Slaughter Family Establishes Scholarship

A new endowment fund has been established by Glenn H. Slaughter and the Slaughter family to create scholarship awards for students in the Meinders School of Business at Oklahoma City University.

The gift will provide annual recognition and financial assistance to a deserving student or students who are pursuing a degree in any area of business.

Glenn Hoyt Slaughter established the endowment along with his son Mark Slaughter, BS ’68, in honor of Mark’s brother, Kent Hoyt Slaughter. The Slaughter family hopes this gift serves as a legacy to Kent and a way to assist students pursuing a degree.

“Dad had a fondness for this place and wanted to provide support to young people, he thought it would be nice to help others along,” said Mark Slaughter. “Dad was a simple guy who loved his family, valued higher education and had a great work ethic.”

The Kent Hoyt Slaughter Memorial Endowed Scholarship was established from the Glenn Hoyt Slaughter Trust in the amount of $373,361.

Mark Slaughter said his family wanted to build on the opportunities available to students at the Meinders School of Business while highlighting the importance of giving back to the community.

“This wonderful gift by the Slaughter family will provide material resources for our students who will become the future business leaders in our community,” said Steven C. Agee, dean of the Meinders School of Business.
