This week we're celebrating one of the best college football coaches of all time and an Oklahoma Football legend... Bud Wilkinson! Born in Minnesota, Wilkinson graduated from Shattuck Military Academy in 1933. He received his degree in English from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities in 1937 and a master's degree from Syracuse University in 1940. While at Syracuse, he held the post of assistant, center and quarterback football coach. He also coached golf and ice hockey until he entered the U.S. Navy in 1942. In 1945, he was discharged from the Navy and returned to Minneapolis to enter his father's mortgage and loan business. The following year, he went to The University of Oklahoma as an assistant coach, eventually becoming head coach of the Sooners. Wilkinson led the Sooners to three national championships, 14 Big Seven and Big Eight Conference titles, and six New Year's Day bowl victories. He compiled a record-setting 31 straight victories from 1948-50, and then blew that record out of the water with 47 straight victories in the 1953-57 seasons. Outside of his football career, Wilkinson ran for the U.S. Senate and served four years as the Chairman of the Board of the Lifetime Sports Foundation. President John F. Kennedy appointed Wilkinson as Special Consultant to the President on the fitness of youth. #MemberMonday

Born and raised in Tulsa, Ray Siegfried II left his family's insurance business in 1969 and purchased NORDAM from a small, bankrupt company with only eight employees. In less than 10 years, he grew NORDAM to 300 employees and doubled the size of its facilities. He led NORDAM to make more than $11 million in sales. In 2003, he was one of five individuals who received the @nbaaphotos First Century of Flight Award for his significant contributions to the advancement of aviation. ✈️ Since it's #WorldOceanDay, we also need to talk about Siegfried's passion for the ocean, diving and underwater exploration. 🌊🦈 His family sponsored the @okaquarium's Roy and Robin Siegfried Shark Exhibit — a 400,000 gallon shark adventure, which is one of the largest exhibits at the aquarium. Siegfried served as director of the Oklahoma Aquarium Foundation and chairman of the Institute of Nautical Archaeology.
