Our Amazing Women

Body

Every year when I start to read the most recent bios of the top 100 women nominated for our Most Powerful Women, I am astonished by what these ladies have accomplished.

I am proud to be able to recognize them. Yes, these women receive awards from individual groups, but when you look at the total body of work of the top 100, you realize what a difference they make in the quality of life in Oklahoma City.

Grisham’s new book makes me famous

Body

In John Grisham’s new novel The Guardians, Vicki Gourley founded the Guardian Ministries with her own money. (Yes, it’s this Vicki Gourley.)
“She works fifteen hours a day, trying to free the innocent.”
No, I don’t know John Grisham. However, I do know Bob Nelon. He’s the reason I am in the book. Bob served on the Community Literacy Center board with me for years and succeeded me as president. He is a lawyer with Hall Estill. He worked with John Grisham when Grisham needed an Oklahoma lawyer after writing the book, The Innocent Man.
