CN)--Congratulations to our friend and colleague Clayton Nolen.

Nolen was one of three honorees recognized at the ceremony. Krista Roberts and Connie Sturgeon-Hart were the other finalists. The Enid News & Eagle, along with community partners, created Pillar of the Plains in 2003 to recognize local people who work tirelessly and selflessly to better the Enid community.
