SWOSU-Sayre Awards Career Day Scholarships
More than 240 seniors from 11 area high schools recently attended Career Day at Southwestern Oklahoma State University-Sayre, and high schools that registered were awarded SWOSU-Sayre scholarships.
Schools receiving scholarships were Sayre, Elk City, Merritt, Reydon, Sweetwater, Erick, Hammon, Cheyenne, Canute and Cordell High Schools.
"We want to make local high school students and school officials aware of academic programs and career opportunities available through the university," said event organizer Kim Seymour. "Career Day allows us to do that."
After breakfast and campus tours, attendees were officially welcomed by SWOSU-Sayre Dean Dr. Jim James. Representatives from the Sayre and Weatherford campuses then gave 20-minute presentations regarding 14 different academic programs. Following the informational presentations, the students were treated to lunch and door prizes.
Career Day Scholarship recipients will be determined by each high school counselor.
This is the 10th consecutive year SWOSU-Sayre has hosted Career Day.
