Goodwell, OK - The Panhandle State Foundation held their annual appreciation banquet on Tuesday, November 15, 2005 at 7:00 p.m. in the Student Union Ballroom on the campus of Oklahoma Panhandle State University. Approximately 140 people attended including the honored guests, Foundation Board of Directors, OPSU professors, university staff and several scholarship recipients. The Foundation banquet marks the beginning of the annual fund drive, honors this year’s scholarship recipients and inducts new members into the Foundation’s Distinguished Contributor Honor Roll. The 2005 inductees were Mr. and Mrs. Max Baggerly and PTCI. The special entertainment provided by OPSU’s Neon Voices and the OPSU Jazz Band was highly applauded.

Mr. Steve Baggerly presented the Distinguished Contributor plaque to his parents, Max and Dorothy Baggerly. The Baggerlys have a long-standing commitment to education, and most recently, they purchased the naming rights of one of the OPSU apartment buildings in honor of Bob and Kathryn Sexton. Their love of education and their support of OPSU are acknowledged by their induction to the Panhandle State Foundation Distinguished Contributor Honor Roll.

Mr. Chris Purdy both presented and accepted the Distinguished Contributor plaque for Panhandle Telephone Cooperative, Inc. and its members. This local company is owned by the community it serves and realizes its responsibility to support its neighbors. PTCI has been consistently involved in supporting Oklahoma Panhandle State University in numerous ways. OPSU athletics, campus clubs, the CIS program and the OPSU Rodeo are all continually assisted by financial support from PTCI. The association does not stop there; PTCI employs many OPSU graduates. The Panhandle State Foundation recognizes PTCI’s time, interest, commitment and financial support to the Foundation, OPSU, and its students by inducting it into the Distinguished Contributor Honor Roll.
