**For Immediate Release**
Silent Auction Planned to Benefit OPSU Staff Scholarship
-released by OPSU Campus Communications 01-13-2006

Goodwell - A silent auction will be held on January 21, 2006 to benefit the OPSU Staff Scholarship fund. This event will be held during the Aggie and Lady Aggie home basketball games, which begin at 6:00 p.m. in Oscar Williams Field House. Plan to come out and support OPSU and bid on items such as gift certificates for food and services at local businesses. The winning bids will be announced at half time of the men’s game, which begins at 8:00 p.m.

The OPSU Staff Liaison Committee is holding this event in order to one day fund an endowed scholarship that would directly benefit OPSU staff members, their spouses, or their children. It is the first step in reaching the committee’s goal of endowing this scholarship so that it may be given every year and increased by future donations.

To be eligible for the scholarship, the staff member must have been employed by OPSU at least one year. Applicants must also be seeking a degree, enrolled in at least 6 credit hours, and maintain a 2.0 GPA. The scholarship is renewable each year in competition with other applicants with preference given to a staff member.

Any business or individual that wishes to donate an item for the auction may do so by contacting Tere Curtis at 580-349-1360. Cash donations may also be sent to Panhandle State Foundation, c/o Staff Scholarship, PO Box 430, Goodwell, OK 73939. The foundation also accepts memorial donations. The foundation notifies the family that you have made a donation in memory of their loved one.

OPSU basketball provides great family entertainment, and we hope to see you at the games and appreciate your participation in the silent auction on Saturday, January 21.
