Oklahoma Christian Honored for Community Service
Oklahoma Christian again landed on the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
The honor roll, compiled by the Corporation for National and Community Service and the U.S. Department of Education, recognizes higher education institutions that reflect the values of exemplary community service and achieve meaningful outcomes in their communities.
“We are very excited and thankful to our students, faculty and staff for the selfless dedication they have for serving others and assuring that we receive our second honor roll designation,” President John deSteiguer said.
“They have enthusiastically participated in a number of local community service programs, including our students’ work with former at-risk Stanley Hupfeld Academy at Western Village in north Oklahoma City, work with local government for cleanup projects, nursing students conducting health fairs, 500+ OC employees and alumni in the OKC Memorial Marathon, 350 students participating in ‘Day in the City’ to clean up distressed areas of Oklahoma City, volunteering for Habitat for Humanity, T-Ball and soccer for children with disabilities, Special Olympics, and many others. We have more than 1,100 undergraduate students involved in ongoing service and ministry opportunities.”
