Goodwell, Okla. — Judge and Panhandle State Alumnus Ronald L. Kincannon was presented with the Award of Judicial Excellence during the Oklahoma Bar Association 114th Annual Meeting on November 7th through the 9th. He was one of 22 recipients of various awards that were given during the weekend.

Kincannon is a Panhandle native. He graduated from Griggs High School in Cimarron County and then attended Panhandle State to receive his undergraduate degree in 1970, then went on to serve in the Army as a military intelligence officer. Following his service, he attended Oklahoma City University School of Law to earn his J.D. He then practiced as a trial attorney for 10 years before he moved to Cimarron County to be elected as the associate district judge. He has been serving the Oklahoma Panhandle for 24 years.

In the early 1990s, Kincannon took on teaching at his Alma Mater as an adjunct business law professor for a few years.

The President of the Oklahoma Bar Association, Kimberly Hays, commented, “Judge Kincannon is being recognized for his contributions to the community and to the practice of law. He should be very proud of his accomplishments.”

Today, Kincannon can be found assisting Texas County with criminal dockets, serving as a settlement judge, and continuing to receive assignments throughout the 1st Judicial District, which encompasses 180 miles of all three panhandle counties as well as Harper County.

President of the Panhandle State Association of Alumni and Friends Diane Murphey stated, “it is a blessing to the Panhandle area when alumni like Ron Kincannon return home and serve their Panhandle community. I am very proud of his accomplishments as well as the many volunteer activities that benefit this area.”
