Mark’s Scholarship Program
This scholarship was established in 2010 in recognition of dedicated service to the Counseling & Recovery Services of Oklahoma by Larry Marks, MSW, MBA, in his 18 years as Executive Director. During his leadership, Counseling & Recovery Services experienced rapid growth and added services like Wraparound Tulsa and the CALM Center.
The initial funds for this scholarship were generously donated by staff, board members and friends of the agency to commemorate Larry’s retirement. Larry’s career focused on improving the lives of others through mental health services, nonprofit leadership, teaching and mentoring. He was honored by the Mental Health Association Oklahoma for his contributions to the field of mental health.
The purpose of this scholarship is to offer financial assistance to Counseling & Recovery Services of Oklahoma clients to enhance learning and foster recovery.
