Google Provides $100,000 Education Grant to Chouteau-Mazie School District
In early May, Google announced plans to invest more than $75 million in Oklahoma in 2022 during an event at its data center in Pryor. Google has called Oklahoma home for more than a decade, and the company is continuing to invest in its Mayes County data center. Nationally, Google plans to invest approximately $9.5 billion in offices and data centers and create at least 12,000 new full-time Google jobs across the U.S. this year.

“Google’s offices and data centers provide vital anchors to our local communities and help us contribute to their economies. As we embrace more flexibility in how we work, we believe it’s more important than ever to invest in our campuses and that doing so will make for better products, a greater quality of life for our employees, and stronger communities,” said Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and Alphabet. “That’s why we’re planning to invest approximately $9.5 billion in U.S. offices and data centers this year, creating more than 12,000 Google jobs in communities across the country.”

Since its last major announcement in Oklahoma, Google has created more than 300 jobs and invested an additional $1+ billion — bringing its total investment in its Pryor data center to $4.4 billion. To date, the facility has created jobs for more than 800 people who work in a variety of full-time and external supplier roles, including computer technicians, engineers, and various food services, maintenance and security roles. Since 2011, Google’s long-term commitment to buy renewable energy in Oklahoma has also spurred the construction of $1.3 billion in new energy infrastructure in the state.

“Google’s continued investment in Pryor creates a ripple effect of growth throughout our community,” Pryor Mayor Larry Lees said. “When Google expands, the growth isn’t limited to the campus. Our schools, businesses, and nonprofits all share in Google’s success, and we are thrilled to see the momentum continue. We’re proud to say the Internet lives in Pryor.”

Google also announced it is partnering with the State of Oklahoma Department of Human Services to help Oklahomans develop digital skills to grow their careers. Through the Google Career Certificate program, Oklahomans will have the opportunity to learn job-ready skills that prepare them for fields such as data analytics, digital marketing & e-commerce, IT support, project management, and user experience (UX) design. Interested learners can explore the program at https://beaneighbor.ok.gov/s/.

Additionally, Google announced a grant to fund education programs for nearby Chouteau-Mazie Public Schools.

“Google recognizes the intrinsic relationship and the cohesive collaboration between business and education. The capital investment by Google at MidAmerica Industrial Park has transformed K-12 education and has created generational change by narrowing the opportunity gap for students in Mayes County,” said MidAmerica’s CAO David Stewart. “Today, Google announced a $100,000 education grant for the Chouteau-Mazie School District which will foster ingenuity and encourage a school-driven and school-designed program to increase the upward mobility of its students.”
