Northern Oklahoma College sophomore Jordan Phelps was awarded the Donald R. Hays Basketball Scholarship during the Feb. 17 Maverick basketball game.

Jordan, son of Brian and Stephanie Phelps, is an arts and science major who graduated from Broken Arrow High School.

The scholarship award for $1,000 was established in 1991 by Eleanor Hays in memory of her husband Donald R. Hays, former University Preparatory School (UPS/NOC) and University of Oklahoma (OU) basketball player.

This annual scholarship is awarded to the male sophomore basketball player who has attained the highest grade-point average during his freshman year.

“Jordan is a very well-deserving student,” said Mavericks Head Coach Donnie Jackson. “He is also a very good person who takes his academics very seriously.”

The scholarship certificate was presented to Phelps by NOC President Dr. Cheryl Evans, Development and Donor Relations Director Kirby Tickel-Hill and Coach Jackson.
