      Our special guest this week is one of our own, Patrice Douglas. And those of us who know Patrice well are thrilled to host her, for she exemplifies the Rotary motto of Service Above Self. An active member of the Rotary Club of Edmond, Patrice is an exceptionally busy person, who holds several full-time positions.

      Everyone in Edmond knows Patrice Douglas as Mayor of our great city. Elected in April, 2009, she has just completed her first year in office. She has championed the creation of the Small Business Task Force, launched a youth volunteerism program, and stood firm for Edmond’s senior citizens. Her reputation has spread throughout the state, as she has been elected to serve on the Oklahoma Municipal League Board of Directors and serves on its Task Force on Government Efficiencies.

      Many in Edmond know Patrice as a banker. She leads the Edmond commercial team for the locally-owned First Fidelity Bank. She brought to that position not only several years in banking, but also thirteen years in the practice of law and five years working as Vice President and General Counsel of ACP Sheet Metal.

      And then there is the Patrice Douglas of family and faith. Her husband of 21 years, Brent Douglas, is a strategic planning consultant. Patrice and Brent have two sons, Patrick, who is 14 years old, and Phillip, who is 12 years old. Together, they are active members at Life Church.

      Patrice received her undergraduate education at Oklahoma Christian University and earned her law degree from the University of Oklahoma. She has been active in her community and state. Two different Oklahoma governors have appointed her to serve on four different statewide boards and task forces. She served two terms for the Edmond Economic Development Authority, and served as its chair until October, 2008.

      Please give a warm Rotary Club of Edmond welcome to our Mayor, Patrice Douglas.
