Please contribute to
Dr. Elaine Smokewood's Memorial Scholarship

Many alumni have expressed a desire to keep alive Dr. Smokewood's contributions as an educator and a lover of literature through a memorial scholarship. Because of alumni activity and a generous start-up donation from University President Robert Henry, the building of the scholarship is well underway.
We hope you will consider contributing, too. Just go to OCU's online giving site and choose "Elaine Smokewood Endowed Scholarship Fund" from the menu of gift options.
Thank you!
