Members of the Oklahoma National Guard will now have the cost of their tuition, fees and textbooks covered when attending Seminole State College. Beginning with the fall semester, which starts Aug. 14, SSC is extending textbooks waivers to add to the benefits members of the National Guard receive through the Oklahoma National Guard Educational Assistance Program (EAP).
“In appreciation of their service, we wanted to extend textbook waivers to students who qualify for EAP. We want to ease the financial burden of obtaining course materials,” SSC Vice President for Fiscal Affairs Melaine Rinehart said.
From July 10 to July 13, the Seminole State College Talent Search/FOCUS grant program held their annual residential camp on the College’s campus. Forty-seven 9th and 10th graders from 15 different area schools were in attendance and were able to experience team building, leadership exercises, cultural activities and outdoor adventures.
During the camp, Talent Search/Focus students toured and watched a performance at the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma.
Students also enjoyed white water rafting at Riversport OKC (pictured) and a trip to Frontier City. For more information about the Talent Search Program, please visit http://www.sscok.edu/sponsored-grant-programs/talent-search/ or call 405-382-9709.
