Noble Chamber announces new pres

NORMAN — The new Noble Chamber of Commerce president was inducted at the annual banquet and auction recently.

Cathy Adams, director of the Noble Public Library, has stepped up as president to fill outgoing president, Robin Stead’s position.

The theme of the banquet was reflection born of a quote by Peter Drucker: “Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.”

Adams said with that quote in mind, and being inspired by Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” she envisions the Chamber Past that built a good foundation, the Chamber Present that is building on that foundation, evaluating the things it does and becoming member-oriented, and the Chamber Future, where she cited recently having had a planning session to plan things the chamber wants to do. Three main focuses are serving the community, the membership and the chamber.

“I am honored and feel very privileged,” Adams said regarding being inducted as chamber president. “I feel very excited for where we are going. We are prepared for action, to reflect and act. I want us to be action-oriented in all we do.”

“I’m very proud of what we accomplished in 2012, and I think under Cathy’s leadership, she will take us to even more spectacular heights,” Stead said.

Chamber Executive Director Dawn McNutt said the gala event, with silent and live auctions, was a success. Noble High School Band students, directed by Fred Queen, volunteered as entertainers.

The auction item bringing the highest bid was Sun Construction’s donation of a three-man crew to work eight-hours while providing all tools and equipment.

Steve Owens and Rusty Sullivan donated a football and a picture signed by three former OU football players and Heisman Trophy winners. Barry Switzer and Sullivan donated a football signed by Switzer.
