Truity Education Foundation Contributes $65,000 to BPS Foundation Initiatives

The Truity Education Foundation continues its loyal support of the Bartlesville Public Schools Foundation (BPS Foundation) with a generous $65,000 donation to support various BPS Foundation initiatives, including Bruins on the Run, the Bartlesville Alumni Association, and Bruin elementary t-shirts for all PK-5th grade students across Bartlesville Public Schools (BPS).  

This contribution includes substantial funding for the Foundation’s successful after school running and mentoring program for 5th graders as the program enters its 4th year; support for the growing Bartlesville Alumni Association, and funding to provide newly-designed Bruin t-shirts for elementary school students across the District, promoting the District’s strategic priority to unify all BPS elementary school students as Bruins.  The design for the new Bruin elementary t-shirt was created by the winner of the BPS Foundation’s design contest, Blake Coppinger, a 4th grade student at Wilson Elementary.  The design will be featured on t-shirts that will be provided to every elementary school student in the district at no cost.  

“With this generous contribution, we are able to impact thousands of students across the District, as well as reengage and reconnect our BPS alumni with each other, our schools, and our community,” said BPS Foundation Executive Director Blair Ellis. “We are so grateful for this support from our valued community partner and appreciate the Truity Education Foundation for continuing to prioritize public education in Bartlesville.”
