Jeremy Boak, Ph.D.

Director, Oklahoma Geological Survey

Speaker on March 7, 2016

Dr. Boak, who received his Ph.D. from Harvard, presented the data and most recent research on Oklahoma earthquakes in a clear, easily understandable way. Facts don't make good news stories! We learned the facts.

Janna Winters volunteered as greeter.

President Sundy Corbin announced a $75,000 grant for the Kiwanis Early Education Center from the MeindersFoundation. Hooray!

Guests included:

Rick Farmer, Ph,D., Extra Point Productions, Insurance Continuing Education Provider

Margaret McLain, wife of Cam McLain, socialite, community volunteer, and recent helper with the Mardi Gras party

After the meeting, a group of oilmen and Dr. Boak spiritedly discussed more!

This meeting was on the same day as the memorial for Aubrey McClendon so guest attendance was lighter than usual. Some members rushed back from the service to hear Dr. Jeremy Boak.
