Northwestern Foundation & Alumni Association announces scholarship drive totals

NWOSU Foundation Release

The 2015 Scholarship Drive, which ended March 11, collected a total of $27,272.62 for Northwestern Oklahoma State University scholarships, the Northwestern Foundation & Alumni Association announced today.

During the month-long Scholarship Drive, off-campus teams of two and captains representing each building on campus competed in raising funds to finance continuing student scholarships at Northwestern through the Millennium Club scholarship endowment.

β€œI am always honored and impressed with the support and effort our local community demonstrates with our scholarship drive each year, especially our solicitors,” Skeeter Bird, Northwestern Foundation & Alumni Association CEO, said. β€œIt seems like everyone is just crazy-busy anymore, but these dedicated and passionate citizens carve out time to raise funds to support our students. I wish to applaud their time and efforts. I am also pleased and grateful for the generous response they receive from our community. Few universities receive the level of support from their community that we do. Our community and our University are mutually benefited by this extremely positive relationship.”
