It was an honor for me to share an ADDY award
(advertising award) with my dear friend Dr. Hall Duncan, Ph.D.
We produced a children’s book “ The Wild Adventure
of Oklahoma Joe’s 10-Gallon Hat” and it was awarded a Silver Merit by
the Oklahoma City Advertising Club at the 42nd Annual Awards
Gala. Dr. Duncan is the talented author and illustrator. The book
celebrates the OK Centennial with lots of historical information and
facts about Oklahoma and our Native Americans , along with a fun and
creative story for children and adults to enjoy. I provided the digital
production (compiling his art into digital scans and producing the
content into digital format for printing).
Tony and I got spruced up and attended the awards
gala and enjoyed a night of fun at the beautiful Cowboy Hall! It was so
nice to share this with my mentor and dear friend, Hall and his wife
Lois, and to see friends and colleagues at the gala! The theme was the
Retrospective and Career of “Mr. Addy A. Award”. The gala included a
silent art auction for student scholarships, as you will see in the
A big thank you to “Dr. D” and his wife Lois
for the night of fun!

Center has the book for sale!
PS. Dr. Duncan was my professor at University of
Central Oklahoma, in the 1980s. We traveled to Seoul, South Korea
together, along with my mother-in-law Leona, as guests of the Friendship
Force organization. I created marketing materials for the organization
as a project in Dr. Duncan’s Marketing and Design course, and then we
were awarded the trip to Korea. It was a thrilling, educational and at
times adventurous trip! Some of you may know the story of how “I lost my
pants while visiting our US Military base, Camp Kitty Hawk, while
overlooking “Propaganda Village” in North Korea at the south side of the
demarcation line between North and South Korea”. If you don’t let me
know, it is truly a “Margee” story! LOL
