New Program Is to Help Teachers

ADA--Oklahoma public school teachers now have the opportunity to send their own children to East Central Oklahoma State University through the Teacher’s Promise Scholarship Program.

The program is a $1,500 scholarship offered to all children of Oklahoma public teachers, who meet the criteria.

“We would like to say thank you to the public school teachers of this state,” said Dr. Katricia G. Pierson, president of the school.

“With the countless hours of teaching they put in helping the children of our state learn and grow, we would like to provide this opportunity for their own families and children.”

Crystal Cosper, an alumni of the university and teacher in the Stonewall Public School system, praised the program.

“It truly warms my heart to know that ECU understands what it’s like to be an Oklahoma educator in today’s climate,” Mrs. Cosper said.

“They have made it financially easier on my family for my daughter to attend East Central Oklahoma State as an upcoming freshman next fall.” ..To read more, subscribe to the blackchronicle newspaper
