Armenta Wight, Champion of Character

The Edmond City Council recognized Edmond resident Armenta Wight as a “Champion of Character” for the character trait of tolerance, during their Monday night city council meeting.

Wight has demonstrated tolerance by “not letting differences keep you from being considerate to everyone,” wrote Jeri Taylor in her consideration why Wight qualifies as a “Champion of Character.”

In Wight’s role as secretary of several senior bowling leagues at Boulevard Lanes, Taylor had noted Wight’s sweet, loving attitude and the consideration that she displays regardless of gender, race, faith and especially age differences.

“Armenta does not let any of the differences keep her from being considerate to everyone. She has a listening ear and would never say or do anything to hurt anyone. She goes out of her way to treat everyone equally and fairly. She tolerates the complaints that come with the job; she tolerates unlovely people with loving kindness,” wrote Taylor. “There are people that are mentally slow; she graciously guides and directs without making those people feel inferior. She is patient, kind, considerate … loved by all.”

As a result of her tolerance, Armenta Wight was honored by the City Council on June 26, 2006 for representing Edmond as a “champion of character.”
