Answers to Prayer
KETCHUM, OKLA. – Two years ago, our school almost closed down because of the cost to keep it open, but the Opportunity Scholarship Fund saved Ketchum Adventist Academy (KAA). The Opportunity Scholarship Fund is a Scholarship Granting Organization that provides scholarships to Oklahoma K-12 students attending accredited private schools in our state. The scholarship funds are voluntarily provided to individual schools by private individuals and corporate donors. These donors receive state tax credits based upon their level of commitment to the school for their gifts. There were four people who chose to donate to this special program so that they would know exactly where their dollars went. It seemed too good to be true when we heard that there was an answer to prayer for donations through this program. We kept wondering what the catch was but there wasn't one.
The photo below shows the check that our school used to aide students with their tuition this school year. The check was presented to us by our State Representative Josh West, Senator Micheal Bergstrom and Rob Sellers of Opportunity Scholarship. I'm happy to know that we have a chance to not only help students this year, but get help for our students in the future with new donors to Opportunity Scholarship on behalf of KAA.
