Fellowships and Awards

Each year, the OLSF awards members with honor awards to recognize them for their philanthropic efforts. The OLSF wishes to thank all Oklahoma Lion members for their service and loyalty to "Lionism" throughout the state.

The following honors are recognized and honored to each Oklahoma Lion who satisfies the criteria. They are presented with a recognition letter, an honor pin, and their name posted and honored on the OLSF Website. These faithful and respected Lions set a path honoring our history, helping those in need, and providing leadership to future lions.
Top Awards–Platinum Judge  $1000.00 Award

This award is named after the Lions sixth International President (1922-23). He was a native Virginian, but originally moved to Oklahoma in 1901, to become head of the Oklahoma School system (The LION-January 1960). He served as the superintendent of Oklahoma City schools from 1902 until 1906. In the latter year he was admitted to the Oklahoma Bar and began the practice of law.

   

He then became a United States District Court Judge appointed by President Coolidge in 1929. He retired in 1956 as the only appointed District Judge until Alfred P. Murrah was appointed in 1937. He carried the entire responsibility alone for the first nine years of his service. He was involved in various civic clubs, however Lions held his greatest and deepest interest. He served as President of the Oklahoma City Lions club for the term 1921-22 and was a delegate to the annual Lions International Convention in Oakland during his term. His personal capacities were well attested by the circumstances that surrounded his presidency. The “political upset” election honored him as the 1922-23 Lions Clubs International President even without serving in the prior capacity, as senior Vice President.

Edgar S. Vaught

The election did not deter the senior Vice President, John S. Noel as he continued to serve alongside Judge Vaught and both remained lifelong friends. Until his death, his interest in Lions and service was one of his personal greatest joys. The Lions club Health Camp for youth in Northeast Oklahoma City brought him abiding pleasure (Shirk, George H., Year unknown. The Chronicles of Oklahoma. Judge Edgar S. Vaught). Each year beginning in 2015 (as voted upon by the OLSF Board of Directors 8-15-2015) the Oklahoma Lions Service Foundation awards the Judge Edgar S. Vaught Fellowship award to individuals who have contributed, or had contributions made in their name of at least $1000. Cowboy Cadillac ticket sales will also be counted toward this total.

Dr. Bob McCullough Fellowship
Each year, the OLSF awards the Dr. Robert D. McCullough Fellowship to individuals who have contributed or had contributions made in their name of at least $500. Starting in 2008, individual Cowboy Cadillac ticket sales also count toward this total.

Dr. Robert D. McCullough began his association with Lions Clubs in 1941 when he joined the Muskogee Lions Club. In 1943 he transferred to the Downtown Lions Club where his attendance record was perfect.

Dr. Bob was elected Third International Vice-President in 1967 during the 50th annual International Convention in Chicago and as International President in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in 1970. His history of dedication to Lions includes his service as District Governor and two-year term on the International Board of Directors where he served as a member of the Executive Committee.

He was the recipient of a Master Key Award, six International President's Awards, and the Ambassador of Good Will Award. An osteopathic physician and surgeon, Dr. Bob received his doctorate from Kansas City College of Osteopathy and Surgery. He also had an honorary doctorate of science.
