The Southwestern Oklahoma State University (SWOSU) Foundation, Inc., is hosting its 2nd annual charitable hunt on September 17 in Devol (OK), and SWOSU is delighted to announce that longtime SWOSU supporter CDL University, LLC is serving as the hunt’s Corporate Cooler sponsor.

Founded by Darin and Denise Miller, CDL University is a nationally-leading Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) training program based in Oklahoma City.

Darin and Denise are the proud parents of Johnson (SWOSU Class of 2019), Karber, Jesse, Foster, Isabella and Hudson.

The proceeds from the hunt will be allocated to the Dr. Ken Rose Memorial Fund, which exists to help SWOSU produce the next generation of conservationists, sportsmen and sportswomen, wildlife law enforcement officials, park rangers and many others.

“We are deeply grateful to CDL University and the Miller Family for this latest generous investment in SWOSU’s mission,” said SWOSU President Dr. Diana R. Lovell. “This Corporate Cooler sponsorship for our second annual charitable hunt will enhance our efforts to successfully raise funds and meaningfully leverage the university’s endowment to enhance student learning and faculty development in our Parks & Recreation Management program.”

This unique fundraising activity will be facilitated by BlackOak Farms, a full-service hunting operation that is integrated with traditional agriculture practices of farming and ranching.

The event will involve a sporting clay competition followed by a late afternoon/early evening dove hunt. Participants will be treated to a cocktail reception, dinner, and live auction and entertainment following the hunt.

Host and co-host opportunities offering substantial sponsor benefits remain but will close soon, and only a few individual hunter slots remain. Cocktail hour and dinner-only registration is also available for non-hunters who want to fellowship with SWOSU alumni and friends. For information on sponsorships, to register to hunt, and to see the entire event schedule, please visit and contact SWOSU Associate Director for Institutional Advancement Clarke Hale  at or 817-707-6795.

The SWOSU Charitable Hunt is being organized by the SWOSU Foundation, Inc., which was established in 1977 to promote philanthropy and distribute funds to support the activities and programs of SWOSU. Located on the Weatherford campus in the historic Burton House, the Foundation currently stewards nearly $31 million in assets for the benefit of SWOSU.
