ECU STUDENT HUDSON RECEIVES JELTZ SCHOLARSHIP

East Central University student McKenzie Hudson (right) was recently awarded the Wyatt F. and Mattie M. Jeltz Memorial Scholarship by Jeltz Scholarship Foundation Trustee Chairman James L. Mosley. McKenzie is a biology major with a kinesiology minor from Ada. Upon graduation from ECU, she plans to attend the physical therapy program at Langston University. This scholarship was established by an endowment and is incorporated by the State of Oklahoma. Mr. and Mrs. Jeltz were black Oklahomans who devoted their lives to education, employment opportunities and community service until their deaths in 1975 and 1977, respectively. They were vitally interested in assisting young people, particularly black Americans, displaying strong academic ability, in acquiring an education and a better life.
