BAPS Superintendent Dr. Janet Dunlop said. “As a mother of two students, I cannot imagine what they are going through. It is a tragedy I have had to say this far too often this year, but we are a family in Broken Arrow and we will support the Schriners and our students however we can.”

Tracy Fulps, a beloved member of the Broken Arrow community, was also killed in the accident. Fulps was an integral part of spreading Tiger spirit throughout Broken Arrow by founding the BA Youth Cheer and Youth Tigette programs as well as managing the Tiger Den, a licensed vendor of Broken Arrow Tiger merchandise.

“Tracy Fulps was the heartbeat of Broken Arrow youth sports and was an incredible woman of character and integrity,” BAPS Assistant Athletic Director Melenda Knight said. “She had a unique way of making everyone she came in contact with feel special. I can only hope her legacy will encourage others to invest in our youth the way she did so selflessly.”

Schriner’s funeral is scheduled for 1 p.m. Wednesday at Whispering Hills Church of Christ, 21349 E. 111th St. Fulps’ funeral will be at 1 p.m. Saturday at The Assembly, 3500 W. New Orleans St.

The Schriner Family has asked for memorial donations to be made to the Pride of Broken Arrow in lieu of flowers. Donations may be mailed to:
