Fort Gibson resident Jacob Scott was awarded a Founders’ Academic Scholarship at Oklahoma Baptist University for the 2014 academic year.

Presented in recognition of academic achievement, the Founders’ Academic Scholarship is an annual $11,000 scholarship which can be renewed for three additional years, making the honor worth a potential of $44,000.

A senior at Fort Gibson High School, Scott is a member of Teens4Christ, Yearbook Staff, and National Honor Society. He has been involved in volunteer organizations such as Mission Arlington and Paint the Town. Scott is a member of Southeast Baptist Church, and plans to seek a college degree in applied ministry. OBU President David Whitlock presented a certificate of recognition to each 2014 academic scholarship recipient during a Feb. 15 ceremony on the university’s campus.
