United Way Day of Caring
Thank you Arvest Bank & Hartford Insurance! Employees of these two local corporations helped spruce up our campus recently.
We will present Donna Nigh, former first lady of Oklahoma, with the Compassionate Citizen of the Year Award on Thursday, June 4 at 10 a.m. in the Impact Oklahoma Recreation Center on our campus.
We established the award in celebration of our 55th anniversary this year, and chose Mrs. Nigh as the first recipient.
Mrs. Nigh is being honored for her decades-long commitment of expanding the number of possibilities available to developmentally-disabled Oklahomans through more residential group homes and job site opportunities, and the generous financial grants made to nonprofit organizations by the charitable foundation that bears her name.
The Donna Nigh Foundation, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, was established in 1985 by friends of Mrs. Nigh as a birthday present and was in recognition of her work on behalf of the developmentally disabled, a cause she has championed since 1968.
“Donna Nigh gives voice to thousands of disabled persons and their families through her efforts to shed light on a segment of our population that goes largely unnoticed,” states Georgia Devening, OKFD executive director. “Our cause needs more advocates like Mrs. Nigh, and we think by recognizing her lifelong commitment to disabled citizens others may rise to the occasion.”
