ACE Visits Tulsa, OK

(Mar. 8-10)

ACE in the City:

We are privileged to be part of the close-knit Catholic school community in Tulsa. Since 1996, thirty-one teachers have served in Tulsa. Six currently serve five schools in the community: All Saints, Bishop Kelley High School, Holy Family Cathedral School, Saint Catherine School, and Saints Peter and Paul School.

Today, several ACE graduates who have stayed in the city serve in the development departments for the Diocese of Tulsa Catholic Schools and with the Tulsa Community Fund (TCF). Their work with these organizations helps sponsor donor-supported, education-related programs including scholarships and education grants. These graduates have also helped co-found the scholarship-granting organization that was established to take advantage of a recently passed tax credit to ensure that students of greatest need could attend high-performing schools. Tulsa is also home to Remick Leaders, as well as members of the Program for Educational Access and ACE's Teaching Exceptional Children program.

About the Awards

The University of Notre Dame Sorin Award for Service to Catholic Schools

Both Bob and Jeanne Sullivan have helped innumerable Tulsa families and children through their shared work and advocacy on behalf of Catholic Charities, Madonna House, St. Francis of Assisi Tuition Assistance Fund, and St. John Medical Center — among many other philanthropic causes. Bob also has been an active board member of St. John Medical Center for 24 years, and Jeanne was recognized for her decades of work for Madonna House when she was honored with its Helen B. Lauinger award in 2008.

The University of Notre Dame Champion of Education Award

The William K. Warren Foundation was created in 1945 by the William K. Warren of Warren Petroleum Corporation of Delaware. When the company was sold to the Gulf Oil Corporation in 1953,  Warren turned his attention almost solely to philanthropy, specifically causes serving Catholic purposes. In collaboration with the Diocese of Tulsa, the Warren Foundation established Saint Francis Hospital in 1959 and Laureate Psychiatric Clinic and Hospital in 1989. Today, the Saint Francis Health System and medical research remain the primary recipients of Warren Foundation grants, though, through the generosity and vision of William K. and Natalie O. Warren, the Warren Foundation provides financial assistance in support of numerous other worthy charitable, scientific, Catholic, and health programs dedicated to improving the quality of life. The Warren Foundation primarily limits its grants to non-profit organizations in and around Tulsa, Okla., and includes many educational causes within the diocese.
