Announcements

Willis Johnson to Run in Oklahoma City Memorial MarathonWillis Johnson retired from OCES in 1997 after serving 23 years in Extension, the last 10 years as District Extension Director for the Northwest District.  Willis will be participating in the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon on April 25 to raise money for diabetes research through the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF).  During his tour in the Vietnam War, Willis was exposed to Agent Orange which led to a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes in 1992.  He has been able to keep the diabetes under control by running on a regular basis.  This spring he hopes to finish his second Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon and asks for your support.  Under Oklahoma law, anyone who makes a tax deductible donation to OMRF may claim a tax credit equal to half the amount of their donation (up to $4000) on their Oklahoma state income tax return.  Follow the link www.omrf.org/go/teamorange to learn more and to make a donation on his behalf.
