Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) received a check for $7,500 from the Arvest Foundation on Wednesday, Sept. 18, continuing their long-time commitment to business education at NEO. “We are very thankful for our ongoing partnership with Arvest,” said Joy Bauer, Chair of the Business and Technology Department. “These funds allow us to provide scholarships and extend leadership opportunities to our business and technology students.”
The Arvest Foundation is an outreach program that seeks to improve the life in local communities. Serving as the charitable arm of Arvest Bank, the Arvest Foundation provides local branches in the four-state area to support local organizations. This year’s donation marks the eighth year Arvest Bank of Miami has supported NEO business students. “In an area of fluctuating state appropriations, we are always looking for ways to establish and celebrate local partnerships,” said Dr. Mark Rasor, NEO Interim President. “We are honored by this gift and are excited for all the good that it will do within our business department.” In addition to the check presentation, the NEO Business Department shared updates on behalf of the accounting club, Phi Beta Lambda business club, and the Love’s Cup business competition team.
