We are excited to announce that our previous Executive Director, Jerry Speck has returned to work part-time as Administrative Assistant. Jerry holds a MBA Degree from SOSU. He is a graduate of Seven Habits for Highly Effective People, a fellow of Oklahoma Public Health Leadership and a winner of the prestigious Governor’s Arts Award and Blue Cross and Blue Shield Champions of Health Award.
Mr. Speck left the chamber in 2004, to pursue a career with the Oklahoma State Department of Health as a Health Consultant working in 15 counties across southeast Oklahoma. He retired from the State in 2018 and now with ‘extra time on his hands’, he is returning to his passion of seeing Idabel prosper.
Quoting Speck, he said smiling: “It is good to be back where God kissed the earth and made the trees grow tall, the grass green and the water blue”.
Please find time to stop by the chamber and welcome him back as he pursues his dedication to the Idabel community!
