The 23rd Annual Oklahoma Academy Salute, the organization?s only fundraiser, was Friday, August 19. By all accounts, the event was a success. Over 520 people gathered at the Tulsa Southern Hills Marriott for an evening of networking, recognition, and entertainment. After the Celebrity Reception, the evening opened with Honorary Evening Chairs Joan and Phil Albert and Oklahoma Academy Chairman John Harper welcoming guests to the event. Evening Masters of Ceremony Mike Turpen and Governor Frank Keating kept the evening moving right along. Both gentlemen grew up in Tulsa, so guests were entertained by Turpen pressing Keating for stories of his youthful escapades! The Capitol Steps perfectly parodied Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and more. Of course, they have ample material to work with this year.
