Lawton, OK (KFDX/KJTL) – Friday was a big day for students at Comanche Academy in Lawton as they received a scholarship from Comanche Cares.

The donation came from the proceeds of the annual Comanche Entertainment Golf Tournament that was held in September.

Students performed native dance and were awarded with a giant cardboard check in the amount of five thousand dollars.

Comanche Academy is a free public charter school that operates with the Comanche culture language as its instructional platform.
