Alvin C. Heinrich
Alvin C. Heinrich, an Oklahoma farmer stockman, was not just a pew-warming supporter of Christian education. In the 1940's, he was the driving force behind moving a country school house to Enid to house the church school. In the late 1970's, with the present facilities outmoded and his own children past school age, he began another push to build a new two-room school with a gymnasium and kitchen facilities. This facility now stands as a tribute to the man who did more than just talk about the need for Christian education. Six of his eight children attended Southwestern Junior College and Academy for a total of twenty-four years.
The Alvin C. Heinrich Memorial Scholarship is awarded to an elementary education major who is planning to teach in a Seventh-day Adventist church school.
