Heritage Center Wins Innovator of the Year Award
The Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center was recently chosen by The Journal Record as a 2012 recipient of the Innovator of the Year Award for Innovative Partnership between a state agency and a local organization. The new Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center is the result of a unique operating partnership between the Oklahoma Historical Society which supplies the museum staff and owns and manages the facility and the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center, Inc., a local non-profit that raised $10 million for the facility transformation and oversees daily operations.
The awards dinner was held on April 5 at the Tulsa Renaissance Convention Center in Tulsa. Forty-Four Oklahoma companies and organizations from a broad spectrum of commerce were honored for their innovative technologies, products and programs. The overall winner of the evening was Dr. David Albert of AliveCor who developed an electrocradiogram app for Smartphones.
The Journal Record is an established leader in recognizing companies that foster economic development in Oklahoma. Each spring the Innovator of the Year Awards are held to celebrate business innovation by honoring Oklahomans who set themselves apart with products and services that change the marketpalace and make the state a better place to live and work.
