“We believe strongly in OKWU’s mission and that’s why we support it financially. OKWU has had a special place in our hearts since we met each other there 50 years ago. In these challenging times, we need a school like OKWU more than ever. We challenge everyone to support it financially to ensure it can continue to fulfill its mission.”
