A Chat with Longtime Tulsa Citizen and TU Advocate, Steve Turnbo, Recipient of the 2020 Twyman Award

Aired on Thursday, October 15th.

The upcoming 2020 Homecoming Weekend here at the University of Tulsa will be, unfortuneately, quite different this time around, given the pandemic. But one Homecoming tradition that will continue is the designation and celebration of the annual J. Paschal Twyman Award. Our guest is the distinguished recipient of that award for this year, Steve Turnbo. After graduating with a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Tulsa in 1967, Mr. Turnbo went on to establish the well-regarded local PR firm, Schnake Turnbo Frank, for which he remains Chairman Emeritus. Mr. Turnbo was also, among many other honors, a longtime member of the University's Board of Trustees. He joins us to look back on his time at TU as well as his 40-plus years of wide-ranging service to the City of Tulsa and its people.
