Sophomore earns Jeltz Scholarship

Connors State College sophomore Tierra Blue was awarded the Wyatt F. and Mattie M. Jeltz Scholarship, a media release states.

The award was presented by Foundation Chairman Dr. James Mosley. Mosley visited with Blue about the history and meaning behind the scholarship.

“Jeltz wanted to make a difference,” Mosley said. “Mr. and Mrs. Jeltz were black Oklahomans who devoted their lives to education, employment opportunities and community service. They were interested in assisting young people, particularly black Americans, to acquire an education and a better life.”

The Jeltz Scholarship Foundation was established by an endowment and is incorporated by the state of Oklahoma. The Foundation provides scholarships to assist students in paying college related expenses such as tuition, fees, room and board, books and supplies, loan repayment and more. Scholarships are awarded annually in February and October. Application deadlines are Dec. 20 and Aug. 15. Applications can be picked up in the Connors State College Financial Aid office.
