Three Northwestern Oklahoma State University seniors were awarded the Guthrie Scottish Rite Scholarship given by the Guthrie Scottish Rite Charitable and Educational Foundation.

Those awarded this semester are Steven Pfluger of Tonkawa, health and sports science education; Matthew Reed of Enid, history education; and Nikki Wadkins of Woodward, early childhood education.

Each semester the scholarships are awarded to teacher candidates who are completing their professional semester.

Dr. James Bell, associate vice president for academics and dean of faculty, and Dr. Christee Jenlink, associate dean of education and professor of education, presented the students their scholarships.

The Guthrie Scottish Rite Charitable and Educational Foundation works primarily with children with language and/or reading disorders. Recipients are chosen by the Teacher Education faculty members who have reviewed all applications and voted for the candidate they felt was the best choice.
