Elementary students in the Greenwood area will get a boost to their STEM curriculum thanks to a $5,000 donation from the Arvest Foundation. 


The gift was announced today at East Pointe Elementary School in Greenwood. Jamie Skinner and Beth Presley of Arvest Bank were on hand to present the check.

The Arvest Foundation donation will allow the school to purchase various materials to create a collaborative STEM work space or “Makerspace” inside the school that fosters creativity, flexibility, and persistence through the process of problem-solving.  

"The incredible support provided by Arvest Bank has allowed us to provide a place where our students can explore, discover, and play while solving problems and experiencing learning firsthand,” said East Pointe Elementary principal Josh Ray. “Students at East Pointe are literally begging for more science and math, and we could have never experienced that without Arvest’s generosity. On behalf of every future East Pointe engineer, doctor, architect, and programmer, thank you so much."

Arvest branch manager Jamie Skinner said, “When East Pointe reached out to us with the details of what they were wanting to accomplish with their Makerspace, we knew that we wanted to be a part and help create this incredible experience for all of the students, and students to come. We are thankful that the Arvest Foundation was able to provide this grant for East Pointe and we’re looking forward to seeing this dream become a reality for them.”
