Through this philanthropic gift, Mr. Paul Bass, and First United Bank have shown their continued commitment to the betterment of Oklahoma Baptist University and Shawnee.
The $25,000 gift provided to the School of Business will help to establish a student managed fund for hands on investment learning. The emphasis for such a contribution is to encourage others to donate to get the corpus up to $250,000. Over time the earnings will grow the value of the fund to a degree where it will provide scholarships to business students one day.
We encourage more of our private and corporate entities to help support such a worthy goal and to realize the value in partnering with such an outstanding university.
Most of all we wish to publicly thank First United Bank and Paul Bass for this exceptional donation.

Jerry Bayliss,
Secretary
Shawnee Economic Development Foundation
