Loucile Bennett Evans
Loucile Evans graduated from OCW in 1934 with a bachelor’s degree in art. She served as a social worker in the Chickasha area until she moved, with her husband Arthur Evans, to Albuquerque, New Mexico. After Mr. Evans was discharged from the Army Air Corps, they returned to Chickasha with their son, Arthur T. Evans.
Loucile was a housewife, mother, friend, art teacher and artist in Chickasha for the next 39 years until her death in 1994. Her husband followed her in death in 1997, leaving behind their only son, Arthur “Art” Evans of Broken Arrow, also a graduate of OCLA (1968).
Evans loved art and teaching art until her death with china painting being her great passion. It is because of her love for art that this scholarship is dedicated with the hope that its recipient will carry forward her love and excitement.
“Mom, it is with great joy that I give this in your loving memory,” says her son.
This scholarship is to be given to a student(s) majoring in art, picked by the head of the art department. The recipient must be a student demonstrating a talent for art. If there is no longer an art department, a student of English or an education major shall receive this scholarship.
