On June 17, Dr. Bill Path, president of OSU Institute of Technology in Okmulgee, publicly announced the campaign for OSUIT’s future – OSUIT PROUD.

The campaign includes a $3 million goal for endowed OSUIT student scholarships and to contribute to the renovation of the historic Grand Old Post Office Building in downtown Okmulgee into student lofts.

Path announced the college-community partnership at the OSUIT Alumni Hall of Fame reception. Mark Mabrey, Andrew Harlan and Marilyn Sulivant are leading the OSUIT PROUD Campaign Committee. To date, $2.4 million has been raised.

“At Mabrey Bank, we are proud to join OSUIT in a campaign that will have such a positive impact for both OSUIT students and for our neighbors in Okmulgee,” said Mabrey, OSU ’06, OSUIT PROUD Campaign Chair and Mabrey Bank’s vice president of lending.

New scholarships will empower students who are economically disadvantaged and give needed assistance to working adults who wish to change or advance their careers, Mabrey said.

“OSUIT shares responsibility with the leadership of Okmulgee to support its economic success, including preparing its students to be a trained workforce. If Okmulgee thrives, so does OSUIT,” Path said. “This collaboration will lead to exciting outcomes and a very bright future — one we envision as Okmulgee’s brightest orange.”

The campaign is a bridge between OSUIT and the community that empowers students completing their educational goals and that further solidifies the institution’s presence in the fabric of Okmulgee.
