OKLA. CITY — Because good schools mean a well-prepared workforce, stable and prosperous neighborhoods, steady property values, and a positive, connected and committed community, the Northwest Chamber is presenting a “State of Our Schools” Luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 17 at the new Northwest Library, 5600 N.W. 122nd, Oklahoma City.

Superintendents from Putnam City, Bethany, Oklahoma City and Deer Creek Public School Districts are invited to address the business and community leaders attending and offer a report on the achievements and challenges of their schools over the last year. 

Having an opportunity to learn about these needs first-hand also will help local businesses connect directly and become more involved with working with the schools and supporting education. Chamber member businesses who already are engaged will be highlighted as well.

The event is open to the public and people can register for the lunch for $20 at 789-1256 or online at www.nwokc.com. Registration by April 15 is required for everyone wanting a seat at the lunch. Some free seating also will be available.
