DS)--The Enid Public School Foundation on Friday received the final installment of a $1 million-dollar scholarship from Ray Davis. The Vicki and Kevin Davis Scholarship, named for Davis’ children, provides funding to selected Enid High School seniors who are slated to attend Oklahoma State University or Northern Oklahoma College in the fall. Seniors who plan to attend a career or Vo-Tech institution are also eligible. Nine students are currently benefitting from the scholarship at various higher education institutes. The funds provided recently will give students pursuing a higher education $40,000 total, or $5,000 a semester.  Davis gave $500,000 in 2019 with the remaining funds set aside for donation in 2023. Davis has now decided to give the funds early to EHS scholars. Scholarship applications for Class of 2022 are due in the EHS counselor’s office by January 26, 2022. For more information or a copy of the application, students should visit their school counselors. Information is also available by contacting Janna Jackson at 580-977-4592 or foundation@enidk12.org.
