Goodwell, Okla. — Twenty-seven business and higher education partnerships throughout the state were recently recognized as innovative collaborations that further the education of Oklahoma’s workforce.

A historic partner with Oklahoma Panhandle State University, Anchor D Bank, formerly The First National Bank of Texhoma, was established Feb. 22, 1906. Panhandle State’s 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, courtesy of Anchor D Bank. Anchor D is a closely held, family-owned bank with quality service as the focus of the organization. The name reflects an area ranch founded in 1878 with headquarters in Texhoma, Goodwell, and Guymon matching the modern locations of the bank offices. The partnership will allow Panhandle State to modernize the football stadium, creating a multi-use athletic facility for both football and soccer, which 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.

“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,” said Panhandle State President Dr. Tim Faltyn.

The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education’s Regents Business Partnership Excellence Award is designed to highlight successful partnerships between higher education institutions and businesses and to further cultivate the higher learning environment through State Regents’ Economic Development Grants.
