Kathryn Lois Quattlebaum Scholarship
The Kathryn Lois Quattlebaum Scholarship was established by her classmates and will provide help to a young woman who might not otherwise be afforded the opportunity of a quality education.
Kathryn was respected for her achievements as a student at the Oklahoma College of Women in the early 1960s. She was recognized as a top scholar and acknowledged by the student body as possessing “ideal qualities.”
She continues to be admired by all who know her for her perpetual spirit, grace and determination in her 30 plus year battle with Multiple Sclerosis. She went to work for the Social Security Administration after graduation but her career was cut short in the 1970s by her health issues.
Kathryn grew up in Chickasha and was a graduate of Chickasha High School. She graduated from the Oklahoma College for Women with a degree in psychology in 1964. Her numerous accomplishments while a student at OCW include sophomore class vice president, vice president of Em Hi social club, junior class president and treasurer of Cap ‘N Bells. She participated in several major productions in speech and drama.
She was a member of the Interclub Council, Zeta Phi Eta and Pi Gamma Mu. Kathryn received the Outstanding Junior Award and gained membership in Hypatia, OCW’s honor society, during her junior year.
It was because of their admiration and love for Kathryn, the memories they have of their lives at OCW and the opportunity a scholarship could provide to a young woman who might not otherwise be afforded the opportunity of a quality education that classmates established the scholarship to honor Kathryn.
