Pioneer Telephone Cooperative, based in Kingfisher, has pledged its support for Northwestern Oklahoma State University through a $5,000 donation to the President’s Association.

The President’s Association is an annual giving program at Northwestern that supports special programs designed to enhance the education experience for students. It also provides support for the President’s Leadership Class, a highly-competitive leadership development and scholarship program for incoming freshmen.

“Pioneer Telephone and its members have long been strong supporters of Northwestern and its students,” said Dr. Janet Cunningham, university president. “We are extremely pleased and honored that Pioneer has chosen to invest further in the educational pursuits of our students.”

Cunningham said Pioneer has agreed to become the title sponsor of the President’s Association Golf Classic, which will be held April 20 at Pheasant Run Golf Club in Enid.

In addition, Pioneer serves as the official cellular telephone provider of Northwestern.

“Pioneer is a proud supporter of schools throughout western Oklahoma and is excited to support NWOSU through this sponsorship of The President’s Association as it develops tomorrow’s student leaders,” said Kent Kadavy, Division Manager of Sales & Marketing.
