Over 3,000 alumni of Oklahoma Christian University live in greater Dallas Fort Worth. Beginning in 2014, the North Texas Alumni Chapter Board initiated a new honor to recognize outstanding alumni who live and serve in this area. The award is named for an esteemed alumni couple who have done so much for OC and this Chapter over the years, Richard & Pat Lawson.
The Lawson Award recognizes exceptional alumni who have rendered distinctive service to the university, church, community, or society as a whole. These recipients represent the very best of OC and are making a real difference for God in North Texas and in their walks of life. ‘Lawson Alumni Awardees’ are incredible and selfless people. Awardees are selected by the North Texas Alumni Board.
