A warm welcome, Pam Mowry is the Executive Director of Canterbury Voices. She has more than twenty years of nonprofit management experience, primarily in the areas of fundraising, board development and event management. Mowry’s career began at the Oklahoma Arts Institute at Quartz Mountain in 1998. In 2005, she joined the staff of Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma just as their capital campaign was getting underway to renovate and endow three properties on NW 16th Street in Oklahoma City, known as the Plaza District. Lyric was successful in reaching its goal to double their artistic programming and expand their community outreach when the historic Plaza Theatre opened in December 2007. Mowry left Lyric in 2012 to become the Executive Director of Oklahoma AIDS Care Fund, and coordinated three Red Tie Night events before joining the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County staff, and now Canterbury Voices.

During her career, Mowry has served as Chairman of the Oklahoma Arts Conference in Oklahoma City and served on the Oklahoma State University College of Arts & Sciences Alumni Board. Mowry has served as a guest speaker and panelist on various fundraising topics, including capital campaigns, corporate sponsorships, and creative fundraising ideas.

Mowry earned a Bachelor of Music with Elected Studies in Business degree from Oklahoma State University.

Aurthor of Mighty EndeavorThe American Nation & WWII

In Mighty Endeavor: The American Nation and the Second World War historian Blaine Browne provides a highly readable introduction to the war’s military course and its domestic consequences. World War II represented a major transformative event for America, laying the foundations for a modern postwar superpower. Browne chronicles the political, diplomatic, military, economic, and social developments from the end of World War I to the Cold War and economic boom of the postwar years. Each chapter features opening and closing biographies of individuals, some famous, some forgotten, who helped shape the war effort. The profiles represent a wide variety of Americans, civilian and military, men and women, and representing diverse races and ethnicities. Readers who recall the war years to those students studying it for the first time will find The Mighty Endeavor a superb gateway to a pivotal period of American and world history.

Mike Knopp brought rowing to Oklahoma City University as the first rowing coach for OCU ever. OCU became the first varsity rowing program in Oklahoma in 2004 after Knopp started the program as a club team in 2000.
Under Knopp’s guidance, OCU has garnered multiple achievements on and off the water. The success of OCU rowers has increased every year during Knopp’s tenure and has included multiple rowing champions and seen OCU rowers compete on the U.S. Under-23 national team.
Knopp has been instrumental in growing the sport in the state. Knopp was also the driving force behind the OCU Head of the Oklahoma Regatta, an annual rowing competition that attracts more than 50,000 spectators and competitors to Oklahoma City each year. This event has been recognized as the “National Regatta of the Year” and was the first U.S. Rowing competition to include night racing.
Other achievements include the designation of the Oklahoma River as an official Olympic training site, the construction of the Chesapeake finish line tower, multiple local, national, and international championship competitions, and the master plan development of the Oklahoma River.

HYGIENE DRIVE 2020

For those who have been incarcerated, basic needs are not always available. Without employment, transportation, housing, or money, starting “fresh” can be difficult – if not impossible. TEEM’s mission is to break those cycles of poverty and incarceration by providing resources and education to those in need. Each year, the community has an opportunity to join this mission by dropping off hygiene products at donation boxes around Oklahoma City. With unemployment rates and sanitation needs increased as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the need is even greater this year than in years past, and we hopes to collect 7,300 hygiene products over the two-month time period.
