NWOSU's 110/100 Centennial Committee
kicking off Oklahoma Flag Project


Sponsor an Oklahoma flag at NWOSU -- receive the flag at the end of our celebration!

During the 2007-08 school year, Northwestern Oklahoma State University proudly will be flying a number of Oklahoma flags on its Alva campus in recognition of the state's Centennial celebration and Northwestern's 110th anniversary.

Tentative plans are underway for a similar project on the Enid and Woodward campuses.

Individuals and/or businesses are welcome to sponsor State of Oklahoma flags for $50 each to be flown on the Northwestern campus. The flags will be set out on poles on the lawn during special dates at the university, such as the first day of classes, the original first day of classes’ commemoration on Sept. 20, commencement exercises and other determined dates, so the flags will not be displayed every day.  Read more...

Members of the 2007 graduating class from the Northwestern Oklahoma State University-Woodward campus present Dr. Deena Fisher (left), dean of that campus, with a plaque of appreciation Wednesday. Making the presentation are Karen Charmasson, Cathy Coleman and Pete Laughlin. Because the students at the Woodward campus are part of the Centennial class, they wanted to do something special for Dr. Fisher. The plaque includes all of the Woodward campus senior's names along with a thank you to Dr. Fisher, staff and all ITV professors. Class members also received special permission to have the Oklahoma Centennial and Northwestern 110/100 Centennial logos placed on the plaque. Dr. Fisher shares this token of their appreciation with all of the ITV professors. The special message on the plaque reads "For your patience, professionalism, knowledge and understanding of the nontraditional students of the Spring Class of 2007."
