Did you know North Texas is home to over 4,000 OC alumni? That's a large flock of Eagles. Because of our large base here, in 2003 some very dedicated alums founded the 1st OC Alumni Chapter.
Over the past 15 years , with your help, the North Texas Chapter has awarded over $250,000 in scholarships to some very deserving students from this area. With Gods blessing, your prayers and support we hope to do even more in the next 15 years. Come join us.
