Arvest Bank recently awarded three Greater Tulsa area teachers as winners of Arvest’s We Love OK Teachers campaign, including Jenks Northwest Elementary’s Sarah Beyer.
Beyer received $500 for supplies to further the education of her students.

Beyer plans to use the money to purchase math supplies that will better help her students to visualize concepts as well as books and supplies for STEM kits. 

“The items I plan to purchase will support my students this year as well as my future students,” says Beyer. “Thank you Arvest Bank for supporting Oklahoma teachers.”

The additional winners are Judy Mullins, with Lynn Wood Elementary in Broken Arrow, 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.
