Hobby Lobby to donate St. Gregory campus to Oklahoma Baptist


December 8, 2019

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Hobby Lobby says it plans to donate the campus of the now-defunct St. Gregory's University to nearby Oklahoma Baptist University.

The Oklahoma City-based craft retailer and its founding Green family announced Friday that they've scheduled a Wednesday news conference to formally announce details of the donation.

St. Gregory's was founded in 1875 as a Roman Catholic mission run in Atoka, Oklahoma, by Benedictine monks. The monks founded a college in Konawa, Oklahoma, in 1877, and moved to Shawnee, Oklahoma, in 1910 after a fire destroyed the original college building.
