The trust will honor her with a reception from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday at the schoolhouse. The public is invited.

The school is open the first two Saturdays of the month from March through December and can be viewed by groups at other times by calling 715-1889.

During her years of service, Terry has written numerous grants to raise money for the school. She also wrote the nomination that placed Stephenson Park on the Oklahoma Landmarks Inventory; secured a number of local, state and national awards; pushed for the creation of an award-winning website and a docent program; and developed a program for Girl Scouts to earn a Community Service patch, which she also designed.

She also arranged for projects at the school for Boy Scouts looking for an Eagle Scout project.

A highlight for Terry was nominating the school for the National Schoolhouse Registry, maintained by the Country School Association of America. It was the 22nd school accepted. In June, she will be a presenter at that group's annual meeting in Atlanta. Her topic will be “Christmas at the Schoolhouse.”
