The Oklahoman reports:
Oklahoma Christian University paid tribute to three former Oklahoma governors and first ladies at a gala Thursday.
The college held its 10th annual Associates Dinner on Thursday evening at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. During the event, the college presented the Lee Allan Smith Spirit of Oklahoma Award to Brad and Kim Henry, George and Donna Nigh and Frank and Cathy Keating.
The university created the award last year to recognize people who have devoted their careers to the betterment of Oklahoma. At last year’s dinner, OC presented the award to former Oklahoma City mayors Ron Norick and Kirk Humphreys and current Mayor Mick Cornett.
During the event, current Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin said she and the three former governors and their wives share a special bond, in that they understand the pressures that go along with running a state government.
