Mary Rose Smith (left) came to us several years back with an idea in mind and the moxie to make it happen. We love it when we get energy behind ideas! Mary Rose saw an opportunity to build a wing in the organization that would allow young people to connect with the Warrior Mission.

She started the OK Junior Board. The JRB has been active since its inception, engaging young adults from OPRF, Fenwick and Trinity high schools. Members serve thru a variety of volunteer engagements and events that focus on the communal connection between Warriors and peers.

It is no small feat to gather young adults and capture their attention to the purpose of mission. We are forever grateful for Mary Rose and her efforts in building this most important bridge in our mission. The mission does not sustain without the next generation coming up to carry the torch. Thank you for all you do, Mary Rose. You are the Ultimate Warrior!
