Millwood Public Schools receives $116,000 from Paycom, benefitting marching band, music program

Funding supports budding marching band program, adds needed instruments and creates educational opportunities

OKLAHOMA CITY –  Paycom Software Inc. (NYSE:PAYC),  a leading provider of HR software, gave $116,000 to the Millwood Enrichment Foundation as part of a two-year commitment to the school district. The donation is an investment in the future of Millwood Public Schools and brings new resources that support ongoing and new educational programming. One specific area the funding will impact is Millwood’s expanding marching band program. 

“We greatly appreciate this generous donation from Paycom,” said Milo Wilson, president of Millwood Enrichment Foundation. “The funding will help to provide ongoing support for programs at the district and further improve the quality of education in our schools, specifically to improve our music education programs and provide new instruments for students who participate in band.” 

Millwood’s marching band has grown from around a dozen students in 2019 to over 70 students from grades 6-12 today. The first installment of the two-year financial gift from Paycom of $54,000 will directly support this important program. 

“The funding will allow us to strategically invest in music education programs that research has shown supports students’ success in other academic areas, like reading and math,” said Dr. Cecilia Robinson-Woods, superintendent of Millwood Public Schools. “Paycom’s investment into our music education supports Millwood in its efforts to continue to build champions in the classroom, in the community and in life!”

Paycom regularly champions sustainable programs, including educational causes, that ensure basic needs are met and encourage a brighter future for all.

“Supporting initiatives that give back to sustainable organizations is key to our community efforts,” said Jason Bodin, senior director of marketing and communications at Paycom. “Music creates opportunities to innovate, collaborate and show creativity, and studies show positive outcomes for students who participate in band and other extracurricular activities. We’re grateful for the opportunity to contribute to such important programs.”
