Rich, president and CEO of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and Gaylord-Pickens Museum. “They provide us a meaningful opportunity to celebrate this year’s inductees and forward our mission of telling Oklahoma’s story through its people.”
The other presenters at this year’s banquet will be Molly Shi Boren, presenting Michael Burrage; Ree Drummond, presenting Rebecca Dixon; Theodore Elam, presenting Dan Dillingham; Jane Jayroe Gamble, presenting Rita Bly Aragón; and Pat O’Hara, presenting Kelli O’Hara.
