The Tulsa Community College Foundation has named David Page as the 2018 Vision in Education Leadership Award recipient. He is being honored for his enduring commitment to excellence in education and leadership of key initiatives and organizations that have impacted economic development, quality of life and social services for Tulsa.

The annual Vision in Education Leadership Award Dinner is Thursday, Sept. 27 at the Cox Business Center. A reception will begin at 6 p.m. with dinner to follow at 7 p.m. The 2018 Vision Honorary Chair is Becky J. Frank. Susan Harris is the 2018 Foundation Dinner Chair.

The Vision Dinner raises critical resources for TCC students, faculty and staff. Three organizations have set the pace this year as Visionary sponsors: ARVEST Foundation, ONE Gas and the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation.

“David Page brings his heart and his head to every education need in our community,” said TCC President & CEO Leigh B. Goodson, Ph.D. “David has been a champion and advocate for education in Tulsa for decades. He is a consensus builder and a successful leader because he takes the time to listen and makes sure people have been heard and included in the decision making.”

Page is the private bank market manager and vice chairman of JPMorgan Chase in Oklahoma. He is currently Chair of the Tulsa Stadium Trust, Philbrook Museum of Art Trustee, and serves on the boards of the Oklahoma State Chamber of Commerce and the United Way of Central Oklahoma.

As Chair of the Tulsa Regional Chamber in 2009, Page took the lead on the role of chief advocator for education reminding the business community that “world changers” are individuals who have had a chance at education regardless of their economic status and go on to create good in the world. Then, his calm leadership was essential when Tulsa Public Schools announced Project Schoolhouse and its intention to achieve significant cost savings through school closings. Page agreed to lead the monumental effort as the comprehensive and collaborative process yielded more than $5 million in savings.

The Vision Dinner makes a difference in the lives of many of TCC’s 25,000 students by providing support for academic, leadership development and scholarship programs for TCC.

“Last year alone, the TCC Foundation was able to transfer more than $2 million in support to the college. The Vision Dinner is the cornerstone to that support,” said Lauren Brookey, TCC Vice President of External Affairs and President of the TCC Foundation.

The 2018 Vision Dinner sponsorship levels are $25,000 for Visionary, $10,000 for Leadership, $5,000 for Excellence, $3,000 for Achievement, and $1,500 for Dedication.
In addition to Visionary sponsors ARVEST Foundation, ONE Gas and the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, Leadership sponsors include Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma, Cox Communications, Omni Air International and the Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation.

The Vision Award is presented annually to an individual dedicated to education excellence and community leadership. The 2018 TCC Vision in Education Leadership Award Dinner committee members are David Cole, Kirk Hays, Eleanor Payne, Roger Ramseyer, and Chad Tamarin.

Past honorees include Alison Anthony, Keith Ballard, David Boren, Montie Box, U.S. Representative Tom Cole, John Gaberino, Susan Harris, former Governor Brad Henry, Jake Henry Jr., George Kaiser, Paula Marshall, Lynn and Stacy Schusterman, Don Walker, and John-Kelly C. Warren.
