The funds will be used for elementary S.T.E.M. programs

Bartlesville elementary students in Bartlesville area will have greater access to resources and enhanced educational opportunities thanks to a $10,000 donation from the Arvest Foundation.

Kyle Hubbard, president of Arvest Bank, recently presented the check at Wayside Elementary to Superintendent Chuck McCauley and Wayside principal Ken Copeland.

The funds will help local elementary schools ramp up their technology capabilities and allow the Bartlesville Public Schools to continue to expand S.T.E.M. programs through Project Lead the Way Launch Implementation.

“The Arvest Foundation’s generosity will allow us to create a more engaging learning experience for our elementary students,” said McCauley. “By expanding our capabilities, we’ve given our students and teachers an even greater avenue for success.”

“We are pleased to present this donation on behalf of the Arvest Foundation to support the Bartlesville Public Schools’ efforts to provide greater educational opportunities for students,” said Hubbard. “We are committed to our public school system and greatly appreciate the work our local teachers and administrators do daily to enrich the lives of their students. This donation is just one of many we have made throughout the area. It demonstrates the foundation’s ongoing commitment to education and to the children in the region.”

Over $60,000 has been contributed by the Arvest Foundation in the Bartlesville region to date.
