 “Oklahoma Educators Credit Union supports educators and their efforts to bring imaginative and innovative learning projects to their classrooms,” Cindy White, OECU President said. “That’s why we began our Teacher Grant Program – it’s our way to help Oklahoma teachers bring new projects to life.”  

The grants were awarded last week at OECU’s Teacher Grant Banquet held on the Reno campus of Francis Tuttle Technology Center in Oklahoma City.
