Honoring Mona Lambird

Article excerpt

Oklahoma Supreme Court Justice Alma Wilson will be the presenter next Wednesday night when attorney Mona Salyer Lambird is honored at the annual Wall of Fame Humanitarian Award dinner at the Marriott Hotel. The dinner, sponsored by the Oklahoma City Public Schools Foundation, recognizes a graduate of the city's public school system each year at this black-tie dinner. Mona attended Linwood, Taft and Northwest Classen schools.

Reservations for the dinner are $125 per person and checks payable to the Public Schools Foundation may be mailed to 525 NW 13th St., Oklahoma City 73103. Proceeds from the dinner are used to benefit the foundation, which brings attention and resources to improve the quality of education for students in the city's public schools.

Harrison Levy Jr. and Sally Dasovich are co- chairing the dinner at which the invocation will be given by Barbara Thompson, wife of the Hon. Ralph Thompson, another "legalite." Incidentally, Judge Wilson will be honored herself next month at the Oklahoma Heritage Association's annual Oklahoma Hall of Fame Ceremony. She will be presented by her good friend Barry Switzer, coach for the Dallas Cowboys, who won their game Sunday (in case you missed it). Mona Lambird, whose mother, Pauline Salyer, founded the International China Painting Association and Museum here, is a member of the Oklahoma City law firm Andrews Davis Legg Bixler Milsten and Price. Recognized in 1989 by The Journal Record as its Corporate Woman of the Year, Mona was inducted into the Oklahoma Women's Hall of Fame in 1995. She was inaugurated as the first woman president of the Oklahoma Bar Association, is past president of the Oklahoma County Bar Association and was the first woman elected to the Board of Governors.
