Cecil Perkins Memorial Scholarship Endowment Established with SWOSU Foundation


A memorial scholarship endowment in honor of former long-time athletic director Cecil Perkins was recently established with the Southwestern Oklahoma State University Foundation on the Weatherford campus.

Patti Perkins, wife of Perkins, worked with Jennifer Dickey of the SWOSU Foundation office to establish the endowment that will benefit married students who are majoring in education and participating in athletics.

Additionally, his golf teams qualified for a combined nine national tournaments.
