We had a busy month in April, with a lot of things going on. We had a donation of stuffed animals, which is great for the Sheriff’s Office and our Deputies! Often times we go on calls and if there is a child there, being able to give him or her a stuffed animal makes them smile. When they are frightened, it helps to ease them. Sometimes it is a domestic, sometimes it is an auto accident, but whatever the reason we are there, it’s important the child see we are not there to hurt them.
We also had the honor and privilege to attend the Te Ata Statue Dedication at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma. Myself, Undersheriff Rusty Pyle, Lt. Johnnie Drewery and Public Relations Officer Lisa Hatchett attended this wonderful event. Speakers were USAO President Dr. John Feaver, Te Ata’s great nephew US Congressman Tom Cole, and Chickasaw Nation Governor Bill Anoatubby. If you get the chance go by the campus of the University of Science and Arts in Chickasha and see this beautiful statue.
We also said “goodbye” to longtime Grady County Clerk Lois Foster, it was a pleasure to serve with Lois and we wish her well in her retirement! We also want to say congratulations to our new Grady County Court Clerk Lisa Hannah and we look forward to working with her in the years to come! Lastly, we are happy to congratulate District Attorney Jason Hicks on his reelection! We certainly have enjoyed working with Jason and we are pleased to continue our great working relationship with him and his office!
