Oklahoma has given birth to some of country’s hottest stars. Happily for the locals, the singers don’t forget their roots. First, Reba McEntire fed 2,300 families by donating funds to a regional food bank. Now, Carrie Underwood has raised $350,000 for her former school district.

Underwood set up the Checotah Animal, Town, and School (C.A.T.S.) Foundation specifically to fund her old stomping ground. According to Contact Music, four schools will benefit from the grant and are planning on using the funds to build better computer labs, buy musical instruments and new playground equipment.

The singer said about her charitable move, “Late last year (11) each of the schools created a list of their needs and I am so thrilled that the C.A.T.S. Foundation was able to fund it all. It gives me great joy knowing we are helping my hometown schools to offer an even better education to the students. They deserve it.”

They obviously did a great job raising Carrie. A talented vegan who gives back to education? We’d like to say thank you too.
