Junior Achievement will honor 4 at Tulsa Tycoons
The 2019 honorees are: Clarence Oliver, Ph.D.; Lynn Flinn, Rowland Group; Pat Piper, Bank of Oklahoma and Dana Weber, Webco Industries
Junior Achievement of Oklahoma will honor four at its fourth edition of Tulsa Tycoons: A Night of Monopoly fundraiser on May 2 at the Cox Business Center, 100 Civic Center. The 2019 honorees are: Clarence Oliver, Ph.D., JA Centennial honoree; Lynn Flinn, Rowland Group, Work Readiness honoree; Pat Piper, Bank of Oklahoma, Financial Literacy honoree; and Dana Weber, Webco Industries, Entrepreneurship honoree.
This year, JA of Oklahoma’s largest fundraiser is a chance to honor local business leaders and celebrate a significant milestone. JA was founded in 1919, so this year’s Tulsa Tycoons will commemorate the organization’s centennial.
“Very few organizations make it to 100 years, much less continue to grow and thrive like Junior Achievement has,” says JA of Oklahoma President Shannan Beeler. “We are taking this opportunity to celebrate and honor what’s come before, but also look toward the future as we work to inspire and prepare our young people to succeed in our ever-changing world.”
Funds raised from the event and auction support Junior Achievement programs, which will bring lessons on financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work readiness to more than 58,000 K-12 students this academic year.
