TULSA, OK -- ORU's New President addressed the Tulsa Press Club on Tuesday.  Mark Rutland told the audience he's happy to be in Tulsa and impressed by everyone's friendliness.

"My wife and I had went out to eat with another couple and when we came out of the restaurant and my friend asked me what do you like to do recreational I said well I like to fish, when I get the chance I'll find out about fishing in Oklahoma and a guy walking behind us in the parking lot said I'm going tonight, you want to go with me? And, I realized he was serious, he was going to take this stranger from the parking lot in his boat," said ORU President Mark Rutland.

Rutland says it was windy and cold that night, so he declined the man's offer.
