Governor George & Donna Nigh ~ Oklahoma Treasures
October 2014


How many of you listening know how the song "Oklahoma!" from the iconic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical became our state song?
Former Governor George Nigh, Donna Nigh and Gerry Bonds

Our guests are Former Governor George Nigh and his gracious First Lady, Donna.  Governor George Nigh was just a young state representative in 1953 when he introduced legislation to adopt it as our state song. LISTEN NOW

The Nighs have close ties to a lot of great things that we enjoy in the Sooner State. LISTEN NOW to relive some great memories with the Nighs and find out what they're looking forward to in the future.

Governor Nigh's favorite quote is from President Theodore Roosevelt. “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” George and Donna Nigh live that wisdom every day...and what a gift they are to Oklahoma!

Support for this program is provided by the Chickasaw Country, providing information about events and attractions throughout the Chickasaw Nation and South Central Oklahoma.  Information at ChickasawCountry.com
