Committee of 100 - OSSM at Autry Technology Center
The Enid Chamber Committee of 100 provides an opportunity for members to make an additional financial contribution that is designated for a local educational purpose.

In recent years your contributions have supported important educational causes such as school bond campaigns, concurrent enrollment and college scholarships.

Please consider adding $100 or more to your Enid Chamber of Commerce investment. This year your contribution will help provide funding for the Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics Regional Center at Autry Technology Center. The OSSM Regional Center provides enhanced educational opportunities for gifted high school juniors and seniors. During this time of budget shortages, the OSSM Regional Center is increasingly dependent on private donations. Your donation will help support our best and brightest. About 70% of the students in this program end up staying in or returning to the Enid area.

Thank you to our members who have already supported this year's Committee of 100 project!
