Goodwell, Okla. — Oklahoma Panhandle State University Aggie Athletics will soon see facility upgrades at both the football stadium and the basketball arena thanks to the largest single gift in Aggie Athletic history given by Anchor D Bank and Anchor D Ranch.

Panhandle State officials announced the gift on Saturday, October 28 during the Homecoming Festivities. At the donors’ request, the amount was not disclosed.

Panhandle State President Dr. Tim Faltyn was thrilled to announce the generous donation. “This generous gift also highlights the decades long partnership between Panhandle State, Anchor D Bank and Anchor D Ranch. The Freeman Family has been a blessing to this University for many years and we are honored to put their name on the stadium and arena.”

The gift will allow Panhandle State to modernize the football stadium creating a multi-use athletic facility for both football and soccer which in turn opens the door to add a soccer program at Panhandle State. It also allows for the facility to be shared with Goodwell High School offering students at all levels the opportunity to play in a modern facility.

Both the stadium and the arena are expected to see scoreboard upgrades as well.

A historic partner with Panhandle State, Anchor D Bank, formerly The First National Bank of Texhoma, was established February 22, 1906. The name reflects an area ranch founded in 1878 which is similar to the time period this bank was opened. The ranch had headquarters in Texhoma, Goodwell, and Guymon, which is also where the bank's offices are located. Anchor D Bank is a closely held, family owned bank with quality service as the focus of the organization.
