KGWA Local News Monday

FR)—Talk 100.9 KGWA and My Country 103.1 KOFM  extend a big thank you to all of the people that came out, and all of the generous sponsors that made the inaugural Oklahoma Men Count presented by Integris Health event on Saturday such a great success. Special thanks to Evans on West Willow that hosted the event and provided lunch, as well as The Robert Allen Band that served hours of great live music. The great news is we raised thousands of dollars to benefit Oklahoma Proton Pals, Integris Health Foundation, and the Testicular Cancer Foundation to continue the fight against men’s cancer and assist those who are dealing with it.

ME)--Medicaid enrollment is now open and local leaders are urging eligible people to apply. In June 2020, voters in Oklahoma passed State Question 802, which expanded Medicaid eligibility to include low-income adults. The state’s Medicaid program, SoonerCare, covered children, pregnant women, elderly adults and disabled individuals in the past, but under the expanded eligibility guidelines, more than 200,000 Oklahomans will now qualify, according to the Oklahoma Health Care Authority, which oversees the program. Allison Seigars, executive director of Rural Health Projects, told Enid News and Eagle the expansion will help improve overall health care for community members in Enid. Adults aged 19-64 whose income is 138% of the federal poverty level or lower (an estimated annual income of $17,796 for an individual or $36,588 for a family of four) are eligible to apply. Those who are newly eligible will receive the same benefits, which will go into effect on July 1, as current Medicaid recipients. To apply, go to www.mysoonercare.org, call the SoonerCare Helpline at (800) 987-7767, fill out an English or Spanish paper application and mail it to the address on the application, or go through one of OHCA’s partner agencies.

PA)—Security National Bank of Enid once again will reward five lucky area students for their good grades with the SNB Pays for A’s program. Since 2002, thousands of report cards have been submitted. The bank sponsors the program twice a year, once for spring semester grades and once for fall semester grades. The program is open to students in grades 3 through 12. Public and private school students are encouraged to participate. Students will have until 5:00 p.m. June 18 to take their report cards to any of Security National Bank’s three locations. The bank will make a copy of the report card and place it in a hopper. Four cards will be drawn from the hopper. Those four students will receive $10 for each A and $5 for each B on their spring 2021 semester grades. Individual grades from each nine-week section will not be considered. All students entering their grades will receive a coupon for a frosted drink or milkshake from Chick-fil-A of Enid. In addition to the four students who will be “paid for their A’s,” one card will be drawn from the hopper for a $150 savings account with the bank.
