Country music singer-songwriter Carrie Underwood never forgets her roots--- check out what she gave Checotah High School!

Country music superstar Carrie Underwood is known for her generosity and recently donated brand new stage curtains to the Checotah High Event Center.

“They look amazing and will give our students the great opportunity to experience a professional stage setting. Thank you, Carrie for supporting Checotah Schools and continuing to help make your hometown one of the best little towns in Oklahoma,” a hometown official shared with a local news outlet.

The “Cry Pretty” artist is all about helping out Checotah, Oklahoma via her own C.A.T.S. Foundation (Checotah Animal, Town, and School Foundation), which was founded in 2009. From student scholarships to animal shelter improvements to helping fund a splash pad for the town’s little ones— this foundation does a lot to give back to the community.

The singer-songwriter graduated from Checotah High School in 2001 and was the salutatorian of her class, which means she was the second-highest-ranked graduate. Besides doing well academically, Carrie also played basketball and softball while also participating in choir and glee club. She then attended Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 2006 with a bachelor’s degree in mass communication with an emphasis in journalism. Yes, she finished her degree program after winning American Idol in 2005.

Let’s take a quick look back at the star during her high school days below!
