Governor to Speak at Dedication
-released by OPSU Campus Communications 01-19-2006

Goodwell - Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry plans to speak at the ceremony to designate a portion of Highway 54 the Jack Begley Memorial Highway. Oklahoma Panhandle State University is hosting the ceremony and reception on Monday, January 23, 2006 in the Noble Activity and Cultural Center at 3:00 p.m.

OPSU invites everyone to attend the dedication and the reception afterwards to honor Jack Begley’s service to the state of Oklahoma.

Oklahoma lawmakers recently passed legislation for the memorial. Begley served in the Oklahoma State House of Representatives for District 61 for 14 years and was instrumental in procuring the funds to expand the portion of Highway 54 that spans the Oklahoma Panhandle from the Texas state line through Optima, OK. He passed away in April of 2004, but he will always be remembered as a friend to citizens of the Panhandle.
