Two students from western Oklahoma have been awarded scholarships from Southwestern Oklahoma State University.

Jolie Walker of Hammon is the recipient of the 2022 Sue Goodall Loyall Memorial Scholarship.

Walker, a 2022 graduate of Hammon High School, will attend SWOSU in the fall as a freshman and major in Finance.

The Sue Goodall Loyall Memorial scholarship program was established by Scott Loyall in honor and memory of Sue Goodall Loyall. The program provides scholarship assistance each year to a graduating senior from Butler, Hammon, Cheyenne, Thomas-Fay-Custer, Leedey or Reydon.

The university also announced that the Academic Year 2022-23 Melody Ashenfelter Scholar is Bailey Hunter of Arapaho. The Ashenfelter Scholarship is awarded annually to a business student at SWOSU.
