Rob Sellers, executive director of Oklahoma Scholarship Fund, presented Charise Sandoval, principal and head teacher of Muskogee Seventh-day Adventist Christian Academy, with a check for $53,940. This money will go toward helping students afford the private school experience. The OSF has helped 64 schools and raised $4 million in 2018.
Senator Dewayne Pemberton spoke of his tour of the school. This is the first year the new building has been in use. He said the "classrooms are awesome, light and bright" and the "gymnasium is great, a place many schools would be glad to have."
Tim Kripps, with the Oklahoma Education Department of the Seventh-day Adventist Oklahoma Conference and Charlie Daniels, a board member of OSF also were present.
There are 21 students in the school with three teachers, Sandoval, Audrey Fabriga and Svetlana Willbanks.
