Review for Greater Okc Youth Sports Association, Oklahoma City, OK, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Greater Oklahoma City Youth has a program called Fields & Futures that is changing Oklahoma City. Their mission is Igniting Success--One field, one coach, one student at a time. They rebuild athletic fields and provide equipment, they are supporting coach professional development to help coaches have the resources they need, and Fields & Futures is also partnering with OKCPS to build a mentoring program at their middle schools. I especially love hearing the students so excited about their fields and new equipment. They are more engaged, they feel appreciated and they are doing better in school! In fact, at one middle school, participation in sports has almost tripled since the new fields were finished.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Continue getting the word out, do more grant writing and get to more schools faster.

Review for Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center Inc, Enid, OK, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center is a gem. This museum tells the stories of those who settled this area after the Great Land Run, plus it teaches leadership lessons which are still relevant to business leaders today. The Center is a dynamic community organization with a full calendar of brown bag luncheons, family events and traveling exhibits. Beautiful exhibits, interesting artifacts, knowledgable staff and a completely remodeled "campus" make this someplace to add to your "to do" list for sure.

I am delighted to have the history of community well documented through the efforts of the CSRHC.

If I had more time, I would volunteer here during the days when school groups come through the school to experience what it was like to attend school in a one room school house.

Role:  Board Member & I have enjoyed many events and exhibits at the CSRHC.
