2004 - Individual Achievement - Education & Promotion - Brian Dougherty, Oklahoma City

Two years ago, we honored landscape architect Brian Dougherty for Daffodil Hill Gardens and Gallery, his stunning restoration of a decayed home in Bethany. Tonight we honor him once more, this time for his outstanding contributions in education and community services.

Along with directing the landscaping, horticulture and volunteer activities at The Children's Center in Bethany, Brian was instrumental in establishing a farmer's market and a unique horticulture therapy program for the children. He also has collaborated with more than 100 schools in Oklahoma County on their landscaping projects and has served in various capacities for numerous public concerns and organizations.

The judges said he'd be a treasure in any community, highly valued for his consistent and loving volunteer spirit. For teaching by example what it means to love your neighbor, Brian Dougherty tirelessly designs good news for the children and landscape of Oklahoma.
