The Russellville High School Choir will be able to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City thanks to a $5,000 donation from the Arvest Foundation.

The gift was announced today at the Russellville High School in Russellville. Shawn Bates, community bank president of Arvest Bank was on hand to present the check to Matthew Foy, choral director at Russellville High School, and Mark Gotcher, superintendent of the Russellville School District.

The Arvest Foundation donation to the Russellville Choir Boosters will help the students with the costs associated with this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of performing at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

 “The $5,000 donation from the Arvest Foundation will help make students' dreams of performing at Carnegie Hall become reality,” Foy said. “With this generous donation, we will be able to provide the students with some meals and transportation while in New York City. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our students and I would like to thank Arvest for helping this dream come to fruition.”

“We are pleased to present this donation on behalf of the Arvest Foundation to support the Russellville Choir Boosters and the Russellville School District who have dedicated their time to providing and improving the lives of our students in the Russellville area,” Bates said. “This donation is just one of many we have made throughout the area. It demonstrates the foundation’s ongoing commitment to our local community and support to the education of our students.”
