Claremore Scholarship Fundraising Breakfast Set for Dec. 11

The Rogers State University Foundation will host its annual Claremore Scholarship Fundraising Breakfast at 8 a.m., Thursday, Dec. 11 at the Centennial Center on the RSU campus.

Thanks to support from event sponsors, the RSU Scholarship Fundraising Breakfast is free, but RSVPs are required. Contributions are encouraged with proceeds directly supporting the foundation’s unrestricted scholarship program, which supports deserving students from all three RSU campuses. Proceeds from the scholarship breakfast, auction and other initiatives are expected to provide more than $600,000 in endowments, restricted and unrestricted scholarships directly benefitting RSU students this year.

“All proceeds from the scholarship breakfast go to deserving students who need a helping hand to pursue their dreams of earning a college degree,” said RSU President Dr. Larry Rice. “We’ve seen first-hand how student lives can be powerfully impacted through financial assistance, which symbolizes faith others place in their ability to earn a college degree.”

Rockin G Ranch is serving as the event’s presenting sponsor.

Platinum level sponsors are Ron and Meredith Lessley. Gold level sponsors include Baker Hughes and Pat Reeder. Silver level sponsors include Win and Kay Ingersoll, Kissee Ford and Bobby and Julie Helen Latham.
