CLAREMORE, Okla. – Cherokee Nation officials donated $15,000 to Claremore-Sequoyah Schools on July 20 to purchase the school’s first gymnasium air-conditioning unit.

The Rogers County school has about 1,300 students enrolled in grades pre-kindergarten through 12.

Principal Chief Bill John Baker and Dist. 14 Tribal Councilor Keith Austin, of Claremore, visited presented the check to Claremore-Sequoyah Schools Superintendent Dr. Terry Saul.

“We are very appreciative of this partnership between the Sequoyah School district and the Cherokee Nation,” Saul said. “Our school and community would like to extend a heartfelt thank-you to Chief Baker and Councilor Austin for hearing our need and providing for our school and community.”

In operation since 1908, the gymnasium hosts events such as athletic events and practice to community events.

“Unfortunately, problems like air-conditioning upgrades are a budget item that most of our local schools can’t afford right now,” Austin said. “Thanks to the partnerships that we continue to have with Claremore-Sequoyah and other local schools, we are able to make a positive difference in the lives of all children in our communities.”

Funding for this donation came from the tribe’s special project funds.
