Campbells endow scholarship

ENID, Okla. — Supporting agriculture and education is not a new idea to Don and Wanda Campbell, of Jet.

The couple, who are both retired educators, established an endowed faculty chair in agriculture in 2007 at Northwestern Oklahoma State University.

With the growing demand for quality agriculture education programs, the Campbells’ gift helped to build the program Northwestern now offers.

With predictions the need for ag educators will continue to increase over the next several years, they decided to expand their support even further by endowing the newly established Don and Wanda Campbell Agriculture Education Scholarship.

“There is such a need for agriculture teachers, especially in our area, that Don and I decided to set up this scholarship to help meet that need,” Wanda Camp-bell said. “Helping future teachers is a good investment.”

The Campbells, both Northwestern alumni, have maintained close ties with the university by attending fine arts and athletic events over the years, as well as serving the Northwestern Foundation. Wanda is a member of the Northwest-ern Foundation’s Gover-nance Committee.

Full-time continuing ag-riculture education students with a minimum 2.5 cumulative grade point average are eligible for the Don and Wanda Campbell Ag Education Scholarship.

The scholarship may be applied toward university-related expenses, such as tuition, fees, room, board or books.

For information about investing in Northwestern students, call Skeeter Bird, Northwestern Foundation CEO, at (580) 327-8599 or email at aebird@nwosu. edu.
