Local university to honor OKC bombing anniversary with flags

EDMOND, Okla. – Oklahomans are gathering together to mark the 19th anniversary of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bombing.

At 6:00 a.m. on Friday, April 18, student and staff volunteers will post 168 Oklahoma flags and 168 U.S. flags on the front lawn of the Oklahoma Christian University (OC) campus at 2501 East Memorial Road.

The “Ralph and Maxine Harvey Field of Flags” at Oklahoma Christian is a dual tribute to the victims of the Murrah Federal Building bombing on April 19, 1995, and the terror attacks on September 11, 2001.

The hope is that each person who sees the memorial tribute will take a moment to remember the 168 lives lost on that dreadful day.

Edmond married couple helps international students in numerous ways

EDMOND, Okla. – College can be a daunting time for many young people.

It’s particularly challenging for international students who find themselves far from home in a country vastly different from their own.

Charlie and Dona Bunn have worked for 17 years with University of Central Oklahoma students to change that.

“They do so much,” says Sherry Spencer.

So much, in fact, that Sherry nominated the Bunns for this week’s Pay It Forward Award.

David Fiesel, from Spirit Bank Mortgage, helped NewsChannel Four’s Linda Cavanaugh surprise the couple.

“When you say ‘Charlie’ to the International students, they’re like ‘Oh, Charlie’s house,” Sherry says.  “Everyone knows who Charlie is because he’s helped them all in so many different ways.”
