Arvest Bank will honor teachers throughout the state of Oklahoma by awarding 33 educators with a total of more than $15,000 in prize money.
The decision to award 33 $500 gifts to individual teachers from a pool of more than 90 communities was made not only out of respect and appreciation for the work teachers do, but as a sign of support at a time when many school budgets across the state have been cut. All prizes will go to teachers who work at state-funded schools.
“Arvest understands how important teachers are to our children, our communities, and our future,” Arvest Marketing Manager Angela Spradlin said. “We appreciate how hard teachers work and hope these awards will be accepted as a show of gratitude and gratefulness.”
