Wesleyan Christian School in Bartlesville received a $3,500 scholarship check this week from the Opportunity Scholarship Fund (OSF).

“We’re excited to get this scholarship,” said Rocky Clark, Wesleyan Christian School superintendent. “It will go to a student who couldn’t have enrolled at our school without it. He’s an honors student, and is active in sports and fine arts. This scholarship will really help him.”

Jan Boomer, the schools's director of development, says OSF scholarships will allow more lower-income students to attend Wesleyan Christian. “Wesleyan Christian now has over 320 students, pre-K though 12,” she said. “It provides a safe, Christian learning environment and excellent academics. Our average ACT score last year was 26.”

Boomer and OSF vice president Charlie Daniels expressed gratitude to state Senator John Ford and state Representative Earl Sears for supporting legislation in 2011 that enabled the creation scholarship-granting organizations like OSF.
