OKC Memorial Names New Trustees Chairman

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma City National Memorial Foundation's board of trustees has named a new chairman.

Susan Winchester took over the position Wednesday and will serve a two-year term. She's the 13th chairman of the foundation that formed after the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.

Winchester's sister, Dr. Peggy Clark, was killed in the bombing.

Kari Watkins, the executive director of the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum, says Winchester is a "remarkable leader." Watkins says Winchester will lead the foundation's board as the memorial prepares to mark the 20th anniversary of the bombing in 2015.
