Promoting Education

At Ola Mae Brooks Foundation in Lancaster, TX, we understand the importance of education in today's ever-changing society.

Knowing that education is paramount to a successful career, future and fulfilling life, we are committed to helping individuals achieve academic success by earning their GEDs and providing them with the additional tools necessary to promoting higher learning.

We believe that we can provide the skills and support that help individuals struggling with literacy and other challenges related to their ability to learn.

We also believe that every person deserves an opportunity to have a better quality of life. Education is one component. We believe the second part requires healthy lifestyle choices. We teach people about good nutrition, meal planning and a daily fitness routine. We stress the importance of maintaining a healthy weight and having regular health assessments.

Get on a path to a better life today.

Ola Mae Brooks

Ola Mae Brooks was born to Henry Clay and Pinkie (Moore) Nolen on October 18, 1921 in Taft, OK. She attended public schools in Caney and Coffeyville, KS and attended a trade school.

Ola Mae’s passion and desire for assisting others was formed at an early age. As a member of Union Baptist Church, her commitment to family and community was cultivated through the teachings of church and family members and continued until June 7, 2009. Throughout her lifetime, she directed her attention and help to whomever needed it most – whether that was her own children, grandchildren or strangers. Her legacy is one of sacrifice, strong will and unwavering determination and will live on through this foundation.
