In April 1985, more than 200 Oklahoma Christian supporters gathered to celebrate the completion of a successful campaign to raise $2.5 million to upgrade and expand the university’s library.
The Oklahoma City Campaign for the library was part of a $5 million library improvement package. The balance of the funds was solicited from individuals and foundations throughout the state and the nation. The library project was a part of Oklahoma Christian’s $50 million “With Wings as Eagles” Campaign, which provided $20 million in capital improvements for the campus.
President J. Terry Johnson thanked those who contributed and said, “The pledges from Oklahoma City business people are a strong vote of confidence in Oklahoma Christian and the job it is doing in educating young people.”
