Meet the Class of 2020!


We're taking it back to 2008 for this week's edition of #InductionThursday and celebrating Oklahoma Hall of Fame Member Dr. Jordan J.N. Tang! Dr. Tang came to Oklahoma from Taiwan in 1955 to attend Oklahoma State University, where he earned a master's degree. In 1957, Dr. Tang joined the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation where he became one of the world's leading experts on proteases, a group of proteins crucial to human health. Over the next 51 years, his discoveries led to breakthroughs in such diseases as stomach cancer, hypertension, AIDS and Alzheimer's. He is the ONLY Oklahoman ever to receive the Alzheimer's Association of America's highest research prize — the $1 million Pioneer Award. Learn more about his life and accomplishments here: https://bit.ly/2ZCy0sC And check out all the Banquet & Induction Ceremony clips from over the years here: https://bit.ly/36aEcbb

Grab your athletic gear — we're playing until the whistle blows to celebrate All Star Day at the Oklahoma Hall of Fame (@ Home!). Today's theme is inspired by OHOF Member Jim Thorpe. Hailing from Prague, OK, Thorpe is well-known as one of the most well-rounded athletes in history. He competed in the 1912 Olympics and won the pentathlon and decathlon (AND he set a new world record!). Thorpe's birth name was Wa-Tho-Huk, which means "bright path." He was destined for greatness. Join us for a fun-filled day of activities. We'll be reading "Peanut Goes for Gold," watching Disney's The Rookie, crafting our own footballs and baseballs, and making a game day favorite... sliders!
