Former ODLC Executive Director Passes Away

It is with heavy hearts and great sadness ODLC announces the death of our long time Executive Director, Kayla Bower.  Kayla passed away yesterday following a long and brave battle with cancer.  Kayla served as the Executive Director of ODLC from 1995 until her retirement last year.

Kayla was a charismatic leader and caring, compassionate professional who devoted more than twenty years of her career to promoting, protecting and preserving the rights of Oklahomans with disabilities.  The ODLC staff will honor her life and professional mission by continuing the implementation of her professional vision and upholding the philosophy she instilled within us.  Kayla will be greatly missed; our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time.

Arrangements for services are still pending, we will pass information along as it becomes available.

Melissa Sublett, Executive Director
