newsmakers

 

Each year, the Tulsa chapter of AWC honors women with Newsmaker Award. Newsmaker Award winners are presented with their awards at the annual Newsmaker Award Luncheon, a prominent event for the Tulsa metropolitan community.

Newsmaker Award recipients must be outstanding women who have been in the news in the recent past, contributed significantly to the advancement of women and are philosophically compatible with the goals of AWC. Recipients must be Oklahoma residents and must not have previously been a Newsmaker. Pictured: Barbara Santee, Nancy McDonald, Lee Clark Johns, and Shirley Elliott.
