“In my mind, the credit is three-fold: our wonderful volunteers Yvonne and Meredith provided such a rich and safe environment for our kids’ inspiration; Michelle McCann was amazingly thorough and encouraging in her edits and comments back to our leaders and youth; and our state historian Bob Blackburn and David Fitzgerald got us off to a great start during the initial brainstorming stage. I am so thankful for all the players!” Jane Sutter, President & CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma
