St. Mary’s receives scholarship checks

St. Mary’s Catholic School has received scholarship donations totaling over $24,000.

Check presentations were held last week from the Tax Credit Scholarship Program from the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City as well as the Knights of Columbus Holy Family Council #11909.

Representatives from the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City Catholic Schools office presented the school with a check for $21,181 in scholarship funds generously donated through the Oklahoma Equal Opportunity Education Scholarship Act, which affords tax credits to Oklahomans who give to a scholarship granting organization.

The school was also presented with a $3,000 scholarship check from the Knights of Columbus Holy Family Council #11909.

“St. Mary’s appreciates all of the generous donors who made these scholarship funds possible for our students,” said Principal Stan Melby. “These funds helped 25 students this year who would otherwise not have been able to attend.”
