Michael D. Case
Tulsa philanthropist Michael D. Case has stepped forward for the second time to donate critical funds to the University of Tulsa athletic programs. Case, the driving force behind the construction of the Michael D. Case Tennis Center, which was dedicated in 2001, has made available funds for the Case Athletic Complex, a 30,000-square-foot facility that will be located in the north end zone of Skelly Stadium at a cost of between $7–8 million. The facility, to be ready in 2006, and the first of three phases, will house coaches offices, meeting rooms and various suites, an academic support center, a ticket office, an apparel and souvenir shop, and locker, equipment, and athletic training rooms.
Girl Scouts of Magic Empire
Girl Scouts from the Magic Empire Council recently served as “Sighted Guides” for the visually impaired at the Oklahoma Council of the Blind Convention. Six local teen Girl Scouts helped guests orient themselves to the layout of the hotel’s main floor and familiarized them with key locations within the Crowne Plaza Hotel, where the two-day convention was held.
A flag ceremony was presented to all of the convention’s participants. “Sighted Guides” Michelle White, Amy Hauger, Kaity Nagle, Kristin Robertson, Alexa Grisham, and Kristin Swift participated in the ceremony and also performed a flag folding ceremony.
Girl Scouts of Magic Empire Council is proud of these Girl Scouts and is pleased to see them giving back to the community. Girl Scouts of Magic Empire Council serves nearly 11,000 girls in 14 counties across northeast Oklahoma.
