Cameron Foundation earns Holliday grant
The Cameron University Foundation recently received a gift of $50,000 from the Helen W. Holliday Foundation in Lawton. The donation will be used to fund scholarships for Cameron students. Since 1988, the Helen W. Holliday Foundation has donated almost $520,000 to Cameron University.
The Helen W. Holliday Foundation was established in 1974 to provide support for educational, vocational, and rehabilitation purposes for young women in the Lawton-Fort Sill community. Helen W. Holliday was a Lawton native who spent much of her life in Los Angeles. She returned to Lawton in 1948 after marrying Arthur O. Holliday, early-day Faxon banker, postmaster, farmer and teacher. Following his death in 1956, Mrs. Holliday continued to operate the family farm on several sections of land in Comanche County. She passed away in 1972.
