The 2019-2020 Oklahoma Bar Association Leadership Academy was recently announced, and Fry & Elder is again well represented.
Firm attorney Sara Schmook was one of just five Tulsa attorneys selected and becomes the fourth attorney from Fry & Elder to participate in the OBA Leadership Academy since its inception.
She joins Fry & Elder’s Lorena Rivas (2014) and former firm attorneys Luke Barteaux (2016) and Ruth Calvillo (2018) as Academy participants.

The OBA Leadership Academy began in 2008 and includes select attorneys throughout the state. This year’s class features 18 attorneys with 10 from Oklahoma City, the previously mentioned five from Tulsa and one attorney each from Broken Arrow, Guthrie and Stillwater.
“Building quality leaders is important,” said OBA President Chuck Chesnut of Miami. “Participation in this academy helps individuals enhance their knowledge and skills, giving them tools to be better lawyers and leaders, which benefits their communities and the legal profession.”
