Lamb is a longtime community volunteer, serving on a number of city boards and commissions including the Edmond Urban Forestry Commission and Central Edmond Urban Board.

He was inducted into the Edmond Hall of Fame in 2010. Lamb was the first to receive the Municipal Electric Systems of Oklahoma Ray Duffy Personal Service Award in 1999.

Beverly Terry

Terry has actively promoted Edmond High School and the city of Edmond for more than 60 years. She retired after a 40-year career with Southwestern Bell and AT&T.

She served 13 years on the Edmond Historical Preservation Trust. She was instrumental in the trust acquiring the old Sanders Camera Shop on Second Street and returning the building to its original purpose, a one-room school, the first one built in 1889 in Oklahoma Territory. She helped with the fundraising and finding proof the building was indeed the first school house, along with the late Edmond historian Lucille Warrick.

Terry has served as building manager of the schoolhouse, making sure all the utility workers and repair people were on site when needed.

Eloise Rodkey Rees

The late Eloise Rodkey Rees was the granddaughter of the late Isaac Rodkey, an Edmond pioneer who owned the Rodkey Flour Mill. The company employed more than 30 workers. The Rodkey Four Elevator still stands west of the railroad tracks on Edmond Road.

As her children left home, she started a career as a writer. A number of her novels were published, and in her later years she actively pursued production opportunities for her screenplays and lyrical songs.

She was interested in the family business and managed her own investments. She was a generous contributor to her community and supported the Edmond Public Schools Foundation, the University of Central Oklahoma and restoration of the historic Rodkey Mill and Rodkey home.
