TULSA, Oklahoma -- Blue Cross and Blue Shield hope their dollars will help keep Oklahoma healthy.

On Tuesday, the insurance company donated $250,000 to the OSU College of Education. The money will help build new labs and fund a scholarship program for the school's college of education, where students learn to teach other Oklahoman's about healthy habits.

"A student or a graduate may plan the health programs at an area hospital. Many of the graduates will go on to nursing schools, physical therapy schools, athletic training and other programs," said Dean Pamela Fry, with the OSU College of Education.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield announced their donation at OSU Tulsa Tuesday afternoon.
