During a recent meeting of the Stillwater Frontier Rotary Club, Ben Harris, a
co-founder of Epic Charter Schools spoke to the group. Epic combines the
convenience of online learning with the support of one-on-one instruction from
an Oklahoma certified teacher. This blended learning model allows students
- and families to set their own pace with the guidance and instruction from an
o Epic teacher who meets with them face-to-face as needed. Harris was wel-
comed by club president Butch Koemel (left) and Rotarian of the day Randy
e Wedel (right).
