Scott County Boys and Girls Club will have the opportunity to update their computer and technology lab thanks to a $6,000 donation from the Arvest Foundation.


The gift was announced today at an Arvest Bank open house in Waldron. Shelley Buckles and Ted Sheets of Arvest were on hand to present the check.

The Arvest Foundation donation will allow the Scott County Boys and Girls Club to update a computer lab with updated equipment and technology for their after-school homework and tutoring program.

Scott County Boys and Girls director Amanda Falconer said, “We are excited and thankful to the Arvest Foundation for the opportunity to enhance our computer lab with updated equipment and technology. This will increase the number of children we are able to help, as well as being able to help them in new and improved ways.”


Arvest branch manager Shelley Buckles said, “The Scott County Boys and Girls Club is the only after-school youth-serving organization in Scott County, and when we learned of the need for more computers to be able to help more students with tutoring and homework, we knew this was something we wanted to be a part of to help with the education of the youth. We are pleased to provide this grant for the Scott County Boys and Girls Club and invest in the future of the children of Scott County.”
