Henry Zarrow International offers many opportunities for students. The school is focused on providing top-notch education and experiences.
Zarrow has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for its efforts to help homeless veterans End Veteran Homelessness Challenge.
Zarrow students collected cookware, houseware, cleaning supplies, and toiletries valued at more than $2,000. Those items were donated to the Eastern Oklahoma VA Health Care Systems Homeless Program, which in place to help veterans acquire housing.
According to Zarrow's principal Denise Marquez, the students took this challenge and owned it. "Henry Zarrow was a great philanthropist here in Tulsa. Our students do a great job representing what he and our school stand for", said Denise.
Zarrow students were presented with a certificate of appreciation for their efforts. The certificate was signed by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert L Wilkie. Eastern Oklahoma VA Healthcare System Medical Director Mark Morgan and Homeless Program Manager Melanie Stewart-Goldman attended the assembly to present the certificate.
"These students really represented Tulsa and Zarrow well. They have made a huge impact on the lives of our veterans",said Melanie. "These donations are extremely important, actually crucial. Many times we have the resources to get veterans into housing but lack the resources to fill them and make it feel like a home. Things like this are key to helping veterans feel like they have a home again".
Congratulations to the Zarrow student body on this major achievement!
