Carrie Coppernoll Writes about Our Chess Club

Carrie Coppernoll

Carrie Coppernoll wrote a column today for The Oklahoman, Oklahoma City's daily newspaper. I wrote her about our chess club and the fact that we needed to raise funds to buy some T-shirts for the students with the club logo, designed by my brother Rick, on it.

I met Carrie when she came to speak at one of the Oklahoma County Democrat's Friday Luncheon's. Her columns appear in the "MyNewsOK" section of The Oklahoman which covers local and community news.

If you would like to help us, donations can be mailed to Oklahoma Centennial High School, c/o Lynn Green, 9017 N University, Oklahoma City, OK 73114. Checks can be made out to OCHS Chess. Donors of $100 or more will have their name or company name put on the back of the team shirts.
