TULSA — The Kay County Bar Association will receive the Outstanding County Bar Association Award from the Oklahoma Bar Association at the 114th Annual Meeting, Nov. 7-9 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Tulsa.
The award is one of 22 to be given to recipients from across the state during the three-day event.
“The Kay County Bar Association is being recognized for its contributions to their communities and their profession. They should be very proud of their accomplishments,” said OBA President Kimberly Hays of Tulsa.
The Kay County Bar Association founded the W.B. Clark Scholarship program to help pay for law school tuition. The program has given more than $20,000 each year for the past two years.
The Kay County Bar Association members give back to their communities by working with county school districts to celebrate Law Day and by providing free color printing to the Survivor Resource Network and Dearing House. Michael R. Vanderburg, City Attorney for Ponca City, serves as president of the county association.
The 18,000-member Oklahoma Bar Association, headquartered in Oklahoma City, was created by the Oklahoma Supreme Court to advance the administration of justice and to foster and maintain learning, integrity, competence, public service and high standards of conduct among Oklahoma’s legal community.
