November 14, 2008
D.M. Sokolosky of Owasso has given $25,000 to the Southwestern Oklahoma State University College of Pharmacy in Weatherford.
Sokolosky, a 1955 graduate of SWOSU, is a land developer.
“We are giving to the Southwestern Pharmacy Foundation as a ‘thank you’ to the school for the education received and the opportunity to establish a retail drug store in Owasso.”
The donation is part of the SWOSU College of Pharmacy $1 million FOCUS campaign, which includes raising money for academic program enrichment, scholarships and the College of Pharmacy’s museum.
“We are delighted to witness the growth and progress being made in the College of Pharmacy,” Sokolosky said. “We have encouraged several young students to attend SWOSU. We believe pharmacy is the best profession for a youth today, especially for women.”
Sokolosky, who also graduated from McAlester High School, was active in the Newman Club and Beta Tau Beta while in school at SWOSU. While in Owasso, he has been active in the Lions Club and chamber of commerce. His special interests include the Freedom Baptist Church and serving on the Rogers County Rural Water District for 40 years.
He and his wife, Phyllis, have four children and 17 grandchildren. Sons and daughters include: Dee and Shirley Sokolosky, Noble and Mary Sokolosky, Duke and Ann Weir, and Brent and Sue Scott.
