Costa Anderson receives Hays Scholarship

Costa Anderson Presented Donald Hays Scholarship

Northern Oklahoma College sophomore Costa Anderson was awarded the Donald R. Hays Basketball Scholarship during the Feb. 25 NOC Tonkawa Mavericks basketball game.
Costa, son of Bridget Smith, is an arts and science major who graduated from South Atlanta High School.
The scholarship award for $1,000 was established in 1991 by Eleanor Hays in memory of her husband Donald R. Hays, former University Preparatory School (UPS/NOC) and University of Oklahoma (OU) basketball player.
This annual scholarship is awarded to the male sophomore basketball player who has attained the highest grade-point average during his freshman year.
“Anderson is a very well-deserving student,” said Mavericks Head Coach Donnie Jackson. “He is also a very good person who takes his academics very seriously.”
The scholarship certificate was presented to Anderson by NOC President Dr. Cheryl Evans, NOCF Executive Director and Vice President for Development & Community Relations Sheri Snyder and Coach Jackson.
