The Herald Givens Heart of LT Award
A very special award was instituted and presented in 2014. This award is to be given, from time to time, by resolution of the Leadership Tulsa Executive Committee and will honor those individuals who through exemplary service, have demonstrated the Heart of LT and the tenants of servant leadership through their service to the LT community. The award is named after the late Herald Givens and was presented to him in 2014. Click here to see the video created in Herald’s honor.
