Honoring Oklahoma Mentors
Oklahoma Mentor Day Update
We are sad to report that Beverly Woodrome has stepped down as the director of our mentoring initiative. We appreciate tremendously all that Beverly has done to promote quality youth mentoring, to help start new mentoring programs, and to provide guidance for mentoring organizations throughout Oklahoma.
Under these circumstances, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Oklahoma Mentor Day in January in Lawton. We appreciate the efforts many of you have made to submit your organizations’ Outstanding Mentors. We believe it is very important to recognize and honor those caring mentors for their impact on the youth they serve and in their communities.
The Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence will continue to honor all those Outstanding Mentors whose forms were submitted by the Nov. 16 deadline. During National Mentoring Month in January, we will send certificates to each honoree’s mentoring organization to present to the Outstanding Mentor. We will highlight the recipients on our website, in social media and other hometown publicity.
