Arvest has renewed its support of the Bartlesville Public Schools’ elementary STEM program, Project Lead the Way Launch, with a $15,000 donation from the Arvest Foundation.

Annah Fischer, Arvest Bank marketing manager, and Earl Sears, Arvest Bank business development representative, presented the contribution at the regular meeting of the Bartlesville Public Schools Board of Education in June.

The funds will help Bartlesville elementary schools ramp up their technology capabilities as they continue to expand STEM programs for all kindergarten through fifth-grade students with engineering modules in 2019-20 and 2020-21.

“The Arvest Foundation’s generosity will allow us to create a more engaging learning experience for our elementary students,” said Supt. Chuck McCauley. “By expanding our capabilities, we’ve given our students and teachers an even greater avenue for success.”  

“We are pleased to present this donation on behalf of the Arvest Foundation to support the Bartlesville Public Schools’ efforts to provide greater educational opportunities for local students,” said Sears. “We greatly appreciate the work our local teachers and administrators do daily to enrich the lives of their students. Arvest Bank and the Arvest Foundation are committed to education and children in the Bartlesville region.”
