Your Seat 3 representative is Mrs. Lori Capshaw.  Mrs. Capshaw took office in February of 2008 and is currently serving her second five year term.  Prior to running for the Board seat, she was a very active parent of three Ardmore students.  She was asked to participate in a facilities committee to gather information regarding facility needs around the district.  From there she was encouraged to run for the position and we are so glad she did. Lori Capshaw attended the OU and met her husband Bill on the day she moved into the dorms.  They were married in 1981 and moved to Bill’s home town of Ardmore in December of 1983.  Bill Capshaw is an Ardmore Tiger graduating with the Class of 1969.  For those of us who are long-time Ardmoreites, you might remember Bill’s parents, Everett and Iva Lou Capshaw, owners of the iconic Texoma Office Supply for 53 years. When asked what her favorite thing about being a board member is, she noted that she really enjoys attending graduation each year.  It is an honor to be a part of the ceremony and to watch the students finish their high school years and start the next chapter of the lives.
