SWOSU Student Wins Award from Jeltz Scholarship Foundation


Jeltz Scholarship Foundation

Southwestern Oklahoma State University student Ashland Jordon of Oklahoma City (Putnam City) recently received a scholarship from The Wyatt F. and Mattie M. Jeltz Scholarship Foundation, based in Oklahoma City. Making the presentation on the Weatherford campus was Foundation Trustee Kenneth Arinwine. Mr. & Mrs. Jeltz were black Oklahomans who devoted their lives to education, employment opportunities and community service until their deaths in 1975 and 1977, respectively. They were vitally interested in assisting young people, particularly Black-Americans displaying strong academic ability, to acquire an education and a better life.
