Renée DeMoss was honored with the Alma Wilson Award which is given to a lawyer who has made a significant contribution to improving the lives of Oklahoma children. Renée was introduced to Hamilton Middle School Principal Debra Wiggins and other civic leaders who were developing the Hamilton “Career Academy.” Hamilton is an “at-risk” school, which means that ninety-five percent of the children attending live below the poverty level, and most drop out beginning in the 10th grade. Renée has continued her development of the Tulsa County Bar Association program through a mentoring project for Hamilton, which during its very first year paired 65 volunteers who work in law and government jobs to meet as “lunch buddies” with the Hamilton sixth grade students.
