Last week I was privileged to be in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, for the Oklahoma Wesleyan University Board of Trustees meeting. After the last session, I got my camera out and took a few pictures.
The campus coffee house, Doc Lacy’s, is named for my father. It includes a fireplace, lounge seating, café tables and chairs, and an internet area. The original design has been expanded to include a patio by the lake and outside seating. The lake and patio can be seen reflected in the windows. This is a very special place for me as it reminds me of a wonderful Dad and the many years he (and my mom) invested in the lives of young people.
Doc Lacy’s is a great place for students to drink coffee, play games, visit, and study. The student government organization plans special activities and contests at Doc Lacy’s throughout the year.
A remarkable Scott Stearman bronze sculpture is located beside the lake next to the library. It depicts the blind man after being healed by Jesus at the pool of Siloam. The lake in the background is spring-fed, hence the beautiful, clear water. Students often fish there. This picture was taken just before chapel, so no one was fishing at the time.
I feel privileged to serve on the OKWU Board of Trustees. This campus is a beautiful “gem” set in Bartlesville.
