2009 was an exciting year at Keep Oklahoma Beautiful. At our 19th Annual Environmental Awards Celebration on Nov. 17, we honored many who made that possible. More than 350 guest from across the state were welcomed to the historic Skrivin Hilton Hotel by Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett. After dinner winners were announced, among those winners was Dr. James E. Horne, the 2009 Lifetime Achievement Award Winner.
