STARSTRUCK/VALORY MUSIC CO. artist REBA McENTIRE recently gave more than $60,000 to the SPAVINAW OKLAHOMA SCHOOL BOARD. The school needed urgent repairs and REBA stepped up to help the school.
Board member GUY ALLOWAY said: "I just kept going down the list. I called numbers for OPRAH and BILL GATES. I was on number 28 or 32, you know, you just lose count. I had no reasonable expectations of success, but you just keep on."
A representative for REBA said ALLOWAY could expect a check in about five days and two checks, one for $60,000 and one for $1,000 arrived.
"I called [REBA's representative] and told him what an amazing act of kindness had just occurred. I told him I wanted to tell everyone and give her the credit she deserves. I wanted people to know that her OKLAHOMA spirit still lives."
