OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO) – The Oklahoma Educators Hall of Fame is inducting three new members on August 5 at 6:00 p.m. at the Quail Creek Golf and Country Club in Oklahoma City.

Kate Frank, of Muskogee, passed away in 1982 but was nominated last year for her inspiring work as a historic educator and senior activist.

Jo Arnold Pettigrew is from Shawnee. She has been an educator and advocate for 35 years. She is currently a member of the Oklahoma Ethics Commission.

Kathryn Turner, of Bridge Creek, led her community through the aftermath of one of the most devastating tornadoes in world history as a principal in 1999.
