EDMOND — The Edmond Area Chamber of Commerce recognizes outstanding Edmond residents every five years by inducting them into the Edmond Hall of Fame.

The chamber honored six individuals at the 2010 Edmond Hall of Fame banquet at Oak Tree Country Club.

This year’s inductees are retired Maj. Gen. Rita Aragon, Dr. Krista Jones, City Councilman Charles Lamb, professional golfer Doug Tewell, Oklahoma County Commissioner Ray Vaughn and the late superintendent of the Francis Tuttle Technology Center Bruce Gray.

"Edmond has had a history of having leaders who have not only served our community but have left their mark on our state and our nation. This year’s honorees have given of themselves on an international, national, state and local level,” said chamber President Ken Moore.

Aragon became the first woman to hold the rank of brigadier general in the Oklahoma Air National Guard and was named the first female commander of the Air National Guard in 2003, according to the National Guard Bureau.
