TCC Foundation Vision Dinner raises $245,000 honoring Don Walker
The Tulsa Community College Foundation honored Donald E. Walker, President and CEO of Arvest Bank, Tulsa, as the 2013 Vision in Education Leadership Award recipient earlier this month. He received the award at the TCC Vision in Education Leadership Award Dinner at the Cox Business Center.
The Foundation also honored Nathaniel S. Waters, TCC graduate and community activist, with the 2013 Stephen J. Jatras Award, posthumously. This award was established by the Foundation to recognize individuals whose service to higher education reflects the community spirit and commitment of Stephen J. Jatras, a benefactor and community leader who served as both a member of the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education and the TCC Board of Regents.
Waters was an advocate for people with disabilities and access to higher education.To view a tribute to Waters, click here.
