Arvest Bank recently awarded three Greater Tulsa area teachers as winners of Arvest’s We Love OK Teachers campaign, including Lynn Wood Elementary’s Judy Mullins.

Mullins received $500 for supplies to further the education of her students.

She plans to purchase a rolling cart to transport work from school to home along with books for each of her Tier 3, Title 1 students. 

“Thank you so much for your encouragement and support to all teachers in Oklahoma,” Mullins said. “I am honored and humbled to be a recipient of $500 to use in my classroom and other classrooms in our buildings.”

The additional winners are Jenks Northwest Elementary’s Sarah Beyer and Dawna Jones, with Tulsa Public Schools’ McClure Elementary.

The Arvest initiative to honor educators from a pool of more than 90 communities throughout the state by awarding more than $15,000 in prize money was launched in October. The campaign awarded a total of 33 teachers statewide.
