RECAP: School Choice Thunder Night

March 11, 2012 J

Last Friday, March 9, AFP-OK partnered with the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs (OCPA) and the Friedman Foundation to sponsor the School Choice Thunder Night. We set up a table outside the arena to pass out informational school choice literature, as well as to give school choice t-shirts and tickets to families of special needs students who participate in the Lindsey Nicole Henry Scholarship Program.

The special needs students taking advantage of the school choice scholarships were invited to high-five the players as they came out of the tunnel before the game and at halftime. This was an awesome opportunity that they were excited about.

Several families thanked us for the opportunity to attend the game free of charge and also thanked us profusely for our support of school choice. Multiple families shared compelling stories of how school choice has helped their special needs students thrive.
