Pryor Public Schools teachers got funding help in their efforts to apply for and receive grants thanks to a $5,000 donation from the Arvest Foundation.

The gift was announced recently at a check presentation at Arvest Bank. The funds will go to the Pryor Academic Excellence Foundation (PAEF), which serves as a partner with Pryor Public Schools by funding grants to teachers to support educational programs and opportunities for all students in the town’s school system.

“The Arvest Foundation donation will boost our foundation’s ability to provide funding for the quality grants submitted by teachers in Pryor Public Schools,” said Claudia Trout, PAEF trustee. “We are thankful for this investment in the future of Pryor School students.” 

“We are pleased to present this donation on behalf of the Arvest Foundation to support PAEF’s efforts to provide greater educational opportunities for students in Pryor,” said Heather Cabales, Mortgage Loan Officer at Arvest Bank. “This donation is just one of many we have made throughout the area. It demonstrates the foundation’s ongoing commitment to education and to the children in the region.”
