As a graduate and former member of the band at Moore High School, Paula Sue Gabrish says it was an easy decision to support the Moore High School Alumni Association Music Scholarship Fund at the Oklahoma
City Community Foundation.
When Paula Sue inherited oil and gas assets, her CPA advised her to make a charitable gift to help offset taxes. In 2010, she made a significant gift to the music scholarship fund that supports an award for a graduating senior who was a member of the band or choral group and plans to pursue a music degree.
"I've always wanted to do something for my high school," says Paula Sue. "When my CPA advised me to make a charitable gift, I immediately thought of the music scholarship."
Larry Haswell, a former band member and past treasurer of the association, said he had long envisioned creating a scholarship for band and vocal music students.
"Paula's generous gift to the music scholarship fund helped put into motion one of the alumni association's largest scholarship offerings," said Larry. "Paula's band experience has obviously inspired a willingness to give back in hopes that others will have a similar experience. Her support of this program honors her father and is a lasting tribute to her family."
