Perspective from the Executive Director
It is with enthusiasm and passion that I begin the role of Executive Director of Oklahoma Humanities. As we begin a new chapter in the organization’s history, it seems appropriate that this magazine issue focuses on the theme of TIME.
As history and time demonstrate, the future can bring innovation and evolution, progress and purpose. Whatever the outcomes, our successes will be anchored in those of our past. For almost fifty years this organization has been Oklahoma’s sole provider of statewide financial support specifically for humanitiesbased public programming. With a firm grasp on that successful history and organizational distinctiveness, we will move forward with our unwavering mission to help Oklahomans learn about the human experience, understand new perspectives, and participate knowledgeably in civic life.
As I take on the direction of Oklahoma Humanities, I do so with unyielding optimism. I look forward to fostering existing partnerships while cultivating new and diverse collaborations. I look to you, our readers and constituents, to engage with us as we plan our next steps. Thank you for your dedicated support of this incredible organization. We achieve our mission because of you!
