TULSA, Okla. — The Public Service Company of Oklahoma is funding learning opportunities for FFA students.

With the support of the AEP Foundation, PSO is giving $25,000 to FFA chapters throughout Green Country.

The money goes to STEM-related education (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).

“Most people think whenever they think of FFA, they think of horses, plows, hogs, all that stuff,” Sperry FFA President Stormy Weathers said. “I mean, there is so much more than that.”

The Oklahoma FFA Foundation will accept STEM after-school grant applications from June 3-July 1. To learn more about the application process, click here.

“There are many of our chapters who are limited to learning about technology via the internet and what they see on a screen. We are so excited about these grants that will give chapters the opportunity to have technology at their fingertips,” said Holly Blakey, Oklahoma FFA Foundation executive director. “Having equipment in their programs – and sharing among programs – will allow students hands-on learning with real life technology being used in the agricultural industry.”
