Frank, Stan Lybarger, Wilma Mankiller, Elliot Nelson, Major Dan Rooney, Kathy Taylor, Steve Turnbo, Steadman Upham and Henry Zarrow.
In addition to honoring this year’s Headliners, the Tulsa Press Club will use a portion of the event’s proceeds to fund scholarships for Oklahoma journalism and communication college students. The Tulsa Press Club mission is to foster and promote ethical journalism, defend freedom of the press and the public’s right to information, and encourage the exchange of ideas between media and their publics.
