Tabatha Thurman- EMCEE and Executive Assistant to Jill Castilla

Local students of all ages were able to participate in one last Back to School bash at Citizens Bank of Edmond’s Heard on Hurd over the weekend. The high temperatures did not keep the crowds away from enjoying local food, local shopping and Lime scooter demos, purchasing raffle tickets from the Edmond Public School foundation for their VW Jetta giveaway and dancing with the Teacup Chain Square Dancers.

“Being part of such a huge community event like Heard on Hurd not only helped us sell raffle tickets for the car we are giving away in December, but allowed to raise community awareness about the needs in Edmond Public Schools”. Said the Executive Director of the Edmond Public School Foundation, Deanna Boston. “We spoke to so many people that night about the needs of our teachers and students right here in Edmond. The proceeds from the car raffle will help the Edmond Public Schools Foundation fund academic projects in the classrooms through our Great Idea grants, send students to national arts and science competitions who may not have been able to go otherwise and support new teachers just getting started in the classroom.  We are so grateful for the community support”!

The Heard on Hurd stage featured three local talents including The Old Bulldog Band, Steelwind, and The Wight Lighters. The streets were also filled with music as the OC Summer Singers from Oklahoma Christian University played at the intersection of Main and Broadway.

Heard on Hurd returns to the corner of Broadway and Hurd only two more times in the 2019 season, so be sure to mark your calendars for September 21st and October 19th.

Hi! I am Sherri Hultner and I am the founder of EdmondActive. I started EdmondActive July 13, 2009 on Facebook as a way to bring all information about all of Edmond into one place, then started Around Edmond blog here at the site July 24, 2009 as a way of starting the conversation as to what is happening around our town. I have been a publisher of local zines, a glossy 80 page magazine distributed at a extremely high sell through on national newsstands of over 30% and EdmondActive Magazine for the last 23 years! I have been married for 31 years, have adult sons whom I am very proud of and have been a dog mom to 4 labs, 1 shepard lab, and a golden retriever.  EdmondActive print magazine was first published in November 2009 as a way to bring social media information into the outside world and is secondary to our social networks of over 35,000 residents in Edmond and OKC. The magazine starts its 13th volume in 2021, and I am grateful to have a great readership after all of these years.
