Gwen... paints and draws Choctaw history, legends, and culture. She was the Festival's Featured Artist in 2016. Hearing her parents and grandparents speak Choctaw greatly influenced Gwen when she was a child. The language has since become part of her artwork, and many of her art pieces include Choctaw words and phrases.
The Five Civilized Tribes Museum named Gwen a Master Artist in 2007. Gwen's awards for her work include Best of Show and Choctaw Heritage awards from the Choctaw Indian Art Show, Tushka Homma, OK; Best of Division for Drawing at the Santa Fe Indian Market, and the Heard Museum Guild Indian Art Fair and Market, Phoenix; and Best of Division for Painting at the Cherokee Art Market. She also received first place from the Eiteljorg Museum's Indian Art Market, Indianapolis; the Red Earth Native American Cultural Festival, Oklahoma City; the Greater Tulsa Indian Art Festival; and the Annual Trail of Tears Art Show, Tahlequah, OK. Gwen is honored to exhibit her work at the Southern Plains Indian Museum.

The city council recognized the retirement of Reserve Officer Phil Reichert and Reserve Officer Scott Williams during last night's meeting. Reserve officers volunteer to assist the police department during special events and community assistance programs. They often perform the same patrol duties as full-time officers. We would like to thank each of these gentlemen for their 20 years of service, selflessness, commitment and dedication to the Glenpool Police Department and the citizens of Glenpool.
STREET REPAIR PROJECTS: On Wednesday, January 24th, crews will be restriping Elwood St. from 131st St. to 151st St. They will also be restriping at the intersection of 121st St. and South Waco Ave. Please be advised there may be delays at these locations during repairs.
The traffic signal at the SE corner of 121st Street & Vancouver Ave. was damaged last fall by a vehicle accident. The extent of damage to the signal pole was significant requiring a new pole and foundation to be relocated several feet from the original location. This relocation and repair work started yesterday and will continue for the remainder of the week. All lanes of traffic are open now with limited impact, but we anticipate some disruption when the new pole and signal mast arm are being installed on the new foundation.
