Dr. Barry Pollard, of Waukomis, and Dr. Judith James, whose hometown is Pond Creek, were honored for their contributions to the field of medicine and to the state of Oklahoma. Born, raised and educated in Oklahoma, Pollard, a long time neurosurgeon, was recognized for advancing health care and agriculture in the state. In addition, Pollard is an active farmer of approximately 10,000 acres and a member of the American Angus Association, for which he serves as vice president and will lead the organization as president in 2024.


An internationally recognized physician and scientist, James, who serves as executive vice president at Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, is a fifth-generation Oklahoman who has dedicated her career to understanding autoimmune diseases and improving the health of the state’s residents. An elected member of the Association of American Physicians, in 2022 she became the first Oklahoma woman elected to the National Academy of Medicine, one of the highest honors bestowed in the field.
