TULSA, Oklahoma -- Over 50 Tulsa and Porter school teachers recently received news from U.S. Cellular that their classroom projects have received funding through the company's 'Calling All Teachers' campaign.

In a news release, the company said a donation of $25,277 will benefit more than 2,700 students in Tulsa and Porter combined.

U.S. Cellular says it is focusing its giving on education and the pressing needs of schools. 'Calling All Teachers' is one of the initiatives the phone company developed to offer help to area schools.

"Teachers play a big role in the future of our children," said Tommy Arens, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in Oklahoma. "We are glad to support them because we know they work hard to make every child's learning experience meaningful and fun."

Teachers submitted a list of classroom projects that ranged from the basic to the technically advanced.
