Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb will be honored at the Christian Businessmen Connection's 19th annual Salt & Light Award Dinner set for Oct. 9 at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.
Each year, the organization, known as the CBMC of Oklahoma City, honors a person whose life exemplifies what Jesus described when He said that believers should be salt to the earth and light to the world.
CBMC leaders said Lamb is the 2012 honoree because he has continued to share his faith and has exemplified a steady walk as he has represented Oklahoma in his roles as a special agent with the U.S. Secret Service, key positions within the Keating administration, Oklahoma State Senate and now as lieutenant governor.
An Enid native, Lamb played football at Louisiana Tech University and then returned to Oklahoma, earning his bachelor's degree from Oklahoma State University. He also has a law degree from Oklahoma City University's School of Law.
Lamb and his wife, Monica, have been married 17 years and have two children, Griffin and Lauren. The Lambs are active members of Quail Springs Baptist Church, where Lamb serves as a church deacon. He has been a member of the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Athletic Association, where he officiated high school football. In his spare time, Lamb enjoys fishing, hunting, reading and spending time with his family.
