During a recent (June 28, 2010) Champion of Character presentation before the Edmond City Council, a unique event came about when “new” Champion of Character Mary Ellen Bridwell was honored for her Compassion. What makes this unique, said Character Council of Edmond president, Jim Hulsey, is that Mary Ellen’s husband, Gary Bridwell is a past Champion of Character in April of 2006 for his ‘resourcefulness,” and to go a step further, the person that nominated Mary Ellen, Lee Lavender, is a June 2007 Champion of Character for her discernment. To add even more grace and glitter, the presentation was performed by Character Council of Edmond board member, and currently Miss Oklahoma America 2010, Emoly West.
